Description: Inside Chai's Island Bistro, the acclaimed restaurant in downtown Honolulu, a sophisticated interior of glass and wood is set off by exotic highlights, lush foliage and colorful artwork from Hawaii and southeast Asia. Amid this tropical elegance diners discover a cuisine that mirrors this unique blend of East and West: Ahi Katsu with Yellow Curry Sauce and Mango-Tomato Salsa. Salmon Tartare with Crispy Taro Chips in Lemon-Dill Cream Sauce. Butternut Squash Bisque with Seafood Dumplings. Pad Thai Noodles with Crab Claws. And the signature dish -- Kataifi and Macadamia Nut-Crusted Black Tiger Prawns.
This bright culinary palette has been painted by the celebrated chef Chai Chaowasaree, who continues to earn top professional awards and rave reviews after more than two decades in Hawaii Regional Cuisine. The tastes and textures of his native Thailand are clearly evident here, but so too are the influences of Europe, the Americas and the Pacific Rim. Whatever the origin, each of these distinctive dishes is prepared with the freshest local ingredients from throughout the Islands -- shellfish from aquafarms on the other side of Oahu, onions and strawberries from upcountry Maui, organically grown baby greens from the Big Island of Hawaii and fresh fish caught in local waters.
In The Island Bistro Cookbook, Chef Chai captures both the contemporary ambience of his restaurants and the secrets of his unique style of fusion cuisine. Here is his long-awaited guide to cooking simple yet elegant dishes -- equally at home in a tropical bistro or on your own dinner table.
