Description: The Junior League of San Diego presents a marvelous selection of twice-tested recipes that celebrate a fresh approach to cooking. From California cooks who choose variety and imagination, for cooks anywhere who choose the best, Delicious Decisions offers over 300 pages of great ideas. These decisions are easy to make.
Ingredients are fresh. Flavor combinations are tasty. Presentations are tempting. This is cooking with a California flair. And California cooking is decidedly unique, reflecting a region where cultural traditions mix, where a sunny climate yields produce in grand abundance, and where entertaining, both casual and elegant, indoors and out, is nearly an art. A little whimsy and a lot of creativity combined with down home goodness -- that's cooking with California in mind.
Here are some delicious decisions to think about: Appetizers to delight the eye and the palate. Breads and brunches that warm the heart and welcome friends. Soups and salads prepared with surprising new colors, textures, and tastes. From the Pacific, fresh seafood provides light and healthful main courses. Fresh vegetable and pasta dishes complement a vast range of chicken and meat entrees.
And more, from Mexican feasts to Chinese stir frys. Delicious Decisions also features fabulous recipes from master chefs and well-known southern California restaurants. Food facts and cooking tips accompany many recipes, and in each section, a regional resource is briefly explored, such wonders as fresh exotic fruits, the varieties of fiery peppers, or those very special California wines.
There's also a happy ending for dessert lovers -- sweet finishes from refreshingly light fruit ices to the heavenly richness of chocolate and nuts. Several choices. All delicious decisions.
