Description

Amuse-bouche are today what hors d'oeuvres were to America in the 1950s: a relatively unknown feature of French culinary tradition that, once introduced, immediately became standard fare. Chefs at many fine restaurants offer guests an amuse-bouche, a bite-sized treat that excites the tongue and delights the eye, before the meal is served. Nobody does it better than the celebrated executive chef/partner of Chicago's Tru, Rick Tramonto. This book offers an array of recipes, from elegant and sophisticated to casual and surprising--but always exquisite--that will inspire home cooks to share these culinary jewels with their guests.--From publisher description.
