Picks and Pans Review: Adventures in the Kitchen

by Wolfgang Puck

Like his namesake in A Midsummer Night's Dream, Puck brings a spritely playfulness to any scene—and to these 175 recipes from his five California restaurants. A day might begin with poached eggs on sausage patties with spicy salsa, move to a midday meal of sautéed crabcakes (loaded with cream and ground almonds) and an evening repast of roasted squab atop pan-fried noodles. This is a guide best suited to the serious cook with time, a plump budget and a well-equipped kitchen. You may not be able to mimic the master, but you can learn from his imaginative instincts, and if your whiskey fudge cake flops, you can always try to book a table at Postrio and order it.
