Description: Brasseries are lively, friendly French eateries that offer robust food with maximum flavor and minimum fuss. Filled with bustling crowds, brasseries are more fun than bistros and their food more substantial than that of cafes. They cater to rich and poor, early birds and night owls, tourists and natives alike. Classic brasseries like Paris's La Coupole and Lyons's Brasserie Georges have been beloved by generations for their memorable flavors and generous spirit.
Award-winning chefs Rick Tramonto and Gale Gand have translated the French brasserie into a style uniquely American. American Brasserie presents the most beloved recipes of their acclaimed Chicago-area restaurant, Brasserie T, expertly interpreted for the home cook. The recipes in this book are ones that you will want to cook from again and again. They reflect the classic dishes of France, Italy, and America in all their alluring flavors and textures.
In addition to inspired recipes, American Brasserie offers seasonal menus for easy meal planning; a section on brasserie basics -- foundation recipes that include stocks, oils, and sauces; notes on wine and beer -- most recipes feature a beverage suggestion; mail-order sources for special ingredients; and even a listing of the authors' favorite brasseries in France.
The ebullient character and warm atmosphere of the traditional French brasserie, combined with the inspired, flavorful recipes of two American chefs results in a cookbook to savor. American Brasserie brings the classic tastes and sensations of Italy, France, and Chicago's Brasserie T to your own kitchen.
