Fill in the information below, and you’ll be entered to win a copy of American Flavor by Andrew Carmellini with Gwen Hyman (Ecco, 2011).
Note: You can enter one time per e-mail address per day. Deadline is noon (12 p.m.) ET 12.14.11.
Andrew Carmellini, two-time James Beard Award winner and executive chef–owner of not one but two New York City restaurants (Locanda Verde and The Dutch), takes readers and home cooks on a crazy-quilt tour through the ingredients and flavors that combine to create what we can reasonably call American cuisine. Of course we all know that “American” includes a variety of ethnic influences, which is why you’ll find recipes for Pozole and Pierogies mixed in with Carmellini’s take on Fried Chicken, Hoppin’ John, and Root Beer Cake.
We’re definitely seduced by the unique offerings, all gorgeously photographed, and equally entertained by the true-life tales Carmellini shares. We think everyone should have a copy of this book. But for now, may we point you to some dishes that we think embrace the same spirit?
