As the state’s capital city, Sacramento’s geographic location is ideal for its close access to fresh foods, grown in local fields and pulled from the nearby sea. The book has more than 400 recipes that celebrate such easy access to fresh goods, including Asparagus Frittata (p. 44); Caviar Torte (p. 56); California Chowder (p. 94); Steamed Crab Vermouth (p. 95); Quintessential Crab Casserole (p. 119); Stuffed Salmon in Poached Champagne (p. 128); Bucatini with Mushrooms, Tomatoes and Tuna (p. 178).
True to its title, Celebrate! offers menus for a range of celebrations, from breakfast in bed for two, to a cocktail buffet, to an afternoon tea for children. Thirty-five pages give professional advice on kitchen techniques, from cutting and deboning poultry, to creating decorations with sauces and veggie cutouts for detailed final touches.
