Devoted to highly imaginative dishes that are simple to prepare, The New American Kitchen is for every cook in search of new ideas. Based on Judie Geise's Northwest Kitchen cookbook - a regional favorite inspired in part by the abundance of Seattle's famous Pike Place Market - The New American Kitchen has been expanded for a nation of food lovers now enjoying the return of outdoor green markets, old-fashioned farm markets, and small specialty retailers across the country. Geise bases her work on the belief that the American palate is one of the most sophisticated in the world. Ours is a cultural stew-pot that embraces the best of a dozen ethnic traditions and adapts them to the realities of the American lifestyle. Even as Geise defines a diverse and eclectic American cuisine, she combines it with an approach to cooking whose principles are few and simple: use the best ingredients from the wonderful array produced in this country, keep cooking techniques uncomplicated and straightforward, and don't get trapped in the kitchen. Drawing on her many years of experience as a buyer in the retail specialty food business, Geise emphasizes choosing high quality, local ingredients and making the most of them.
