About This Book
Bold. Unfussy. Irresistible. Real.

That’s the kind of food that comes out of Tyler Florence’s kitchen. With a culinary sensibility refined in some of New York’s most high-profile restaurants, and a down-home practicality gained as the cooking guru of Food 911, Tyler cooks food that’s fresh, flavorful, and totally doable. In Tyler Florence’s Real Kitchen, he’ll show you how to cook simple meals that taste amazing, from comfort-food to classics to vibrantly new dishes.

Tyler’s long-awaited first cookbook stays true to his cooking philosophy—use great, simple ingredients and then let the natural flavors speak for themselves. He offers can’t-miss recipes for all the crowd-pleasing dishes that you crave—cold fried chicken, a perfect meatloaf, or drop-dead lasagna. Tyler’s bold, uncomplicated style even makes sophisticated food easy, with recipes like Pan-Roasted Sirloin with Arugula, Sweet Peppers, and Olive Salad or Steamed Mussels with Saffron and Tomato. He’ll show you how to get a great meal from the grocery bag to the table with the least fuss and the most flavor, or how to throw a barbecue with the best burgers (spiced up with horseradish and Havarti cheese) that your friends have ever had. From weekend brunch (including Soft Scrambled Eggs with Salmon and Avocado and an assortment of dim sum) to quick weeknight dinners for two (like Hong Kong Crab Cakes with Baby Bok Choy), and a selection of great party food and cocktails, this is a cookbook you’ll use again and again and rely on for every occasion.

With helpful notes on essential pantry staples and a list of the kitchen equipment you really need, Tyler Florence’s Real Kitchen is a fresh, creative exploration of just how fun (and delicious) your cooking can be.

    Tyler Florence Fresh

    Tyler Florence Fresh
    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.
