Description: The Trellis Restaurant, located on Duke of Gloucester Street in Colonial Williamsburg, is recognized as one of the finest and most innovative restaurants in the country today. Now Marcel Desaulniers, its resident culinary genius, shares his original, yet traditionally inspired approach to cooking in a volume that reflects the informal elegance of the restaurant and its seasonal menus.
The Trellis relies on the produce, game, fruits, and vegetables of the season and on its chef's ability to marry regional ingredients and sophisticated techniques. The Trellis Cookbook includes not only the restaurant's best recipes, but Marcel Desaulniers' own comments, which accompany nearly every dish. In the "Chef's Touch," Desaulniers offers the secrets and advice of a practiced professional, allowing you to prepare even the most complex recipe as if he were at your side. Together, these sections provide a master's cooking class unrivaled anywhere.
Following the approach of the Trellis, which offers four menus per year -- for Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter -- the cookbook arranges the recipes for appe- tizers, soups, salads, entrees, accompaniments, and desserts seasonally, allowing the imaginative cook to create meals as varied and exciting as Desaulniers'. Here arc Trellis hallmarks such as Chesapeake Bay Clam Chowder; Cucumbers, Watercress and Romaine Lettuce with Maytag Blue Cheese Dressing; Smoked Catfish with Country Ham; Pumpkin and Currant Bread; and the delectable dessert Death by Chocolate.
Seasonal and superb, this is American cooking at its finest - and a cookbook that is easy to use and pure pleasure to enjoy.
