The Dutch's Andrew Carmellini Gets Busy With Book, Today Show Appearance
|Andrew Carmellini is one busy man.|
The 336-page book, which comes out today, features a diverse mixture of "roots-inspired" cuisine. Carmellini shares recipes from many of America's ethnic sources, from Polish to Irish to Thai and back to Carmellini's Italian heritage.
Carmellini will appear on The Today Show Wednesday, October 19, at 9:45 a.m. to discuss American Flavor and his plans for The Dutch in Miami Beach, which is set to open at The W South Beach Hotel and Residences in time for Art Basel.
Though The Dutch's Miami Beach menu is not set, chef Carmellini is working local products into his dishes like roasted beets with grapefruit, pistachio, and Hani Khouri's feta and local fried green tomatoes with ruby red shrimp and pepper sauce.
The Dutch will also incorporate some New York favorites, like their famous pies. Here's a picture of their peach pie to get you in the mood:
