Chef on a Shoestring: More Than 120 Inexpensive Recipes for Great Meals from America's Best Known Chefs Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

You don't have to break the bank to cook restaurant-quality meals!

Here's a sample of the more than 120 delicious and surprisingly economical recipes from America's finest chefs, as featured on the popular Chef on a Shoestring segment of the CBS Saturday Early Show:

Mario Batali's Mushroom and White Bean Bruschetta

Terrance Brennan's Pear and Gorgonzola Salad

Roe Di Bona and Sue Torres's Chilled Avocado and Grapefruit Soup with Chipotle Chile Purée

Sara Moulton's Miniature Pumpkin Soup with Ginger and Toasted Pumpkin Seeds

Bobby Flay's Saffron Risotto with Sautéed Shrimp

Michael Lomonaco's Pan-Roasted Halibut with Spring Vegetables

Alfonso Contrisciani's Pepper-Crusted Turkey "London Broil" with Mushroom Confit

Matthew Lake's Grilled Pork Chops with Black Bean Salsa, Grilled Sweet Potatoes, and Roasted Corn

Linda West Eckhardt's Beef and Tomato Stir-Fry with Whiskey and Black Bean Sauce

John Doherty's Irish Tiramisù

Don Pintabona's Polenta Lemon Cake with Fresh Berries

Erica Miller's Chocolate Banana Terrine

Robert Bruce's Un Deux Trois Quatre Cake

Cooking great meals doesn't require spending a fortune on ingredients. Each week on the CBS Saturday Early Show, a prominent chef is given twenty dollars to create a three-course meal for four. Chef on a Shoestring collects the best of those culinary delights to benefit Share Our Strength, one of the nation's leading antihunger, antipoverty organizations. These recipes, created by some of the most celebrated chefs in the country, may have been produced on a budget but are rich in every other way.

The recipes are organized into convenient categories, such as Finger Foods and Small Plates, Salads, Pasta and Risotto, Poultry, Meats, and Desserts, to allow you to mix and match various courses from different chefs. You can begin a meal with Salmon Corn Cakes from Walter Staib of Philadelphia's historic City Tavern, serve Seared Chicken Breast with Red Onion Vinaigrette from Charlie Palmer of Aureole in New York as your main course, and finish with Beacon restaurant's Waldy Malouf's Best Chocolate Chip Cookies. Or try the Asparagus and Bean Sprout Salad with Dill Pesto from Aquavit's Marcus Samuelsson, Tom Douglas's Crispy Fried Snapper with Chili Ponzu, and Coconut Rice Pudding with Fresh Mango from John Villa. Spice up your favorite burger or grilled chicken with Barbecued Onions from John Schenk of Clementine, and from '21' try Erik Blauberg's Baby Arugula Greens with Watermelon "Croutons" and Caesar Dressing, to jump-start a weeknight dinner.

Illustrated with eight pages of beautiful color photographs, with advice on stocking your pantry, buying in season, shopping on a budget, and avoiding the temptation to be too frugal, Chef on a Shoestring is a unique culinary adventure for taste-conscious, budget-conscious home cooks.
