Description: The history of Virginia cookery is one of eclecticism. A variety of cultural backgrounds amongst Virginia's earliest inhabitants provided a commingling if not a confluence of tastes; fertile soil and an abundance of natural resources offered Virginia's cooks a vast cornucopia of delights. As demonstrated herein, Virginians throughout their history have displayed a concern for things culinary.
The recipes in this book, all from contemporary Virginia chefs, reflect a similar eclecticism. As before, the chefs are characterized by a notable diversity of backgrounds, both cultural and professional. The chefs are bound by a passion for cooking.
The Virginia Chefs Association felt compelled by the continually increasing interest of Virginians in the chefs' work to produce a volume of recipes embodying that passion. Included in this text is the most exciting fare from their restaurants' kitchens as well as some of the chefs' favorites -- home cooking in a truly Virginian sense. A technologically advanced world allows greater access to a plethora of possible ingredients. The essential tastes of Virginia and her rich culinary heritage, however, are still of primary importance.
