Description: A little storefront restaurant opened in a downtown neighborhood of Philadelphia in 1973. It was simply named Frog. Out of that little eatery grew a collection of some of America's most innovative and successful restaurants, including Frog, The Commissary, and a catering operation known as Frog/Commissary Catering. Now, from their founding chef/ restaurateur, Steven Poses, and his colleagues Anne Clark and Becky Roller, comes a sumptuous cookbook that brings together hundreds of kitchen-tested recipes, tips, and information about their personal approach to food preparation, and an intimate look into the workings of a family of America's most unusual restaurants.
Organized by meal course, the book contains several hundred recipes, innovative, adapted for serving at home, and reflecting the quixotic, multiethnic blend of foods and ingredients the restaurants are famous for. In addition, the margins are full of extra recipes, insider tips on food preparation and service, and delightful anecdotes about the curious and exhilarating experience of running restaurants. This bountiful feast of information is also a lavish treat for the eyes, with Becky Roller's wonderful drawings and calligraphy gracing each page.
The Frog/Commissary Cookbook is the perfect introduction to a very special culinary world, and the ideal addition to every cook's and restaurant-goer's home library.
