Description
An incredible collection of recipes just for avocado lovers

If you love avocados, but don't know what to do with them other than serve them with tortilla chips, this is the perfect cookbook for you. With its buttery texture and subtle flavor, the avocado pairs well with meat and seafood, makes a great topping for burgers and salads, and adds a wonderful creaminess to dips, sauces, and even desserts. "Absolutely Avocados" presents delightfully delicious new ways to use avocados in breakfasts, lunches, salads, snacks, and plenty of the ways you haven't even imagined.

But this is more than just a book of avocado recipes; it's also the first cookbook from renowned blogger Gaby Dalkin. Displaying her fresh and simple cooking style--a mix of California casual with a healthy dose of Southwestern flair--Gaby's recipes are ideal for anyone who loves avocados or just scrumptious meals.

  • Features 75 to-die-for recipes like Crab and Avocado Quesadilla and Avocado and Tuna Ceviche
  • The first book by popular food blogger and avocado expert Gaby Dalkin
  • Illustrated with gorgeous full-color photographs from acclaimed food photographer Matt Armendariz
  • Includes an introductory section that describes common varieties of avocado and includes foolproof advice on cutting, storing, and picking ripe avocados at the market

If you love avocados and fresh, delicious meals, this is the ideal cookbook for you. "Absolutely Avocados" serves up a wide range of recipes that get the most of out of this popular, but under-used food.
