Rob Feenie first wowed diners with his innovative tasting menus combining classic cooking techniques, international flavors, and local produce in the 1990s at Lumire restaurant in Vancouver. Rob Feenie's Casual Classics brings together the celebrated chef's favorite recipes for the best meals in life: everyday cooking with family and friends. From appetizers to desserts, every recipe has been tested in Feenie's home kitchen and approved by his own three kids, ages three, six, and seven. From such fundamental recipes as roasted tomato sauce and juicy poached chicken to globally inspired dishes like barbecued duck spring rolls and quinoa jambalaya and braised osso buco, Feenie shares his modern classics and adds practical tips for saving time and money. The result is a one-stop compendium of casual recipes, written as if Chef Feenie were cooking beside you. This beautifully illustrated and inspirational compendium of family classics is sure to become a staple in any home chef's library.
