Description: Do you want to know the best-kept secret of great restaurants? The chefs -- whether they work in an Italian trattoria, a Greek Ouzeri, a Hungarian Csarda, a French bistro, or even an English pub -- know how to buy the best food. And then, of course, they also know how to use it to create the classic dishes that everyone loves to eat. 

Author David Kingsmill lets you in on the most important secrets of the greatest chefs, secrets that will make your everyday cooking instantly better -- even if it's just bacon and eggs at breakfast or the backyard barbecue at night. He also shows you how the chefs make their great dishes, and how you can make the same dishes to entertain friends in a classic restaurant style right in your own home -- in your own "Home Bistro." 

For five years in the 1980s, David Kingsmill was the irreverent food writer of Canada's largest newspaper, the Toronto Star, and for four years was the paper's restaurant critic. Today he's an insider working as a food and restaurant consultant. For this book, he has combined his present vocation and "a surfeit of extensive travel and gluttony" to create menus for eight different types of restaurants, inspired by some of the best-known eating establishments in North America.
