Description: After nearly two decades of practicing his art, Charlie Trotter has established himself as the true visionary of modern American cuisine. His eponymous Chicago restaurant is one of the world's premier dining destinations, and his landmark cookbook series and TV show set the standard for gourmet cooking in the United States.
While many have marveled at Charlie Trotter's deluxe cookbooks, the task of preparing his world-class cuisine in the home kitchen can be intimidating. When faced with the demands of a hectic schedule, however, even Chef Trotter streamlines his recipes for home meals, focusing on basic ingredients, clear, crisp flavors, and straightforward presentations.
In Charlie Trotter Cooks at Home, the chef presents over 125 recipes, culled from his repertoire of favorite home dishes. Each recipe bears Trotter's signature style, yet is grounded in simple, time-honored cooking techniques. An appetizer of sweet, sumptuous Crispy Chicken Wontons with Apricot-Curry Sauce goes from recipe to table in a mere half hour; a dinner of Herb-Crusted Halibut with Roasted Potatoes and Shiitake Mushroom Sauce requires only eight ingredients and a minimum of preparation time, yielding a dish that is at once complexly flavored, exquisitely aromatic, and remarkably healthful. The desserts range from delicate, delectable Chilled Peaches with Champagne Granite to a classically comforting Chocolate-Praline Bread Pudding with Cinnamon Cream.
Trotter also offers easy-to-follow advice on preparing multi-course meals and presents sample menus, complete with wine suggestions and advance preparation tips, for pulling off extraordinary dinners with minimal fuss. With Charlie Trotter Cooks at Home, you'll elevate your everyday cooking and entertaining to a higher level, all with the style and sophistication of the country's premier chef.
