With the growing national popularity of his BLT restaurants, Laurent Tourondel has reinvented the bistro for Americans today, combining the welcoming coziness of a traditional French bistro with the à la carte options of an American steakhouse. Now, in this exciting new cookbook, Tourondel shows you how to prepare his stylish and delicious dishes at home.

Illustrated throughout with over 150 striking photos, Bistro Laurent Tourondel offers nearly 150 simple yet spectacular recipes, each accompanied by a carefully chosen wine pairing. Raised in France, Tourondel includes a number of recipes based on old family favorites, but also incorporates tastes from Asia, the Mediterranean, and North America. From Chinese Chicken Salad and Anise Duck Tortellini to BLT Grilled Tuna Sandwich and Curry–Kaffir Lime Chicken Pot Pie, the recipes he presents are deliciously eclectic and wonderfully soul-satisfying—sophisticated enough to impress the most discerning guests, yet easy to follow, making them accessible to any home cook.

Tourondel is renowned for his seafood and meat dishes, and you'll find plenty of standout recipes here to gratify both fish lovers and unrepentant carnivores—Seared Arctic Char with Shiitake-Ginger Vinaigrette, Striped Bass with Curry Brown Butter, Adobo-Marinated Hanger Steak, and Smoky Honey Veal Porterhouse, to name just a few. To accompany these main courses, Tourondel offers a spectacular array of starters and sides, along with luscious desserts such as Peanut Butter–Chocolate Parfait and Hazelnut Crunch Pumpkin Pie. Reinventing familiar flavors through technical finesse, Tourondel shows you how to take casual cooking and entertaining to a new level.

Complete with ingredient descriptions, professional tips, and serving suggestions, Bistro Laurent Tourondel is a dazzling look at one chef's groundbreaking cuisine—an essential cookbook for re-creating American bistro cooking at its most exciting and adventurous.
