Bistro Latino: Home Cooking Fired up with the Flavors of Latin Americaby Rafael Palomino, Julia Moskin, Pam Hoenig (Editor)
What is Bistro Latino? It's skewered shrimp, marinated in a mixture of smoky chipotle chiles and sweet guava paste, grilled to perfection with juicy chunks of pineapple. It's gazpacho like you've never had it -- a refreshing soup of blackberries, strawberries, and peaches, sparked with a little minced red onion and cilantro. And it's mashed potatoes, kicked up Latin style, whipped together with roasted garlic and black beans.
Bistro Latino is homey, appetite-inspiring food that brings the big, sunny flavors of Latin America -- with a touch of the Mediterranean -- into your kitchen. It's cooking that's familiar -- with a twist.
Bistro Latino is food that is meant to be shared and enjoyed with family or friends. If you're having a get-together, try serving a selection of colorful Bistro Latino cocktails (Pisco Sours,Caipirinha, Mango Mimosas, Passionfruit Batidas) and savory appetizers (Latin Crab Cakes, Spicy Vegetable Empanadas, Tuna Ceviche with Coconut, Goat Cheese and Basil Tamales). Or make your dinner party a family-style affair with Ecuadoran Shrimp and Corn Chowder, Chicken in the Pot, Latin Style, Colombian Pot Roast, or New World Paella. Round out the meal with side dishes like Roasted Corn and Garlic Rice, Potato-Chipotle Gratin, and Mashed Sweet Plantains.
Bistro Latino will give you a whole new vocabulary for everyday cooking.
