Growing up in southern Arizona helped form Chef Ryan Clark's style of cuisine, and a rock solid education at the Culinary Institute of America solidified it. Though his culinary background and training are traditional, his sustainable southwestern farm-to-fork food is anything but. Innovative recipes include Prickly Pear Mojito, Yam and Ginger-Jalapeno Pavé, California Halibut with Sautéed Succotash, Hanger Steak Chimichurri, and Habanero Crème Brûlée. This is seriously delicious food.

In Modern Southwest Cooking, local chef Ryan Clark and local publisher Rio Nuevo have put together a collection of dieter's-resolve-busting recipes featuring ingredients of the Southwest chiles of all kinds, cactus, heritage vegetables, native meat, poultry (and rattlesnake); seafood from the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific. Clark's training is French, but his approach is casual and accessible. He advises on buying locally and sustainably. The book's photos are beautiful and directions are clear. If some of the recipes are more complex than a once-a-week cook can manage, you can go for the simpler ones. I tried the spice-rubbed pork loin with yam and ginger-jalapeño pavé. That, and a few Mexican chocolate chunk cookies: Seriously delicious. --Tucson Weekly
Each featured recipe includes a succinct introduction, a complete list of ingredients, and step-by-step fool-proof instructions that will allow even the most novice of kitchen cooks to turn out professional quality dishes suitable for any and all dining occasions. Modern Southwest Cooking is certain to be an enduringly popular addition to personal, family, and community library cookbook collections. --Midwest Book Review
