Editorial Reviews

Portale, chef and co-owner of New York's acclaimed Gotham Bar and Grill, says he thinks there are really more than just four seasons to the year, and at the restaurant he revises his menu at the start of each month to reflect that belief. The recipes in this successor to Portale's Gotham Bar and Grill Cookbook are organized by month, starting with May, which he refers to as "The Big Bang of the Culinary Year" and celebrates with such seasonal dishes as Grilled Soft-Shell Crabs with Asparagus and Atlantic Salmon with Morels, Ramps, and Sweet Peas. Each month has its own identity the September chapter, for example, features simpler dishes, "Recipes for Busy Times," while July is for "Birthdays and Barbecues." Most recipes include useful advance preparation tips and "flavor-building" suggestions for taking the dish a step further, and there are gorgeous color photographs throughout. Sure to be popular, this is recommended for most collections. [Main Selection of The Good Cook.] Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
