From their California roots, the Morgans bring an emphasis on fresh seasonal produce and a light and elegant style. With menu suggestions for sophisticated entertaining, and with a wealth of ideas for simple and terrific everyday meals, this book is the ideal companion for travelers who have visited the islands and want to recreate its cooking at home and for fans of global cooking who want to master a new and fascinating cuisine with ease.
