California Pizza Kitchen: Pasta, Salads, Soups, and Sides

by FamilyTime


Their secret is out. The California Pizza Kitchen restaurant chain has gone public with its highly sought-after recipes. "California Pizza Kitchen: Pasta, Salads, Soups and Sides" marks founders Larry Flax and Rick Rosenfield's second foray into cookbooks, the first concentrating more heavily on pizzas.

In their second work, the authors take traditional ethnic foods, such as spring rolls, and give them unexpected twists to create a sumptuous array of original dishes. Creative pastas, salads, soups, and sides are accompanied by a small selection of delectable desserts.

Recipes vary in complexity and preparation time, but one or two may just end up being one of your staples.
