Synopsis: Blending science and Old World "hot and cold" theories, chef Gorji details unexpected ways to combine ingredients. Chef Gorgi won the Texas Steak Cook-off Championship twice with his take on steak with pomegranates! Pure olive oil. Lots of limes. Few batters, coatings, or rubs. No tahini in that hummus. Instead, an imaginative, personal, and highly memorable take on enhancing natural flavors. With reader-friendly, easy to follow recipes, this cookbook is a collection of his signature dishes that have garnered critical acclaim at his restaurant Canary By Gorji in Dallas, Texas.
Critique: Spiral bound, this impressive compendium showcasing Mediterranean cuisine is a true gourmet's delight. The 'kitchen cook friendly' recipes range from Gorji's Crispy Skillet Pizza; Escargot with Pomodoro; Celery Root with Carrots & Fresh Mint; and Striped Marlin with Sauteed or Grilled Rhubarb; to Duck Breat & Plum Sauce; Pan-Seared Filet Medallions; Wild Boar, Gnocchi Gorgonzola & Tomato; and Champoome (a light and fresh champagne and pomegranate with strawberry). Profusely and beautifully illustrated throughout in full color, "Zing! By Gorji" is a unique, sophisticated, and enthusiastically recommended addition to personal, professional, and community library cookbook collections.
