Marlboro, MD, November 29, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Veteran chef Jack R. Stubbs today announced the release of Taste of the Islands and More, published by Outskirts Press. In his new cookbook the author guides readers through his tantalizing menu of unique recipes and shows them that cooking is a graceful art, but also a simple one, and that the key ingredients to being a great chef are passion and creativity.
A widely respected chef with a thirty-eight year career in the culinary arts, Jack Stubbs brings out many of his unique recipes, cooking techniques and the use of local fruits, vegetables, poultry, meat and seafood of the Bahamas. With many full color photos and a handy glossary defining such succulent ingredients as guanabana, mamey and bird peppers, Stubbs introduces his readers to a sumptuous Bahamian palette of simple, but extraordinary delicacies that will please diner’s morning, noon and night.
Baked Salmon with Spiced Mango Cream Sauce, Lime Roasted Turkey and Tamarind Grill Pork Chops are entrees that offer exciting new adventures to any diner’s taste buds, yet they are not complicated to prepare under Stubbs’ careful guidance. His Fresh Fig Brandy Relish, Guacamole Cabernet Dip and Gooseberry Pineapple Jam would be fresh faces for any table and they too, with simple recipe directions, are easy to prepare despite their exotic tastes.
Aspiring chefs can easily follow in Stubbs’ successful culinary footsteps and find their guests, too, lavishing praise on them at the end of the meal for such heavenly deserts as Banana Rum Cake or Sour Sop and Ginger Creme Brulee.
“You can take away my hat, my scarf, my apron, my thermometer, my title,” says Stubbs, “but you can’t take away the great joy and heartwarming feeling I have when the words ‘That was Fantastic!’ roll off my clients’ lips.”
Taste of the Islands and More is available on-line in paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.
ISBN: 978-1-4327-6138-7 Format: 7 x 10 color paperback SRP: $30.95
