    Book Description
    From Publishers Weekly
    Five years after publishing Norman's New World Cuisine, the chef at Florida's acclaimed Norman's restaurant turns in another collection of signature fusion recipes. The selections provide an introduction to his unique blend of Caribbean, Asian and Latin and North American cooking, ranging from tapas and soups through fish and meats to basic pantry preparations and cocktails. Van Aken was not trained in a culinary school and his preparations steer clear of jargon or complex techniques; specialized ingredients are seldom more exotic than scotch bonnet chiles, tomatillos or jicama (which, nowadays, are widely available). That said, he does offer such recipes as Savory Chicken Stew with a Corn Crust and Deviled Lobster, which are straightforward but have long ingredient lists and require time and careful attention to execute correctly. Combined with Van Aken's many thoughtful sidebars and notations, the sophistication of these recipes make this a treat for serious home cooks.

From the African-influenced Creole cuisines of Cuba, Puerto Rico, and Jamaica to South American flavors from Brazil, Peru, and Argentina to the distinct tastes of Mexico, Van Aken works his particular magic on this luscious cornucopia and emerges with a wealth of brilliant recipes, such as the exquisite Masa-Crusted Chicken with Piquillo Peppers, Avocado Butter, and Greens in Grapefruit-Honey Vinaigrette.

    Well known in the culinary world for his passion and genius, Norman Van Aken has earned a reputation for innovation and artistry. Armed with his signature recipes, employing a cast of rich ingredients in inventive combinations, anyone can masterfully harness the fire-and flare of Latin American cuisine.
