Fried Catfish - click to enlarge


Here are some recipes of mine that have appeared in my books, in magazine articles, and on television programs. Some of them have never been published. Some of the dishes are traditional southern, some are newfangled, and some just reflect the way I cook, after having lived in the Caribbean, France, Italy, the South, and New York, and having travelled extensively throughout the Mediterranean basin.

I hope you'll enjoy making them as much as I do. These are some of my favorites.
