Description: Tucked away in a quiet neighborhood in Portland, Oregon, is Caprial's Bistro, a cozy unassuming restaurant bustling with locals and visitors alike who have come for some of the very best food in the Pacific Northwest. It wasn't long ago that Caprial Pence and her namesake bistro were one of the region's best-kept secrets. But today Caprial has become the Pacific Northwest chef everyone's talking about.
In her award-winning public television cooking series and three previous books, Caprial has proven that great cooking doesn't have to be difficult, or time-consuming. A working mother, Caprial's cooking style grew out of the French bistro tradition -- small neighborhood restaurants serving simple, delicious food that comes together in a flash.
And as the Pacific Northwest's culinary ambassador, Caprial has shown us new exciting ways to cook with her region's foods -- wild mushrooms, hazelnuts, berries, and salmon, to name a few. Now, in Caprial's Bistro-Style Cooking, she presents nearly 200 new recipes simple enough for weeknight dinners yet special enough for weekend entertaining. Here's a taste:
- Smoked Salmon Chowder
- Snow Peas with Ginger if Almonds
- Warm Spinach Salad with Gorgonzola Dressing
- Golden Double-Crust Mushroom Pit
- Dark Chocolate Cheesecake with Warm Cherry Compote
Caprial's Bistro is more than just a restaurant. It's a comfy place where you can nestle into a nook with good book and a latte, or laugh out loud as you enjoy a world-class meal. Now, with Caprial's latest recipes in hand, you don't even have to leave your kitchen to experience the best of her charming bistro.
