His endlessly imaginative cuisine delights countless diners at his world-renowned California restaurants: Spago, Chinois on Main, Postrio, Eureka, and his latest, Granita. Now, Adventures in the Kitchen offers over 175 great new recipes that enable food lovers to recreate Puck's wonderful dishes at home. --Whether preparing food for two or for twenty, cooks will discover here refreshingly innovative dishes combining cuisines and techniques from the Orient, Italy, and France from which Puck has brilliantly created a tempting new American cuisine. Each recipe expresses Puck's passion for fresh ingredients, simple and elegant presentation, and, most of all, his joyful and exciting approach to food. The emphasis is on lighter, more healthful dishes featuring fish, poultry, and vegetables, often grilled or roasted. --Begin your adventure with one of Puck's appetizers, such as Sauteed Crabcakes with Sweet Red Pepper Sauce or Sizzling Calamari Salad with Potato Strings. Try some of the pizzas and pastas that Puck has made famous, such as Spicy Scallop Pizza, Spicy Chicken Pizza, or Duck Ravioli with Red Pepper Sauce. Exquisite main dishes include Seared Tuna Steak au Poivre, Grilled Swordfish with Tomatillo Vinaigrette, and Chinois Roasted Squab on Pan-fried Noodles with Spicy Mushroom Sauce. To accompany these delights, try one of Puck's vegetable dishes, perhaps Sauteed Baby Vegetables or Black Bean Ragout. And for a dazzling finale, whip up one of over two dozen mouth-watering desserts, including Pumpkin Pie with Cranberry Marmalade, Cinnamon Ice Cream, or Whiskey Fudge Cake. If you still have room for breakfast the next morning, Puck's incomparable Granola and his Poached Egg on Sausage Patty with Spicy Salsa make delicious starters. And to make any dish sparkle, try a recipe from the Dressings, Sauces, and Condiments chapter, such as Spicy CinnamonChili Paste or Spago House Salad Dressing."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
