Though this cookbook focuses on the bounty of food grown and produced in the Sunshine State, you don't have to live in Florida to enjoy these delicious meals. The book includes easy-to-follow recipes that allow even beginners to create gourmet meals as well as complete regional Florida menus such as "A Florida Thanksgiving," "Boating Picnic," "Football Tailgate Party," "Miami High Life," and "Key West Fiesta." Learn all about Florida's bounty of ingredients, including how to peel and seed a mango and how to safely handle habanero peppers. Hard-to-resist recipes include jubilant orange creams; crabby stuffed mushrooms; papaya, tomato, and cilantro salad; oyster stew; Key West pork tenderloin; fried green tomatoes; fancy blue crab quiche; and Southern-style pecan pralines. Enjoy the Florida bounty!
