Food Network star Tyler Florence is famous for championing simplicity, freshness, and culinary honesty in cooking. Now, after more than a decade spent tracking down some of the world's most flavorful recipes (and debunking a generation of novice chefs' culinary fears), Tyler brings it all back home to celebrate the pleasures of cooking with wholesome, local ingredients.His easy yet toothsome recipes exemplify the message that restaurant chefs from coast to coast have embraced: Local foods, cooked in season and prepared simply but with care and thought, are the best meals you can eat anywhere.
In Tyler Florence Family Meals, Tyler recounts the journey that brought him from the home cooking he grew up loving to the "haute-homey" restaurant cuisine that first won him culinary acclaim, to the pleasures of the world's great cuisine as showcased on his Food Network shows, and ultimately back to his roots as he prepares to open a restaurant while raising a family of young children. He speaks with his signature casual charm about how they can improve their cooking and eating habits to bring about real changes in their health and in their attitude toward food.
Better than any other chef at work today, Tyler knows what people want to eat and how to help them achieve spectacular results without stress or strife. With this all-new collection of bold and exciting recipes, any cook can rid herself of her culinary fears and discover why, when it comes to fine dining, there is no place like home.
