High-spirited, egalitarian, and eclectic describe aspects of the California Pizza Kitchen style. In addition to the melange of distinctive ingredients one finds on this restaurant chain's pizza menus, other appealing victuals are
featured. The newest effort by restaurateurs Flax and Rosenfield presents adventurous ways of preparing popular ethnic foods, such as spring rolls that meld teriyaki chicken with tortillas and Thai satay sauce. Spaghetti is transformed by a dousing of
Kung Pao sauce for a spicy twist on an Italian theme. Creative appetizers, pastas, salads, soups, and sandwiches are accompanied by a handful of delectable desserts. Employees of the restaurant chain contribute commentary here and there to enhance this,
the California Pizza Kitchen's second cookbook. Alice Joyce
About the Author
Larry Flax and Rick Rosenfield, co-founders of California Pizza Kitchen, were friends and law partners before they opened the first CPK in Beverly Hills in 1985. The
chain now includes more than eighty-five restaurants nationwide.
At California Pizza Kitchen restaurants across the country, many of the favorite dishes (and most-requested recipes) are not the pizzas! Customers keep coming
back for the boldly flavored pastas, soups, salads, and side dishes. The follow-up to the bestselling California Pizza Kitchen Cookbook, this new cookbook serves CPK customers just what they ordered -- secret restaurant recipes, never available before.
With gorgeous color photographs of the finished dishes throughout the book, CPK fans will be tempted by recipes for Oriental Chicken Salad, Spinach Artichoke Dip, and Kung Pao Spaghetti, to name just a few.
The new cookbook will include stories
and anecdotes from CPK employees from around the country about favorite recipes, customers, and more. In the generous spirit they're best known for, CPK owners Larry Flax and Rick Rosenfield will donate all royalties and proceeds from sales of the book
in the restaurants to children's charities.
Just like the first CPK cookbook, expect Pasta, Salads, Soups, and Sides to be one of the hottest cookbooks of the year. The CPK chain of restaurants is bigger than ever, and thi5 new hook will be
published in the cool California style that has made the first book and the restaurants themselves so popular.
