Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Dispelling the stereotype of Florida as a Disney void or geriatric Levittown, Voltz ( Barbecued Ribs and Other Great Feeds ) and Stuart, southerners both, offer an entertaining overview of a cuisine that has ``more ethnic diversity than any in America, and possibly the world.'' Dividing Florida into six regions, they illustrate the character of each through recipes and vignettes. Interspersed between instructions for the Spanish-, French- and African American-influenced foods of the Panhandle, like boiled peanuts and smothered quail, are tales of Gulf Coast oysters and cockfighting in Pensacola. Like all cookbooks consorting with native kitchens and restaurants, this book is a voyeur's delight. Its recipes tickle readers with imaginary viewings of local legendary feats--building the titanic Greek salad at the Louis Pappas Restaurant in Tarpon Springs--and also treat us to the more homespun: throwing together a mess of pineapple coleslaw at barbecues for Florida rodeo riders. Although the book lacks the singular voice that could imbue this kind of collection with emotional meaning, its precision and comprehensiveness make it a valuable historical document, reminiscent of the WPA guides of the 1930s.

Rum Spanish Flan with Caramelized Oranges
Makes 8 to 10 servings

There's no contest for the top dessert of Spanish Florida: baked caramel custard unmolded to show its golden crown. The rule in a Spanish kitchen that you can't use too many eggs makes a flan that stands up handsomely, and is easier to work with than a crème caramel, which may be so creamy that it relaxes on the plate. Nuns in the first mission in St. Augustine probably brought this style of dessert to Florida almost 450 years ago. Latter-day Hispanics brough their versions from the Caribbean and Europe. A Florida flan has a velvety texture and can be cut in pretty slices. The caramelized oranges with it are a new wrinkle, and a good one. Flan usually is served as is with a bit of the caramel spooned over it.

Custard
1 2/3 cups sugar
3 tablespoons water
8 large eggs Pinch salt
2 12-ounce cans evaporated milk
2 tablespoons dark rum

Caramelized Oranges
1 large orange, peeled and sliced 1/4 inch thick
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup water
1 tablespoon dark rum

Butter a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. Place the 2/3 cup sugar in a large heavy skillet and stir over moderate heat until it turns golden. Work out any lumps, taking care not to let the sugar burn. Stir in the water with a long-handled spoon (the hot syrup will splatter). Cook, stirring, a minute or two, until blended. Pour into the prepared loaf pan, tilt the pan to coat the sides and bottom, and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Place a baking dish large enough to hold the loaf pan in the oven. Pour hot water to a depth of 1/2 inch into the baking dish. In a medium-size bowl, beat the eggs with the remaining 1 cup sugar until blended. Add the salt and stir in the undiluted evaporated milk and the rum. Mix will and pour over the caramel in the loaf pan. Place the loaf pan in the baking dish with the water in the oven. Bake 1 1/2 hours, or until a table knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove the pan from the water bath and cool the custard, then chill it overnight or for at least 8 hours.

Meanwhile, prepare the oranges. Cut the orange slices crosswise into half circles. Place the sugar and water in a large heavy skillet. Cook and stir over moderate heat until golden brown. Add the oranges to the hot caramel. Using tongs or a spatula, turn to coat them with the caramel. If the caramel sticks, stir in a bit more water. Sprinkle with the rum and cool the mixture.

To turn out the flan, loosen it around the edges with a thin-bladed knife, invert a platter over the pan, and invert it quickly, so as not to lose any of the caramel; lift off the loaf pan. Garnish the platter with the caramelized oranges or pass them seperately. Slice the flan to serve. Refrigerate any leftovers and serve within a day or two.
