Charlie Trotter Cooks at Home


From Culinate

Widely acclaimed Chicago chef Trotter has found ways to prepare his popular dishes in the home kitchen, without the culinary obstacles of fine cuisine. His collection of recipes is grounded in timely preparation, basic ingredients, and clear cooking instructions. Paul Elledge’s edgy photo illustrations complement the recipes, many of which look to be refreshingly simple to prepare, but toothsome in their combination of flavors: Butternut Squash Ravioli with Brown Butter-Citrus Vinaigrette, for example, uses wonton skins as a shortcut that many home cooks will appreciate.
