Publisher Comments:

What could be better than family and friends gathered around a table laden with laughter and good food? The Food Network's Cat Cora is the perfect companion in the kitchen to help create meals and memories to share and remember. With recipes inspired by Cat's Greek heritage and her roots in the American South, honed by her experiences in restaurants in France and California, Cat Cora's Kitchen shines with simplicity and flavor. Organized by menu, these dishes tempt palates with specialties such as freshly baked Spana-kopita, the traditional Greek favorite of spinach, dill, and feta in pastry, and savory chicken stew, redolent of wine, garlic, and cinnamon. Desserts are also not-to-be-missed, with treats such as the Orange-Scented Almond Cookies or an unusual rolled version of Baklava. The pantry offers basic recipes for homemade stock and a resource section gives suggestions for finding unusual ingredients. With gorgeous photographs throughout, these approachable, elegant dishes will leave everyone asking for the recipe.

Synopsis:

Richard Wottrich, June 2, 2006 (view all comments by Richard Wottrich)
It is no secret that many a chef is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. Many can cook, but few can communicate.

Cat Cora is very bright and articulate; one of the most intelligent chefs out there. Her ability to communicate the essence of a recipe is superb. Cat Cora's Kitchen, her first book, is an interesting start and well worth adding to any cookbook collection.

Cora is a Greek Southern woman and her family heritage is that of restaurateurs; an interesting combination to be sure. She comes by her skills honestly as a graduate of the CIA. More importantly she has worked under two of France's three-star Michelin chefs: George Blanc and Roger Verge. She is the real deal.
