As in most families, Cat goes to classic favorites over and over, but updates them with new flavors to keep the meals both interesting and family friendly. The end result is recipes that please both adults and children. This is a cookbook that cooks will reach for over and over, virtually cooking their way through from beginning to end. Highlights (so far): Chicken Soup with Coconut, Fresh Basil and Chiles, which is great paired with Cilantro Slaw with Sauteed Garlic; and Sweet Potato Clam Chowder with Bacon, served with Corn Bread. Best of all, Cat shows cooks that they can take steps to update their own families' favorites and make them new and fresh.
I prepared a romantic dinner for two centered around Cat's recipe for Fettuccine with Scallops, Red Pepper and Lime and it was a delight to the palate.
Cat Cora's Classics with a Twist is a book I intend to purchase for several friends and family members. I highly recommend this for anyone who enjoys cooking or wants to learn from a master.
