Exceptional Recipe Collection From Superstar,
This review is from: From Emeril's Kitchens: Favorite Recipes from Emeril's Restaurants (Hardcover)
Nevermind if you dig his TV antics or not, this guy can cook and this is proven by this marvelously creative and fun collection from his restaurants.
I especially enjoy the history behind the recipe and the wild ingredients, techniques and serving suggestions which accompany this all-star lineup.
Try these, they're kicked up notches! Caribbean-Style Chicken with Brown-Sugar-Peanut Spice Rub, Sweet Potatio-Banana Casserole, Guacomole, and Crispy Plantain Stips; Blue Crab, Smoked Salmon, and Caviar Salad with Dilled Buttermilk Dressing; Chicken Baked In Aromatic Salt Crust; Root Beer-Glazed Pork Chops with Bourbon-Mashed Sweet Potatoes and Carmelized Onions; Sour Cream Toffee Fudge Cake; White Chocolate Raspberry Mascarpone Cream Pie in a Pistachio Crust.
Yes, for the cook who is not use to ingredients that are not common to the average chef, this can be intimidating as well as the steps to pull it all off. But, for those who want to expand and have fun preparing and serving, this is exceptional!
Also included is good source listing.
