World-renowned chef and culinary innovator, Norman Van Aken is the owner of the award-winning Miami restaurant Norman's. He is one of the only chefs in America to have won the James Beard Award, the Robert Mondavi Award, and the Food Arts Silver Spoon for lifetime achievement.
I have given 5 stars to this book because I value Norman's input.
Still don't let that stop you from getting this captivating, unique cookbook that I'm sure will be a great culinary jouney for me, and become a classic in my library.
It is possible that he also contributed to the use of European fortified wines in recipes, although that may very easily be a Portuguese addition.
I ordered the Kindle version and returned it as there were zero photographs. I opened it on my Mac. Perhaps they show up on the iPad... but not on the Mac or the iPhone.Published on February 26, 2013 by Gift Card Recipient
