Bobby Flay's Bar Americain Cookbook ISBN- 978-0-307-46138-4 The first chapter is Cocktails. Nine refreshing drinks, some are illustrated in clear precise pictures. You can choose a drink from one with blackberries to a drink that you make a mint or cinnamon syrup. If you like both your ice tea and bourbon, then there is a drink for you as well. Now that you have your drink in hand, you can start making your soups and salads. Soups with roasted corn to vidalia onions. Gumbo to Catham Cod-Manhattan Clam Chowder. Pumpkin soup that includes honey and maple syrup. Off to the salads. Ingredients from apples with toasted walnuts to a fried green tomato salad that has trout and roasted beets for a start and top it with the sweet and sour dressing. Blue crab salad with a lemon dressing to a Boston lettuce salad with buttermilk-blue cheese dressing. Next we head off into the sandwich section. A unique grilled cheese sandwich with aged cheddar, goat cheese, bacon and green tomato. Sandwiches with lobster, swordfish and pulled barbecued duck. Unique sauces to make for the sandwiches as well. For the southwest flavors there is a green chile cheeseburger. This burger recipe includes a green chile relish made from poblano, hatch & Serrano chile's and top it with a queso sauce. To the appetizers. The choices here are many. Chips to Johnny cakes. Oysters. Lobsters & crabs oh my! And lets not forget appetizers with shrimp and mussels, tuna and steak. And even an oven baked pizza with double-smoked bacon,caramelized onions and garlic. There are not pictures for every recipe but the pictures that are in the book are mouth watering. For the seafood lovers, this is your chapter. Blackened sea scallops, crispy soft shell crabs, salmon, red snapper and more. Add some of the relishes and sauces such as a black bean sauce, charred tomato salsa or a mango-avocado relish and you are good to go. If you have a taste for poultry you will find recipes for chicken, turkey and duck along with sauces and sides. And meat lovers.... lamb, veal, pork, steak and even venison that includes a red cabbage bread pudding and concord grape sauce to make with it. Pictures so realistic they will have you picking up your steak knife and fork but don't forget your napkin as they are mouth watering as well. I hope you have room for more because here come the side dishes. Potatoes in all kinds of styles, from hash browns and chips to lobster potato salad. And more veggies like peas, kale, corn and asparagus to name a few. Chutney, BBQ baked beans to green chile spoon bread and more.
