2014 is shaping up to be a big year for the famously splashy Miami empire builder Barton G. Weiss: Not only is there a long awaited Los Angeles expansion, Weiss is publishing his first, highly anticipated cookbook in celebration of the 10th anniversary of Barton G. The Restaurant in Miami. In The Big Dish: Recipes to Dazzle and Amaze from America's Most Spectacular Restaurant, Weiss aims to help readers create "unforgettable food and over-the-top presentations" with dishes where nothing "is quite what it seems on first inspection." Case in point, a recipe for a cheese board with biscotti disguised as toast and cheesecakes disguised as wheels of brie. The Big Dish comes out from Rizzoli in May (pre-order on Amazon); take a look inside below:
