Andrew Carmellini has a lot on his plate, so to speak. In between trips to Miami to oversee the build-out of his SoBe outpost of The Dutch and visit local farms like Teena's Pride and Paradise Farms, Carmellini is going on Today to plug his cookbook, American Flavor.
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
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:
