When it comes to food cities, Miami is one to take seriously. It is a colorful culinary tapestry of local and international food traditions with emerging new talents and James Beard-recognized chefs setting the bar for adventurous, experimental, and exciting cuisine. Miami Cooks by Sara Liss celebrates this wonderfully unique food culture with seventy-five recipes by thirty-five of the city's leading chefs and mixologists. Sure, Miami is the Cuban food capital of America, but it also home to so many other cuisines--Peruvian, Venezuelan, Puerto Rican, Haitian, Jamaican--that tempt the palate. From savory duck carnitas tacos to a crab-crusted ribeye steak to a decadent caramelized strawberry (and not to mention, an array of refreshing cocktails), this book boasts recipes all designed for home cooks of all skill levels.
