On the wildly popular show Iron Chef America, Cat Cora uses her instincts to transform random ingredients into exciting creations on a moment's notice. In this book, she turns her eye to some of our most popular dishes to make them faster, fresher, and lighter. These are the swift meals that Cat relies on when she comes home from work to cook for her own family: Greek-Style Nachos, Grilled Chili-Lime Flank Steak Soft Tacos, Crispy Baked Fish Stix with Mustard Dipping Sauce, Quick Chicken Curry with Peas, and Sour-Cherry-Filled Chocolate Cupcakes. In dishes like Baked "Fried" Calamari with Marinara Dipping Sauce and Tex-Mex Tuna Casserole, Cat puts a new spin on old favorites. She updates others, tossing chipotle-spiced croutons into a Caesar salad, or replacing the usual beef in stroganoff with chicken and adding fresh tarragon. Each recipe illustrates Cat's motto: just because a dish is a classic doesn't mean it can't be improved upon.

As in most families, Cat goes to classic favorites over and over, but updates them with new flavors to keep the meals both interesting and family friendly. The end result is recipes that please both adults and children. This is a cookbook that cooks will reach for over and over, virtually cooking their way through from beginning to end. Highlights (so far): Chicken Soup with Coconut, Fresh Basil and Chiles, which is great paired with Cilantro Slaw with Sauteed Garlic; and Sweet Potato Clam Chowder with Bacon, served with Corn Bread. Best of all, Cat shows cooks that they can take steps to update their own families' favorites and make them new and fresh.
I prepared a romantic dinner for two centered around Cat's recipe for Fettuccine with Scallops, Red Pepper and Lime and it was a delight to the palate.
Cat Cora's Classics with a Twist is a book I intend to purchase for several friends and family members. I highly recommend this for anyone who enjoys cooking or wants to learn from a master.

Yummy cookbook. Not the healthiest of foods. I think she normally uses a bit too much oil, but you can certainly adjust to your health standards.Published on November 27, 2013 by Alex K
