Salmon (Northwest Homegrown Cookbook Series)by Cynthia Nims
Synopses & Reviews
First she brought you CRAB-succulent and fresh. Then it was sweet STONE FRUIT, followed by WILD MUSHROOMS and now SALMON. What better way to continue the wildly popular Northwest Homegrown Cookbook Series by award-winning chef and author, Cynthia Nims? Perhaps you'd like to start your day with the Salmon, Potato and Sweet Onion Breakfast Bake, or get your party going with a Deviled Salmon Skewers appetizer, or really wow your guests with a main course of Sesame-Crusted Salmon Steaks with Wasabi Butter. As with her first three books, Cynthia tells the story of Northwest cuisine-in this case salmon-includes a long list of recipes to choose from and, as always, offers plenty of tips for buying, storing, and cooking salmon. A ""calendar of events"" appears as bonus material. Simple or challenging, fast or project-style, these recipes, helpful hints, and colorful illustrations will have beginner and expert chefs alike experimenting with Cynthia's inventive ideas. Featuring sumptuous watercolor illustrations by Don Barnett, the latest book in the Northwest Homegrown Cookbook Series is a reference that lovers of the Northwest cuisine should not-cannot-be without.
About the Author
Celebrated Northwest chef and food writer Cynthia Nims sets her culinary sights on wild mushrooms for her third book in the successful Northwest Homegrown Cookbook Series (following Crab and Stone Fruit). With as many as fifty edible species of wild mushrooms growing in this ideal habitat, Cynthia finds no shortage of inspiration for Porcini Crostini, Sesame Steak Salad with Soy-Glazed Oyster Mushrooms, Chanterelle and Chicken Pot Pie, and many more.
Divided into four sections, the forty recipes include dishes for any meal, any time of day, and are easily adaptable for cooking with your favorite mushroom variety. Dreamy watercolor illustrations by Seattle artist Don Barnett add a sweep of stylishness to the pages of Wild Mushrooms. With regional history, inspired recipes, information on mycological societies, and a wild mushroom calendar and excursions listing, Cynthia?s latest book continues the tradition of celebrating simple and hearty, yet elegant food from one of the country?s most abundant regions.
