9780307591371: Michael's Genuine Food: Down-to-Earth Cooking for People Who Love to Eat

JAMES BEARD AWARD–WINNING CHEF Michael Schwartz put Miami’s Design District on the culinary map when he opened his restaurant, Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink, in 2007. In a town where food and cocktails are as much a part of the pulse as tans and nightclubs, Michael’s Genuine strikes a very different note. Reviving the city’s dining scene from an overabundance of “Floribbean” cuisine, the restaurant quickly won national praise for its superlative yet unpretentious fare, with Frank Bruni of the New York Times naming it one of the country’s top ten best new restaurants. In his first cookbook, Michael Schwartz shares his approachable, sought-after recipes with home cooks everywhere.

Michael focuses on sourcing exceptional ingredients and treating them properly—which usually means simply. A salad truly becomes a meal, such as BLT Salad with Maple-Cured Bacon, as do pizzas, pastas, soups, and sandwiches. Snacks aren’t precious bits on toothpicks but hearty, eat-with-your-hands fare that can be mixed and matched, such as Caramelized Onion Dip with Thick-Cut Potato Chips and Crispy Polenta Fries with Spicy Ketchup. Side dishes are adventurous accompaniments that hold up mightily on their own, while the boldly flavored main dishes—from Grilled Wild Salmon Steak with Fennel Hash and Sweet Onion Sauce to Grilled Leg of Lamb with Salsa Verde—come in two sizes: large and extra large, for serving family-style at the table. From simple desserts that riff on classic childhood favorites and flavors, including Banana Toffee Panini, to Michael’s favorite drinks, you’ll have everything you need for the perfect dinner at home.

With seventy full-color photographs and abundant ingredient tips to help make the most of what’s freshest at the market, Michael’s Genuine Food is a guide you’ll return to time and time again for meals that will slip everyone into a state of genuine contentment.

"Cooking from Michael's Genuine Food is like getting a private master class in the art of eating well. Michael effortlessly pulls back the curtain on pretense and pomp to reveal recipe after recipe of satisfying food. His approach to food is warm, casual, and—well—always genuine." --Gail Simmons

"Michael's food is honest, his flavors bold, and his approach to sourcing ingredients thoroughly modern." --Tom Colicchio

"The food at Michael’s restaurant is always a delicious treat. Now with this wonderful book we can all have it at home. Yummy!" --Maida Heatter

"The recipes featured in Michael’s cookbook are full of a sunny Florida spirit, and are the kinds of dishes I love to eat with friends. They are honest, ingredient-driven, and full of flavor." --Daniel Boulud

"Michael Schwartz is truly one of the greatest American chefs of our day.  My favorite part of trips to Miami isn't the beach or the nightlife; it's my meal at Michael's Genuine. I can't wait to make his Roasted Sweet Onions, BLT Salad, and Slow-Roasted Short Ribs with Romesco Sauce--my mouth is watering just thinking about them!" --Katie Lee
