Famous for breaking rules and making up new ones, he was born in Italy, raised in Sweden and has cooked his way across America in many of the finest restaurants and hotels. In 1994 Peter joined Chevy's as exective chef and vice president so that he could trade in his toque for a sombrero.
Chevys & Rio Bravo FRESH MEX COOKBOOK features the rule-breaking recipes of executive chef and vice president of food and beverage, PETER SERANTONI. Peter is the "big enchilada" behind Fresh Mex--of course, he's a creative Italian chef who was raised in Sweden.
When Chevys-everybody's favorite Mexican restaurant-first opened in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1986, they pledged that everything would be made fresh from scratch every single day. True to their word, Chevys and Rio Bravo (its cousin in the southwest and southeast) make their salsa hourly from blackened tomatoes and serve their tortillas piping hot less than three minutes after they are made. Now for the first time, Chevys' classic recipes are made available for the home. In this flashy, full-color Fresh Mex primer, you'll learn how to make fabulous fajitas, smoky salsas, tasty tacos, and more, and serve them up with the same festive flair that is the hallmark of the Chevys.
