Just one pan? No problem! You'll need only a single skillet,a roasting pan, or
a Dutch oven to make any of the 100 knockout recipes that have made this team the
hottest culinary duo west of the Rockies.
Today their restaurants
are the toast of Los Angeles, but Jon and Vinny still remember what it was like to
cook with a minimum of space, time, and equipment. And they know that it is the feel-good,
homestyle favorites that win raves from their clients and will make any home cook' s reputation. In Two Dudes, One Pan they show you how to prepare a surprising array
of dishes-from finger foods to sweets and everything in between-using a few simple
pieces of equipment and never more than one at a time.
Just as Jon and Vinny depend
on fewer kitchen tools and gadgets than most cooks, they also believe it's possible
to eat well without spending a fortune, and their varied, deeply flavored food won' t send you running to the gourmet shop in search of an obscure ingredient. For them,
it's all about what you can do with food from the local grocery store. Pick up your
favorite pan and try your hand at dishes like:
Curried Chicken Nuggets with Honey
Mustard and Red Onion Slaw * Sake-Soy Sea Bass with Baby Bok Choy * Spicy Roasted
Cauliflower, Capers, and Parm * Sherried Salmon and Cipollini Onions * Five-Spice
Cornish Hens * Pistachio Tiramis with Sweet Cherry Sauce * Pumpkin Pie Bars
full-color photographs, ingredient alternatives, helpful tips and shortcuts, and
