Description

"Breaking down gourmet gastronomy into basic building blocks."

Deconstructing the Dish not only is a guide to making great, gourmet meals, but it also explains all the steps involved in the creation of a plate. David Adjey describes the building blocks that a gourmet chef uses in creating each new dish.

The simple instructions break a plate down into basic principles, providing the home chef with the skills needed to put together a dish the way a master chef does.

Deconstructing the Dish will guide home chefs in the preparation of a sumptuous meal. More than that, it will provide them with the tools needed to understand intrinsically the basis for such dishes as: Bacon wrapped black cod with sweet potato Collard greens and shrimp gumbo Short ribs with black tiger shrimp and black-eyed peas Lamb rack with squash and parsley root spatzle Crispy flat chicken with fajita vegetables and tortilla fries.
