Description: Mealtime at home can be as romantic and exciting as it is at a country inn. When you prepare recipes from some of America's great country inn chefs, "you're cooking up more than just another dish," says country inn lifestyles expert Gail Greco. "You're cooking up a feeling." The author has gathered more than thirty inspiring menus and nearly two hundred recipes for bringing that feeling into your home on any occasion.
Great Cooking with Country Inn Chefs is a first-of-its-kind tribute to the chefs of country inns who have made their establishments not just places to stay the night, but places where the meals arc a highlight. Gail Greco introduces inspiring chefs who have shared their recipes and menus prepared especially for this book. Here you will participate in the author's experiences at the inns, get to know each of the chefs, and pick up tips for cooking and serving these wonderful meals.
In the course of the the book's journey, you will visit an inn that was once a stop on a stagecoach trail. You will meet a New England chef who prepares her meals over an open hearth, and you will enjoy the fare of another who looks to North Africa for some easy, healthy, and unusual dishes. A chef who sends divers off the Maine coast for the freshest jewels of the sea offers delicious seafood dishes you can replicate for your guests. A southern chef prepares a recipe from a hit movie, and a chef from the Southwest who hand picks organic ingredients from Pueblo family farms offers instruction on fire-roasting vegetables, baking native American flatbread, and using squash blossoms in sweet tarts. Here is the work of some of the most creative and exciting chefs in America today.
In Great Cooking with Country Inn Chefs many of the same menus and dishes that attract diners to these very special inns arc beautifully pictured with recipes that were specially selected and edited for the home cook.
