Food Network’s celebrity chef Aaron Sanchez, author of “Simple Food, Big Flavor: Unforgettable Mexican-Inspired Recipes from my Kitchen to Yours” will discuss his book and share samples from some of his recipes at Ocean County Library’s Barnegat Branch Tue. Oct. 11 at 7 p.m.
“For this book I decided to take all my incredible flavor memories and distill them into magical sauces, purees and pastes that you can keep in the fridge or freezer and pull out whenever you want to turn a simple collection of ingredients into a seriously tasty dinner,” Sanchez said.
Those flavor-base recipes range from fragrant to fiery and savory to sweet. He guides readers through an introduction to their usage in main dishes adding tips on their ingredients, techniques, variations and storage.
“With patience and a little know-how, even the simplest dishes could be spectacular,” he said.
The co-star of Food Network’s series “Chefs vs. City,” Sanchez is the owner and executive chef of restaurant “Centrico” in New York City. The son of Mexican-cooking authority Zarela Martinez, Aaron’s passion, commitment and skills have placed him among the country’s leading contemporary Latin chefs.
