Description: Located in the sophisticated little seaside village of Camden, Maine, is the elegant Hartstone Inn, owned and operated by chef Michael Salmon and his wife Mary Jo. In the five years since Michael has been serving his signature five-course gourmet dinners, it is not surprising that the Hartstone Inn has become one of Penobscot Bay's most sought-after dining experiences. Nor is it surprising that this, Michael's first cookbook, is intelligent and tantalizing and thoroughly rewarding.
Michael Salmon is a chef who trusts his instincts. His cooking, influenced by local New England ingredients, French techniques and his love for Caribbean cuisine, is inspired and astonishing and all about taste. His culinary range is vast, capturing the flavors and essence of many cuisines from Thailand to Italy. His passion for cooking is contagious.
Each day that Michael cooks, he provides his guests with a memorable dining experience -- a leisurely pace with pleasing-to-the-eye courses and to-die-for flavors. His cookbook, regardless of your level of expertise in the kitchen, invites you to re-create his kind of dining in your own home. Whether you're making Pistachio pound cake or Seared Maine diver scallops or more demanding recipes like Michael's renowned Souffles with a Creme anglaise or Thai pork dumplings, Michael's instructions for cooking are straightforward. Michael offers useful information about cooking with fresh herbs and unusual spices, plating presentation, even where to order cookware and specialty products. For making extraordinarily good food created by a masterful chef, this is a cookbook to come back to again and again.
