Book Description

December 1, 2010 1935690078 978-1935690078
Eleven years after publishing his much-acclaimed first cookbook, Alan Wong's New Wave Luau, Hawaii's master chef has new stories to tell and fresh recipes to share with his legions of devotees. The Blue Tomato: The Inspirations Behind the Cuisine of Alan Wong features 70 memorable dishes representing the best of Chef Alan, his innovative menus and the creative cooks and staff members who develop and refine them.

With stunning food photography and more than 200 individual recipes, The Blue Tomato confirms Chef Alan's place at the leading edge of the culinary arts. Here are time-proven favorites, inventive new dishes and ingenious adaptations of the multi-ethnic fare of the Pacific Rim.

More than just a cookbook, The Blue Tomato is a testament to Alan Wong's conviction that anything is possible in today's culinary arena—with the right mix of creativity, persistence and innovative thinking. Chef Alan presents a fresh, new approach to cooking and menu planning—an indispensable guide for the home cook and, at the same time, a collector's-edition blueprint for the evolution of contemporary cuisine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing December 5, 2010
Not only was the tasting menu at Alan Wong's restaurant in Honolulu one of the best meals of my life, this cookbook is impressive, innovative, and has beautiful pictures. He does a wonderful job fusing culinary influences from all over the world and creating a cuisine all his own.

based on his reputation I bought the book, not knowing if I would use it in the home kitchen. It is usable, Have not tried a lot of recipes yet but it opens up a new area for me. Trying to get a few under my belt and will report later.
