Publishers Text

Tommy Bahama is immersed in the casual vibe so associated with California and the flavors of a tranquil lifestyle. California’s culinary influence comes from a sheer abundance of local fruits and vegetables such as avocado, almonds and citrus. Tommy Bahama has previously explored new takes on the state’s signature dishes like the Caesar salad, warm goat cheese and the famous Prime Rib French Dip sandwich. Then there are California’s countless wineries, breweries and distilleries, contributing to the restaurants’ popular cocktails and wine pairings. Tommy Bahama also seizes upon California’s year round sunshine which encourages fluid indoor/outdoor spaces and a welcoming nature that calls Mexican, Chinese, Japanese and Southeast Asian flavors its own.

Containing hundreds of mouth-watering fare, Flavors of California includes imagery, storytelling and tips to create new soon-to-be favorites and signature dishes alike. The casual reader can browse the rich photography and highlights of the region. Appetizer highlights include Pulled Pork Quesadillas and Grilled Oysters with Sriracha-Lime Butter. There are hearty salad selections such as Marinated Steak Salad with Grilled Potatoes and Shiitake Chips and full-bodied soups including chowder and minestrone. Main courses of duck, beef, chicken and seafood are presented with true West Coast flair. To further intrigue taste buds, there are also exquisite cocktail recipes and desserts applauding the state’s love affair with chocolate and local ingredients such as Meyer Lemons.
