Description: Thirty minutes, three amazing courses, and one really nice guy who serves up some really mean food. This is what thousands have rightly come to expect when they tune in to the second season of Jim Coleman's public television series, Flavors of America, and what you'll find in this companion volume cookbook.  

As the executive chef at Philadelphia's five-diamond Rittenhouse Hotel, the host of the NPR show The Chef's Table, a weekly newspaper columnist, and a guest on various Food Network specials, Jim Coleman is definitely a star on the rise. 

But he is really just your average guy -- who happens to be an excellent cook. Each dish in his cookbook follows the same philosophy that governs his television show - the food must be simple, delicious, and easy to re-create in the home kitchen. These recipes are meant to become your favorites and to be used. 

His television show is a veritable culinary road trip, wending its way through the back roads and ethnic neighborhoods of America. Now Jim Coleman's Flavors expands upon the highlights of his travels, introducing readers to farmers, fishermen, chefs, restaurateurs, and the television show's production team -- all of whom share Jim's passion for good food. The famously gorgeous produce from the Chino family farm in southern California inspires a recipe for Poached Chicken with Farm Vegetables, while the freshly caught fish of Pike Place Market is the starting point for Seattle Salmon Provencal Style. From the ever-present corn dogs of sunbelt state fairs to the cool briny tang of Miami's ceviches, from the sizzling clay pots of Chinatown to the sweet goodness of Georgia peach cobblers, Jim Coleman's Flavors is a heartfelt anthem to America's richly diverse cuisine. 

Sidebars bring you up close and personal to staples like butter and cheese or luxurious foodstuffs like American caviar and avocados, Madeira wine and mangos. Jim Coleman's Flavors takes you through the year, with Chinese New Year celebrations, Fourth of July blasts, children's parties, and Mother's Day breakfasts in bed. Done Jim Coleman's way, everything is easy, fun, flavorful, and decidedly American.
