Additional Details

Description: In the tradition of the bestselling Tassajara Bread Book and Tassajara Cooking, Ed Brown has compiled a new collection of recipes from Zen Mountain Center at Tassajara. Inspired by the culinary favorites of the Center's summer guests, these recipes combine the best of gourmet vegetarian cookery with "California cuisine." 

From appetizers to desserts, the recipes presented here use the freshest ingredients in ways that will tantalize the palates of everyone from down-home vegetarians to the most discriminating gourmet cooks. In his inimitable style, the author introduces the recipes with charming stories about where they came from, suggestions for how and when to serve them, and precise instructions for making them perfectly. 

Among the hundred-or-so recipes are Almond Pate, Jack Cheese and Onion Tart with Cumin Seeds, Pasta with Mustard Butter and Broccoli, Carrot Ginger Salad with Golden Raisins and Sour Cream, Green Bean Soup with Basil Butten Blueberry Muffins, Vanilla Creme Anglaise, and Grapefruit Champagne Ice. 

Interspersed among the recipes are drawings, photographs, and poems that can only enhance the joy of cooking from this book. Author Ed Brown has helped found and run the enormously successful Greens restaurant in San Francisco. He is also a past president of the San Francisco Zen Center.
