This superb new edition of a classic cookbook proves that California cooking isn't about living in California; it's about appreciating seasonal produce, bold flavors, and adventurous ingredient combinations. Now Diane Rossen Worthington revisits her signature recipes and shares some great new discoveries, including Arroz con Pollo, a Mexican dish updated with a hint of mint, an incredible macaroni and cheese with caramelized leeks and prosciutto, and the homey goodness of Almond Shortcake with Roasted Blueberry Compote. The result is a book packed with nearly 200 innovative and naturally healthy dishes. Featured sidebars highlight new trends in California cuisine such as artisan baking, cheese-making, and olive oil production. And with terrific two-color illustrations by Michael Schwab, The New California Cook will make cooking California style as breezy as the cuisine itself.
