From the Author:

"In my position I travel frequently, all around the world, and am heavily influenced by each region that I visit. Wherever I go, I always keep the Pacific Coast staples in mind. But I am also shaped by my own Croatian heritage, so even my West Coast recipes have a Mediterranean touch. The 'abodanza', or abundance, of ingredients and styles of food to chose from makes me, and you, very lucky.

"One of the greatest advantages to living on the Pacific Coast is the amazing convergence of cultures. The wildly diverse makeup of the Pacific Coast region, long blessed by strong currents of immigration, contributes not only many highly influential Asian cuisines, but also Southwestern spice and the Old World techniques of Europe. Chefs on the coast do well to incorporate all of these, including the fabulous array of fresh local ingredients, to create fusion cuisine that could apply European method to Asian ingredients, or vice versa.

"When thinking of creating a meal, one must think not only of the style and flavor of the dish, but also of the season. When you use only the freshest ingredients available, you have to constantly change your menu, so you can be sure to always have the most varied fare in town. It is part of the joy of cooking to use your region’s bounty to its fullest."

From the Inside Flap:

Chef John Sarich, host of the acclaimed television series, Best of Taste: Flavors of the Pacific Coast, now presents a collection of culinary creations in this, his third cookbook.

John Sarich celebrates live on the Pacific Coast and its amazing convergence of cultures. From Alaska to Mexico, and from the Far East to Australia, the Pacific Coast boasts a wide availability of cooking styles. At the heart of this stunning book is the cultural diversity of flavors. Exemplified in his recipe Seared Sea Scallops with Wasabi Cream, Sarich utilizes a classic Old World technique and spices it with Japanese wasabi to flavor succulent Alaskan scallops. Similarly, the Pacific Rim Style Crab and Vermicelli mixes flavors of Vietnam and Thailand with a Northwest specialty, fresh Dungeness crab.

Best of Taste: Flavors of the Pacific Coast is a collection of over 100 recipes, accentuated with cooking tips and wine notes. John’s innovative approach to matching food and wine reflects his unique culinary background and incredible knowledge of wine. You’ll find his chart, Guide to Pairing Food and Wine, a stimulating resource in planning your own culinary celebrations.
