Nestled in New York's cutting-edge Flatiron district, Pamela Morgan's catering and carry-out shop, Flavors, is a runaway sensation. Famous for its signature Market Table centerpiece, a grand buffet with fifteen different seasonal dishes every day, Flavors has become a favorite caterer to the likes of Martha Stewart as well as countless other New York gourmands. Now, Morgan and her acclaimed cookbook co-author, Michael McLaughlin--who met while they were working at the Silver Palate--have distilled the essence of Flavors for the home cook. Food is amazingcooking is love, Morgan says, giving a Mediterranean twist to her simple, gutsy cuisine. From dips to desserts, from her famous Wheatberry Salad to Pernod-Scented Artichokes, she juggles flavors that are big, bold, unusual, and above all delicious. Ready-to-go recipes--with tips on shopping, storage, presentation, variations, seasonal flavors, professional techniques, and the true history of favorite classic dishes--are vividly set off by color photographs and a cutting-edge look.
