ZING! New Mediterranean Cuisine Bold, Balanced, Simple & Savory Cookbook by Gorji

download (24)

Chef Gorji was taught how to cook by his Grandmother, who believed all children need to learn how to cook for the family. She was firm about teaching the use of flavor ratios as basic tools.

I love the layout of this book. He spends a few pages explaining his history and his love for cooking, along with plenty of colorful photos.

Then, he spends time explaining flavor building blocks, along with photos. This is useful later in the cookbook when you get to the recipes, because then you actually understand why you are using pure olive oil instead of extra virgin.

He also gives you very useful cooking techniques, which includes the handling of pasta, and cooking several dishes at the same time.

The rest of the cookbook is full of easy to understand instructions, along with great photos.

These sections include:







and a few extras

At my house we made the Spinach and Yogurt dip, and used it as a topping for steak, which made it more flavorful and mouthwatering.

Gorji is the back-to-back Texas State Cookoff Champion and he has been published nationally. His restaurant, Canary By Gorji, is in North Dallas, and every day he stops at farmers markets and local specialty stores in search for the freshest ingredients.

His food is described as Mediterranean with Texas Twists.

I am looking forward to trying more of these tasty recipes.
