Description: The desire to present culinary secrets from around the world spurred the creation of the Discovery Channel TV series World Class Cuisine. Now with this cookbook, you will travel with Gail Greco and the show to inns that were once castles, convents, palaces, and old farmhouses. You will find out how to recreate a special meal from a restaurant below the Greek Acropolis, a bistro by a misty English lake, and a crystal-studded dining room overlooking a dew-filled Irish meadow.
The author and photographer who took you to America's country inns in Great Cooking with Country Inn Chefs (named one of the best cookbooks of 1992) now take you to Ireland, Portugal, Scotland, Greece, and England so you can cook many of the regional specialties featured on the series: Shrimp with Tomato and Feta Cheese, Beef Portuguesa with Honey Vegetable Sauce, Chicken with Hazelnut Filling, Carrot Soup with Honey and Ginger, Sticky Toffee Pudding, Yogurt and White-Chocolate Cheesecake, and many more.
Visit a chef who angles for the day's catch and one whose beekeeping hobby influences his recipes. Discover how to serve the traditional Irish Breakfast and a proper English tea. Visit a goat cheese farm. Find out how to host a party for friends the way the Greeks do.
The author reveals: "World class cuisine is really farmer's market cuisine mixed with an intrepid teaming of ingredients, sterling culinary techniques, and the pure essence of art on the plate." Go with her to discover what she uncovered behind the scenes in the world's best kitchens.
