Chad Carns recently published The Gourmet Bachelor: Global Flavor, Local Ingredients. This wonderful cookbook inspired by the fresh flavors of Greenwich Village is very user-friendly, featuring everyday cooking techniques and wine pairings highly suited for each recipe. The Gourmet Bachelor himself was kind enough to share a spicy recipe with me here on Evenings With Peter. Thanks, Chad!
