James Beard Award-winning chef, Michael Schwartz now shares the approachable, sought-after recipes that garnered national praise for his Miami restaurant with home cooks everywhere.

Michael focuses on sourcing exceptional ingredients and treating them properly--which usually means simply. A salad truly becomes a meal, such as BLT Salad with Maple-Cured Bacon, as do pizzas, pastas, soups, and sandwiches. Snacks aren't precious bits on toothpicks but hearty, eat-with-your-hands fare that can be mixed and matched, such as Caramelized Onion Dip with Thick-Cut Potato Chips and Crispy Polenta Fries with Spicy Ketchup. Side dishes are adventurous accompaniments that hold up mightily on their own, while the boldly flavored main dishes--from Grilled Wild Salmon Steak with Fennel Hash and Sweet Onion Sauce to Grilled Leg of Lamb with Salsa Verde--come in two sizes: large and extra large, for serving family-style at the table. From simple desserts that riff on classic childhood favorites and flavors, including Banana Toffee Panini, to Michael's favorite drinks, you'll have everything you need for the perfect dinner at home.

With seventy full-color photographs and abundant ingredient tips to help make the most of what's freshest at the market, Michael's Genuine Food is a guide you'll return to time and time again for meals that will slip everyone into a state of genuine contentment.
