Product Description


"The definitive mango cookbook, bursting with decadent recipes that will keep you sated from dawn 'til dusk! Peppered with personal anecdotes and joined by the voices (and recipes!) of Miami's most celebrated chefs, Jen Karetnick's Mango is an absolute must for any lover of this sweet, beloved, tropical fruit." --Marie Elena Martinez, founding editor, The Latin Kitchen

Join Miami's Mango Mama, Jen Karetnick, for a culinary tour of all things mango. She invites you into her home, the Mango House, where many of these luscious recipes were created. She introduces you to the Mango Gang, a group of world-renowned chefs including Allen Susser and Norman Van Aken. These chefs make frequent use of the bounty from Jen's ninety-year-old trees in their Miami restaurants, and in Mango, they share some of their favorite recipes.

Karetnick discusses the best methods for picking, preparing, and eating mangos and shares expert tips on how to dehydrate and freeze them so you can enjoy this delicious fruit year-round. The easy-to-follow, exquisite recipes run the gamut from smoothies to cocktails, from mango blintzes for breakfast to jerked grouper with mango-fig chutney for dinner, and from mangria (mango-flavored sangria) to mangospacho (mango-infused gazpacho). If you're looking for a tantalizing hint of mango or a tropical explosion of flavor, this book has just the right recipe for you.

Jen Karetnick is the dining critic for MIAMI Magazine and creative director at Miami Arts Charter School.
