Amuse-Bouche: Little Bites Of Delight Before the Meal Begins by Rick Tramonto, Mary Goodbody

Amuse-bouche (pronounced ah-myuz boosh) are today what hors doeuvres were to America in the 1950s: a relatively unknown feature of French culinary tradition that, once introduced, immediately became standard fare. Chefs at many fine restaurants offer guests an amuse-bouche, a bite-sized treat that excites the tongue and delights the eye, before the meal is served. Nobody does it better than the celebrated executive chef/partner of Chicagos Tru, Rick Tramonto. Amuse-bouche are a fa-vorite of diners at Tru, many of whom come expressly to enjoy the grand amuse--an assortment of four different taste sensations. Amuse-Boucheoffers an array of recipes, from elegant and sophisticated to casual and surprisingbut always exquisitethat will inspire home cooks to share these culinary jewels with their guests. From Black Mission Figs with Mascarpone Foam and Prosciutto di Parma to Curried Three-Bean Salad, from Soft Polenta with Forest Mushrooms to Blue Cheese Foam with Port Wine Reduction, Tramontos creations will embolden the novice and the experienced cook alike to experiment with unfamiliar ingredients and techniques. Organized by type of amuse and season of the year, the book also includes a directory of sources for specialty products. With more than a hundred recipes and with fifty-two full-page color photographs by James Beard Award--winning photographer Tim Turner,Amuse-Boucheenchants the eyes as much as an amuse pleases the palate.
