Item Details

A rising star in the food world, Michael Psilakis is co-owner of a growing empire of modern Mediterranean restaurants, and one of the most exciting young chefs in America today. In How to Roast a Lamb , the self-taught chef offers recipes from his restaurants and his home in this, his much-anticipated first cookbook.nbsp; Ten chapters provide colorful and heartfelt personal essays that lead into thematically related recipes. Gorgeous color photography accompanies many of the recipes throughout.nbsp; Psilakis's cooking utilizes the fresh, naturally healthful ingredients of the Mediterranean augmented by techniques that define New American cuisine.

I love exploring cuisines & seeing what I can (& can't) bring to my own table, which is gluten free. I really like the recipes that are relatively simple & easy to do, use natural, easily found ingredients & that are naturally gluten free. Or those that are easily adapted. This book met all of that, & more!

Names of recipes in English followed by Greek.

I found the following pages interesting:

p. 14 photo of cherry tomatoes

p. 27 Stewed English Peas & Mushrooms

p. 30 Grilled Watermelon & Grilled Manouri

p. 44 Octopus, Salami & Apples with Anchovy Vinaigrette

p. 88 Whole Chicken Soup with Avgolemeno & Orizo

p. 94 & 95 for fish overlay

p. 141's story - using unconventional cuts or the worst cuts of meat and showing that "all food is beautiful."

p. 270 vinaigrettes

p. 276 candied cherries, quince, orange peels
