Description: With four books and a nationally syndicated cooking show to her credit, Caprial Pence is fast becoming the Pacific Northwest's culinary ambassador. Her quaint Portland bistro has garnered rave reviews and become a local treasure, not to mention a destination for those erasing world-class cuisine in a charming neighborhood setting.
For her latest project, Caprial joins forces with the Bistro's chef Mark Dowers, to present the gourmet soups and sandwiches that have made the restaurant a prime lunch spot. With international ingredients becoming readily available in markets across the country, it's easier and more rewarding than ever for the home chef to add unique twists to old standbys, from the delightfully simple grilled cheese sandwich to the tried-and-true split pea soup. In this spirit, Caprial and Mark present twenty-five soup and twenty-five sandwich recipes, all distinguished by Caprial's hallmark commitment to the freshest seasonal ingredients and hassle-free preparation.
Sink your teeth into a Roasted Sweet Pepper Sandwich on Roasted Shallot -- Herb Brioche or a Seared Tuna Sandwich with Chinese Mustard Aioli; or ladle out a bowl of Hot-and-Sour Soup with Five-Spice Chicken or White Bean Soup with Sundried Tomatoes and Pancetta.
Whatever your fancy, these wonderful recipes also lend themselves well to on-the-spot creativity. The book is filled with recipes for aiolis, shmears, purees, and dressings -- all staples of the Bistro pantry -- that can be mixed and matched to create an exciting array of combinations that will inspire and challenge home chefs of all levels. In addition, master recipes are included for stocks and breads, making Caprial's Soups & Sandwiches an indispensable primer on crafting a perfect bowl of soup and an irresistible sandwich.
