Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill Cookbook: Explosive Flavors from the Southwestern Kitchenby Bobby Flay and Sally Jackson and Stephanie Banyas
Synopses & Reviews
Smoky, earthy, fruity, and spicy, the flavors of the Southwest have intrigued Bobby Flay ever since he was a young chef, eventually serving as the inspiration for the menu at his first restaurant, Mesa Grill. Now sixteen years later, Bobby's bold and vivacious take on this cuisine has made him a fixture on America's culinary scene and turned Mesa Grill into a veritable institution. In Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill Cookbook, the celebrity chef invites you to join him in the kitchen of his famous restaurant to learn the secrets of his of his signature contemporary Southwestern cuisine.
Here are 150 recipes for the drinks, appetizers, soups, salads, main dishes, sides, sauces, desserts, and brunch dishes that have earned Bobby his reputation for creating innovative combinations and big, rich flavors, including:
"Flay is everywhere: overseeing six restaurants, appearing on four TV shows plus his own Web site and now assembling his seventh cookbook in 13 years. Flay preps the reader for culinary adventure with a tequila guide followed by four different margarita recipes, and then sets off on a whirlwind tour of flavorful dishes inspired by the American Southwest. Flay's trademark is flavoring a perfectly grilled or roasted hunk of protein with smoke or chili or fruit, exemplified by Pan-Roasted Venison with Tangerine — Roasted Jalapeo Sauce and the slightly tamer Coffee-Rubbed Filets Mignons with Ancho-Mushroom Sauce. Shrimp, snapper and tuna dominate the seafood section, though there is also the quintessentially Flayvian Grilled Swordfish with Pineapple-Mustard Glaze and Cilantro-Mint Chimichurri. A chapter on brunches turns up the heat with dishes like Egg and Aged Sirloin Tortillas with Three-Pepper Relish. Coming full circle by drawing upon recipes from Mesa Grill, his first eatery, Flay also slyly opens the door for a series of cookbooks based on his other properties. 100 color photos not seen by PW." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"There are color photographs throughout, a guide to chilies and another one to tequila, and a pantry section. For fans of Flay's restaurants and TV shows, this is recommended." Library Jounrnal
The Food Network star shares 150 recipes for his bold Southwestern cuisine. This full-color cookbook also includes a list of must-haves for the Southwestern pantry, menu suggestions, and pointers on basic cooking techniques. 100 full-color photographs.
