Rob Feenie's Casual Classics: Everyday Recipes for Family and Friends Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Home cooking is the current buzzword in culinary circles, and just about every Michelin-starred chef--from Ferran Adria to Heston Blumenthal to Jean-Georges Vongerichten--has published a book of simple recipes for everyday meals. Canada's first Iron Chef, Rob Feenie, first wowed diners with his innovative tasting menus combining classic cooking techniques, international flavours and local produce in the 1990s at the Relais and Chateaux-designated Lumière Restaurant in Vancouver. By 2007, he was at the vanguard of the casual fine dining movement, creating simple, delicious and unique family-style recipes for Cactus Restaurants. Every day thousands of people of all ages eat his signature dishes, which are known for their addictive flavours.

Rob Feenie's Casual Classics brings together the best of these delicious and approachable meals. From appetizers to desserts, every recipe has been tested on Feenie's family and friends, including his own three kids--aged 3, 6 and 7. In addition, he regularly trains Red Seal chefs using variations on these dishes, so they are tried and true, reliable meals that appeal to finicky eaters and adventurous diners and that can easily be adapted to any occasion or dietary preference.

Every good recipe begins with fresh ingredients, an understanding of their flavours and some basic kitchen skills. From such fundamental recipes as roasted tomato sauce and juicy poached chicken to globally inspired dishes such as barbecued duck spring rolls and quinoa jambalaya and braised osso buco, Feenie shares his modern classics and adds practical tips for saving time and money. The result is a one-stop compendium of casual recipes to teach and inspire home chefs, written as if Chef Feenie were cooking beside you. It is a beautifully designed book that will become a staple in your kitchen for years to come.
