Cat Cora’s Classics

catcoraclassicsA twist, indeed. From one Greek girl to another…well done, Cat Cora.

Honestly, this is not what I expected when I purchased Cat Cora’s Classics With A Twist: Fresh takes on favorite dishes (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt: New York, 2010). Cat Cora successfully takes “everyday classics” and imparts fresh and exciting flavors, while keeping things healthy and delicious. And I say, “Prove it!”

There’s no denying her Greek heritage. Her use of feta, Greek yogurt, pita bread, olives, and oregano brought joy to my heart. But she didn’t limit her flavors to a Mediterranean cast of characters. If you’re looking for a way to add a few flavorful stand-by recipes to your routine, you’ll like this book.

Kouzzina For the record, Cat Cora is no slouch. She became the first female chef on Iron Chef America. She is the executive chef of Bon Appetit, and she’s the author of Cooking from the Hip and Cat Cora’s Kitchen – of which I own neither and that needs to be rectified immediately, or in time for my birthday. :) Then again, I’ll be happy to wait for Christmas.

She has a restaurant called CCQ in Costa Mesa, California, and Kouzzina at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.

And, in the event you’ve forgotten, she’s a Greek girl. Opa!
