There are a few (the Cap’n Crunch French Toast from the Blue Moon Cafe in Baltimore, for example), but the bulk of the recipes are “new.” It was more than a little frustrating to read about the wonderful dishes in Guy’s descriptions of the restaurant, only to find few recipes for any of them. While each establishment is represented by a recipe, almost none of the recipes are described in the narrative. For example, Baby Blues Bar-B-Q in Venice, CA — Guy waxes rhapsodic over the “killer mac and cheese made from four cheeses” and “grilled corn with chipotle-poblano butter and cotijo cheese sprinked on top.” The featured recipe: sauteed okra. Huh? That’s not to say these are not GOOD recipes — in fact, most of them look pretty darned tasty.
