Paradise Kitchen: Caribbean Cooking with Chef Daniel Orr


Paradise Kitchen: Caribbean Cooking with Chef Daniel Orr Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chef Daniel Orr spent years working in high-stress Manhattan kitchens before shifting gears and heading to the calm, turquoise waters of Anguilla in the British West Indies. Ever the student of world cuisine and an expert in combining the best of his local environment and global training, Orr unleashes the flavors of the island with his inspired dishes in Paradise Kitchen. Tales of island culture, local traditions, and personal discoveries add flavor to the chef's recipes for morning, midday, and evening meals, including tapas. Orr's innovative drink recipes using local fruits, spices, and herbs carry you through the day--from morning smoothies to sunset cocktails, after-dinner teas and flavored rums. Cookbook, memoir, and travel guide, this delightful book invites home cooks to savor the culinary joys of the Caribbean.
