Publishers Text

From one of America's most innovative and accomplished chefs, a hugely original cookbook for everyday meals and entertaining.

Over the course of his stellar career, David Burke--executive chef and co-owner of David Burke and Donatella in New York--has created the most imaginative and delicious updates of classic American cuisine. Now he makes it easy for the home cook to perfect the classics and then move on to more elaborate contemporary dishes. In addition, he includes Second-Day Dishes-- glorious leftovers employing many of the same ingredients as the originals.

Here's how it works: classic Shrimp Scampi leads to contemporary Sauteed Shrimp with Spinach Lasagna Roll and Crisp Spinach, which can be transformed finally into the second-day Shrimp Fried Rice and Sausage. Chef's Salad Bowl is updated into Chef's Salad Bruschetta for the second day. New York Cheesecake leads to Grand Marnier Cheesecake Souffles, which gives rise, on the second day, to Coconut Cheesecake Beignets with Red Fruit Sorbet and Berries.

From appetizers to desserts, for breakfast, lunch and dinner--117 delectable recipes (including Titanic Toast, Oh My Cod!, Chocolate Chip UFOs, and many more of Burke's signature whimsical creations)--an irresistible cookbook.
