Description: In his famous Los Angeles restaurants, Spago and Chinois on Main, Wolfgang Puck has created some of the world's most imaginative dishes, combining French, Italian and Oriental techniques. In this inspiring collection of over two hundred recipes, Wolfgang Puck shows you how to recreate these fabulous dishes in your own kitchen from readily available ingredients.
East fearlessly meets West, and many regions between -- in first courses like Stir-Fried Scallop Salad and Spicy Honey-Glazed Baby Pork Ribs; in soups from Tortilla to delicate Cream of Corn with Oysters to hearty Clam and Mussel; in simple and sophisticated main dishes, like Sizzling Catfish, Baby Pork Chops with Cranberry Sauce, and Chicken with Garlic and Parsley; in Spago's signature gourmet pizzas such as Pizza with Smoked Salmon and Golden Caviar and Pizza with Shrimp and Sun-Dried Tomatoes; and in desserts that range from the subtle to the sublime, from a refreshing Grapefruit Tequila Sherbet to a decadent Jack Daniels Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.
Every recipe, each a triumph of innovation, exemplifies Puck's unique style: a passion for blending the elements of cuisines the world over, a freshness and simplicity of ingredients and presentation, and, above all, a free and joyful approach to food. The guiding principle behind the creations that emerge from Puck's kitchens ("my playgrounds," he calls them) is that good food should give great pleasure -- to the cook as well as to the diner.
Illustrated throughout with engaging drawings by Puck himself, The Wolfgang Puck Cookbook is an utterly original collection of great recipes -- and an utterly original culinary style -- that no cook will be able to resist adopting.
