While traveling the globe as the host of Food Network's hit TV shows Tyler's Ultimate and Food 911, Tyler Florence developed a unique perspective on how Americans like to eat and cook today--and on how to help them with their daily cooking challenges. In Eat This Book, Tyler draws inspiration from kitchens around the world to enliven America's favorite foods in more than 150 new real kitchen recipes for everyday occasions. Now you can wake up tired weeknight chicken with the zing of North African spices. Turn Sunday's same old spaghetti dinner into an authentic Italian abbondanza with Pappardelle Bolognese and Veal Saltimbocca alla Romana. Hit a home run on game day with Fresh Tortilla Chips, Guacamole, and Farmstand Salsa.

Tyler Florence does updated comfort food like no one else, but comfort food's never been updated like this. Join him as he perfects, simplifies, and totally re-invents your favorite dishes in surprising, spectacular ways. Have you ever wondered which cheese, exactly, will make the stretchiest, cheesiest mac and cheese? Or if you can make Hollandaise sauce without fear, a double boiler, or even a whisk? Or if, instead of having to choose between onion rings or French fries, you can make onion rings crusted with French fries? Tyler Florence has. These are the kinds of questions he obsesses over when he thinks about how to make cooking both easier and more exciting. For years, while shuttling between his restaurants and TV shoots, Tyler's kept a notebook of ideas to push his own recipes out of their comfort zone. Now, for the first time in his career, he's established a culinary lab where he can dive deep into the hows, whys, and why-nots of his cooking. He brings you Inside the Test Kitchen to see his experiments, the wins and the fails, and of course, the delicious, foolproof, and surprising recipes that come out of it. Go from tricks to make basics brilliant--like saucing Double-Creamed Spinach with pureed spinach, or using boiling-hot brine to make a Super-Crisp Roast Chicken-- to simpler ways to make the classics, like a nearly no-stir Time Saver Risotto and a Three-Minute Hollandaise, to pure reinvention, like Fronion Rings and almost-instant Modern Burger Buns. Through these 120 recipes, Tyler invites you to question culinary sacred cows, push your skills to the next level, and make food more delicious than they would have thought possible.
Tyler turns ingredients into superstars in Tyler Florence Fresh, a new look at easy and sophisticated cuisine. Tyler Florence shows off his bold side with a celebration of fresh everyday foods prepared in innovative and delicious ways. Using each fresh ingredient as a launching pad, Tyler builds innovative dishes flavor by flavor, showing you how to put easy-to-find ingredients to work in unexpected ways. Tyler's approach is grounded in the alchemy of ingredients, giving each recipe a twist by casting an unexpectedly delicious ingredient as its superhero. For those ingredients that call out to be celebrated--the first bunch of spring asparagus or the freshest scallops at the fish market--Tyler's recipes are chances for each flavor to stand out. Ripe summer blueberries transform a frisée salad when tossed with whipped blue cheese and candied pecans; fresh basil makes for a delicious ice cream paired with honey, balsamic vinegar, and sliced figs; winter limes and oranges are a zesty side for smoke-roasted chicken. Contrast is key, as Tyler plays with sweet, sour, tangy, tart, and spicy flavors to surprise the palate. Once you've tasted halibut with watermelon, peaches with prosciutto, and zucchini with grapefruit, you'll never look at your market the same way again. Filled with recipes that will surprise and delight everyone at your table, Tyler Florence Fresh is Tyler's most showstopping, delicious book yet.
