More than just a cookbook, the title refers to the travels of the two authors as the book chronicles the voyages of Chefs Bernard Guillas and Ron Oliver of the renowned Marine Room restaurant at The La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club in La Jolla, California.

This culinary tome is written in a conversational, reader-friendly style which encourages cooking. It will appeal to a wide audience and takes readers everywhere from Thailand to Brazil, as each page begins with notes by the chefs about their visit to the country the recipe hails from.

Flying Pans contains several unique and helpful sections, such as Kitchen Drawer, which explores the chefs’ top 20 favorite tools; Out Of A Bind, providing ingredient substitutions; and Stock Options, teaching the foundation of sauce making.

An excellent read and with beautiful photography of each dish contained in the book, it’s no wonder this book has garnered awards, including the IACP People’s Choice Award: Best Cookbook in America in 2011.
