Mention Philadelphia and food in the same sentence and most people think of cheesesteaks, hoagies, or soft pretzels. Philadelphia Flavor: Restaurant Recipes from the City and the Suburbs definitively and deliciously dispels that notion. Tailored for the home cook, the 250 recipes in Philadelphia Flavor come from 120 of Philadelphia's best restaurants, including Le Bec-Fin, Four Seasons, Fork, Deux Cheminées, Dock Street, Jack's Firehouse, Philippe on Locust, and City Tavern. Recipes -- each mom-approved so that even novice cooks will have kitchen confidence -- run from simple to sophisticated, from classic to cutting-edge, from deli to dim sum. The result is a hands-on cookbook that assembles emerging culinary trends and traditional Philly homestyle dishes into a highly original collection. For bon vivants more inclined to make a reservation than a rack of lamb, Philadelphia Flavor offers Restaurant Profiles which allow readers to meet the chefs, sample the menus, and get the best tables in the houses. There are also personal chef reflections, cooking hints, shopping resources, and nifty trivia. Expert sommeliers, including nationally known Greg Moore, take the guess work out of what wine to serve by matching Philadelphia Flavor recipes with the perfect vintage. Prefer beer? We've got some pairing suggestions for ale as well.

From the Author:

In a 1999 magazine article, John Mariani, one of the nation's top food writers, called the Philadelphia restaurant scene amazing. He wrote, ...with so much that's now new and good, it may take you several trips to savor all Philly has to offer. I think the same applies to cookbooks. Several volumes may be needed in order to capture, record, and savor all the wonderful recipes our area chefs have to offer. After all, a city like Philadelphia is always in transition: new restaurants open; chefs bop around; food trends change. Happily, what doesn't change is the talent, commitment, and generosity of Delaware Valley chefs and restaurateurs. And what generosity! Over 100 chefs contributed recipes to Philadelphia Flavor! The large variety of recipes received provides a cook's tour of dishes perfect for family meals, splashy cocktail parties, midday munches, elegant entertaining, and quick-day meals. Each is organized and mom-tested so that even novice cooks will have kitchen confidence. The recipes will bring you great results but remember: recipes are guidelines, jumping off points for creative cooking. Feel free to experiment; to incorporate seasonal products as much as possible; to improvise and have fun! But Philadelphia Flavor is more than just a collection of recipes. It is a tool for selecting your next Philadelphia-area dining destination, a reference for wine and food pairing, a resource guide for ingredients and kitchen supplies, and, hopefully, a source of inspiration. I sincerely hope that you will USE this book. My own favorite cookbooks look like well-loved toys: tattered, stained, food encrusted. If I visit your kitchen, I'd love to find Philadelphia Flavor sporting food smudges and a broken spine. That would be amazing. Best regards, Connie Correia Fisher
