The book is called Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill Cookbook and it is full of wonderful recipes including the story of how The Mesa Grill restaurant helped to launch him into star status.
As quoted in the Boston Herald:
“I study a lot about the tradition of Mexican and Southwestern food because I think it’s important to understand the ingredients and respect the ingredients and how you utilize them,â€ said Flay during a recent publicity stopover in Boston. “Then, what I try to do is bring in American ingredients from other regions that help to balance out those ingredients.â€
And I have to ask, how yummy does this sound?
Grilled Asparagus and Goat Cheese Quesadillas with Tomato Jam and Cilantro Yogurt.
Given that it IS nearly Thanksgiving, we’re all thinking about the upcoming Holiday Season and this would make a *fine* gift for any one on your list who likes to cook. It’s on my list for Santa, for sure!
