Overview
From restaurateur (Centrico) and Food Network star (Chefs vs. City, Chopped, and Heat Seekers) Aaron Sanchez comes his fabulous new cookbook themed around 15 unforgettable Mexican flavor bases.

You've seen him on the Food Network's Chopped, Chefs vs. City, and Heat Seekers. You've savored his lovingly prepared dishes at Centrico in New York City. Now, with Simple Food, Big Flavor, award-winning restaurateur Aaron Sanchez brings the amazing tastes and aromas found in his kitchen to yours.

Aaron Sanchez's passion for food has placed him among the country's leading contemporary Latin chefs. He has earned a premiere spot in the world of culinaria, introducing an enthusiastic national audience to his technique and creativity with modern interpretations of classic Latin cuisine. In Simple Food, Big Flavor, rather than over-whelming readers with complex, intimidating dishes, he starts small, showing how one simple but fabulous "base" recipe can become many fantastic dishes. Take Garlic-Chipotle Love, a blend of roasted garlic, canned chipotles in adobo, cilantro, and lime zest that keeps in the fridge for weeks or in the freezer for months. Once you make it, you're just a few steps away from delicious dishes like Chipotle-Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Bean and Butternut Squash Picadillo, and Mussels with Beer and Garlic-Chipotle Love.

And that's just the beginning. Sanchez features fifteen of these flavor base recipes, including Roasted Tomato Salsa, Cilantro-Cotija Pesto, and homemade Dulce de Leche. He even shares his plan of attack for making the perfect mole and how to team it up with roasted Cornish game hens, turkey enchiladas, and the ultimate crowd pleaser, braised beef short ribs. He then provides detailed yet easy tips for applying each sauce to everyday meals, whether you spread it on hamburgers, turn it into a marinade for easy grilled chicken, or stir in a little oil and lime for salad dressing with a kick.

With his warm and engaging style, Sanchez equips home cooks with the skills and knowledge they need to come up with their own simple, flavorful meals every night of the week. Your kitchen will be en fuego As Sanchez says, your food will go from inspiring smiles and polite nods to igniting ridiculous grins and bear hugs. Enjoy

Restaurant owner and Food Network star Sánchez takes his “incredible flavor memories and distills them into fifteen recipes” for home cooks. Pastes, salsas, purees, pestos, moles, and more are the basis of this collection that presents a main recipe (easily stored in the fridge or freezer) followed by meal suggestions and additional recipes for each one. The “Simple Ways to Use It” sections are bulleted lists offering additional serving ideas. Ingredient notes, tips for storing, and informative headnotes add to the Mexican cooking lessons, and the author’s flexible and realistic attitude in the kitchen—think substituting canned beans for dried, and tomatoes from a tin for fresh —stem from his cooking philosophy that “patience and a little know-how” elevates simple dishes to “spectacular.” Empanadas, ceviches, tacos, and tostadas, along with braised, roasted, and stewed meats, are built from easy-to-prepare main recipes such as salsa verde, cilantro-cotija pesto, and chile colorado sauce. An inspiring and concise take on Mexican cuisine. (Nov.)
