Review:

Daniel Orr is one of my favorite chefs anywhere in the world. His food is delicious and so creatively prepared. I like it that he uses locally loved and grown ingredients. This cookbook will bring much-needed 'paradise' to my kitchen and I hope it will to yours as well. (Sylvia McNair, 2-time Grammy award winner)

Paradise Kitchen is Daniel’s ode to cooking in the Caribbean. The recipes reflect the easy going and vivid life style of island days. Daniel’s ability to match familiar tropical ingredients and straightforward technique makes his Caribbean cook book a delight to read. Be sure to bring paradise into your kitchen. (Allen Susser Author of New World Cuisine and Cookery)

My mode of escape from the stressful kitchen has been to put my head inside the ice machine. Whiffs of chlorine bring me back to the over chlorinated pool at my high school. A simpler stress free time. Ah, to be as fortunate as Daniel and leave his stressful New York kitchen and discover a culinary paradise! A little better than my ice machine. This book brings amazing flavors, colors and textures into your home. Complex flavors made simple. Sit back and relax and enjoy the vacation. (Paul Kahan Owner/Executive Chef of Blackbird, avec, The Publican and Big Star in Chicago)

Chef Daniel's modern take on classics have a way of keeping tradition but moving us into a more contemporary style, making these tropical flavors more familiar and approachable. This book is one that can go from coffee table to kitchen. That's the way all cookbooks should be! (Chef Douglas Rodriguez)

Paradise Kitchen is a both a reminder and an inspiration of what made me fall in love with this kind of cooking! Chef Daniel Orr won me over in the past with his solid techniques, ‘steady as she goes’ language and balanced perspective in his cookbooks and teaching. With Paradise Kitchen he brings us to a magical place and then turns loose the secrets on how we can make our kitchens a tropical and (shhh!) healthful paradise. Even though I have been a life-long practitioner of this kind of cooking I kept turning the pages and adding markers to things I will make in my Key West kitchen soon! Thanks for another view and the dreamy tastes of Paradise! (Norman Van Aken author of New World Kitchen, A Feast of Sunlight, and The Great Tropical Fruit Posters)

Fly Away
How I miss the Island sunrise,
It puts a sparkle in my eyes,
Even though I fly beyond the blue skies,
There's a part of me that's there,
Looking out, toward the Southern skies,
Reaching out, to touch the moving tide,
Passing by, across the bay,
Sometimes it seems that I could fly away, fly away.
When I wrote that song, I had never met Chef Dan. But after spending the time that we had together down on the beach on Anguilla, I think his food sings this song. (Bankie Banx Caribbean Reggae and folk Artist, creator of Moonsplash Music Festival)
