Tyler Florence is out with his new cookbook, Tyler Florence Fresh, and he’ll be signing copies and answering questions on Tuesday, Dec. 11 at his 59 Throckmorton Ave. shop.
The cookbook shows that using fresh, unprocessed food – whether they’re from the farmers’ market or you grocery store – is easier than you think.
The local celebrity chef also has deep roots in Mill Valley. Although Hawk’s Tavern, whose concept and menu he initially developed, recently closed after less than a year in business, Florence also helped revived the historic El Paseo, and offers local artisan products, cooking accessories and more at The Tyler Florence Shop downtown.
A bestselling author of seven cookbooks, in this latest Florence plays with contrasting flavors and combines easy-to-find ingredients in unexpected ways. Think ripe summer blueberries that transform a a frisée salad when tossed with whipped blue cheese and candied pecans, or using winter limes and oranges as a zesty side for smoke-roasted chicken.
