Jim Coleman's Flavors 
In his new cookbook, Jim Coleman's Flavors, Jim Coleman showcases the melting pot of American cooking, with the local flavors and cuisines of each region. As a companion to his national public television series, Flavors of America, this cookbook includes recipes featured on the show, along with recipes from his national public radio program, A Chef's Table.

Organized by course, the 170 recipes in Jim Coleman's Flavors, along with sixteen pages of color photography spotlight the rich diversity of America's regional culinary themes and Coleman's far-flung travels. Barbecued Spice-Rubbed Chicken with Chickeria Barbecue Sauce comes from Coleman's previous days as the co-owner (with his brother) of a barbecue restaurant in Dallas, and Seattle Salmon Provencal Style was inspired by the abundance of salmon up in the Northwest. Butterscotch Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches were the happy result of a side trip to Ocean City, Maryland, where Coleman was filming a segment on striped bass—on a break, the chef went to an ice cream parlor on the boardwalk, and, as he says. "It's tough sometimes, doing research."

Appealing and sophisticated as all of these dishes seem, Flavors reflects Coleman's belief that food must be simple, delicious, and easy to re-create in the home. Even those who possess the most basic kitchen skills and experience as a home cook will have no problem making all of the recipes in this unique cookbook. Coleman also includes interesting headnotes and sidebars, with lots of excellent information about the creation of recipes and featured ingredients, from avocados to American caviar. Coleman says, "whatever our (show's) theme, we inevitably ended up focusing on the men and women working behind the scenes to bring food to our tables—the fishermen, farmers, growers, suppliers, and chefs...I could spend all day talking with them and learning, and in many cases I did!"

Jim Coleman's Flavors provides us with an amazingly delicious overview of all that is great about American cooking today. His warm introductions, easy-to-prepare recipes, and the informative way they are presented make this an enjoyable and useful cookbook that will become a favorite in kitchens across America.
