It's casual, it's satisfying, and it's the way we want to eat now. Inspired by European corner cafes, the new American bistro fare is defined by fresh ingredients and a preference for locally grown, seasonal items. Sophisticated in its simplicity, featuring ethnic flavors, regional foods, and easy-to-master techniques such as grilling and roasting, this exciting new American cuisine has turned up across the country, from the Union Square Cafe in the east to Cafe Beaujolais in the west. Just as she defined California Cuisine with her classic cookbook The Cuisine of California, Worthington brings the newest sensation in American cooking into home kitchens everywhere with American Bistro. Rustic and sophisticated, earthy and eclectic, American Bistro melds European traditions with homegrown innovation to create the signature cuisine of America
