Description: Greek-American culinary star Michael Psilakis has made a career out of straddling two worlds -- staying true to the spirit of traditional Greek cooking while exhibiting an American verve for breaking boundaries. With this much-anticipated first cookbook, Psilakis, a self-taught chef who during his meteoric rise has been named chef of the year by both Bon Appetit and Esquire, and best new chef by Food & Wine, shows that Greek cuisine is as accessible and delicious and crowd-pleasing as any in the world.
Home cooks who have gravitated to Italian cookbooks for the simple, user-friendly dishes, satisfying flavors, and comfortable, family-oriented meals will welcome Psilakis's approach to Greek food, with dishes that are easy to prepare, satisfying to share, remarkably healthful, and varied enough that they can be enjoyed any night of the week.
Across ten chapters Psilakis serves up a feast of compelling personal narrative that provides a framework for the 150 recipes: fresh salads and side dishes, delicious grilled meats, seafood specialties, and a delectable array of sauces, confits, and vinaigrettes that serve as building blocks for many of his signature dishes. From his mother he learned to love the sights and sounds and aromas of a busy kitchen, and he gained a lifelong appreciation for the family meal, not to mention a taste for throwing big parties. From his father he learned the value and pleasure of growing one's own fruits and vegetables from seed, catching and preparing fresh fish, and appreciating the origins of our food -- including a memorable lesson on how to roast a lamb.
With Psilakis's updated recipes for classics like spanakopita (spinach pie), stuffed baby eggplants, and even a Greek macaroni and cheese, How to Roast a Lamb will inspire home cooks to integrate delicious Greek flavors into their repertoire on a regular basis. The ambitious can tackle a tantalizing selection of Psilakis's recipes from the high-end dining hot spot Anthos, the only Michelin-star-rated Greek restaurant in America.
