Description: What is Bistro Latino? It's skewered shrimp, marinated in a mixture of smoky chipotle chiles and sweet guava paste, grilled to perfection with juicy chunks of pineapple. It's gazpacho like you've never had it -- a refreshing soup of blackberries, strawberries, and peaches, sparked with a little minced red onion and cilantro. And it's mashed potatoes, kicked up Latin style, whipped together with roasted garlic and black beans.
Bistro Latino is homey, appetite-inspiring food that brings the big, sunny flavors of Latin America -- with a touch of the Mediterranean -- into your kitchen. It's cooking that's familiar -- with a twist. Tired of making the same old roast chicken? Try it Peruvian style, rubbed with a puree of honey, cilantro, chipotle chiles, and soy sauce (known as salsa negra or black sauce in Latin America) and served with purple potatoes roasted with olive oil, garlic, and thyme. Are barbecued ribs your thing? Next time pop them on the grill slathered with sweet-and-sour Citrus Marmalade.
Reinterpret french fries, dusting them with ground cumin, or potato chips, using fried plantain instead. Are you a chocoholic? You've met your match in Flourless Chocolate Cake with Coffee Glaze, Frozen Chocolate Pudding with Cashew Nuts, and Espresso Almond Brownies.
Bistro Latino is food that is meant to be shared and enjoyed with family or friends. If you're having a get-together, try serving a selection of colorful Bistro Latino cocktails (Pisco Sours, Caipirinha, Mango Mimosas, Passionfruit Batidas) and savory appetizers (Latin Crab Cakes, Spicy Vegetable Empanadas, Tuna Ceviche with Coconut, Goat Cheese and Basil Tamales). Or make your dinner party a family-style affair with Ecuadoran Shrimp and Corn Chowder, Chicken in the Pot, Latin Style, Colombian Pot Roast, or New World Paella. Round out the meal with side dishes like Roasted Corn and Garlic Rice, Potato Chipotle Gratin, and Mashed Sweet Plantains.
Bistro Latino will give you a whole new vocabulary for everyday cooking.
