About this title:

Synopsis: What is Bistro Latino? It's skewered shrimp, marinated in a mixture of smoky chipotle chiles and sweet guava paste, grilled to perfection with juicy chunks of pineapple. It's gazpacho like you've never had it -- a refreshing soup of blackberries, strawberries, and peaches, sparked with a little minced red onion and cilantro. And it's mashed potatoes, kicked up Latin style, whipped together with roasted garlic and black beans.

Bistro Latino is homey, appetite-inspiring food that brings the big, sunny flavors of Latin America -- with a touch of the Mediterranean -- into your kitchen. It's cooking that's familiar -- with a twist.

Bistro Latino is food that is meant to be shared and enjoyed with family or friends. If you're having a get-together, try serving a selection of colorful Bistro Latino cocktails (Pisco Sours,Caipirinha, Mango Mimosas, Passionfruit Batidas) and savory appetizers (Latin Crab Cakes, Spicy Vegetable Empanadas, Tuna Ceviche with Coconut, Goat Cheese and Basil Tamales). Or make your dinner party a family-style affair with Ecuadoran Shrimp and Corn Chowder, Chicken in the Pot, Latin Style, Colombian Pot Roast, or New World Paella. Round out the meal with side dishes like Roasted Corn and Garlic Rice, Potato-Chipotle Gratin, and Mashed Sweet Plantains.

Bistro Latino will give you a whole new vocabulary for everyday cooking.What is Bistro Latino?

Review: Take the flavors and culinary traditions of South America, add the influence of European cuisine, and you have Chef Rafael Palomino's Bistro Latino. As the title suggests, Bistro Latino is an innovative synthesis of European and New World flavors, and it is striking how easily Palomino moves between the cuisines. The lemony seafood salads common to the Mediterranean are replaced with the ceviches of Peru and Colombia. Dishes such as Roast Chicken with Jalapeños and Yuca put a distinct South American twist on traditional French bistro fare. These combinations are natural for Palomino. In his native Colombia, Latin cuisine is in itself a rich brew of indigenous, Iberian, African, Asian, Caribbean, and North American influences. Add to that early apprenticeships in New York and French restaurants, and it's easy to understand the birth of Bistro Latino.

As with traditional bistro cooking, Palomino emphasizes modest, down-to-earth food. However, the similarities stop there. Bold Latin flavor combinations and ingredients transform simple dishes. Fish Baked in Fresh Tangerine Juice and Parsley blend sweet citrus, woodsy mushrooms, and tender whitefish into an entrée teeming with brightness. In fact, the beauty of Bistro Latino is the simplicity. All the recipes are easily prepared at home and require only modest culinary skills. Palomino also does an outstanding job laying out the basics of Latin cooking. The ingredients glossary is extremely helpful to anyone new to the cuisine, and the recipes for basic sauces such as Aji and Hogo, as well as those for salsas and vinaigrettes, are excellent. Bistro Latino is an exciting new approach that guarantees Latin cuisine will never be the same. --Mark O. Howerton
