Concept Chef Carlo Sernaglia shares recipes from “Margaritaville: The Cookbook” that perfectly captures the Margaritaville state of mind.
Margaritaville conjures a vision of paradise and an invitation to kick back and enjoy good food with good friends. In the book, Chef Carlo shares his deep knowledge of Margaritville’s signature dishes along with his wide-ranging culinary inspirations. Acclaimed food writer Julia Turshen worked closely with Chef Carlo to create easy-to-prepare, do-it-yourself recipes. From breakfast, to a day at the beach, to cocktail hour and beyond, “MARGARITAVILLE: The Cookbook” has a recipe—and the story behind it—to suit a wide variety of tastes and occasions. Crowd-pleasers like the “Best Ever Chili” join upscale offerings like Lion Fish Carpaccio.
“Margaritaville is a laid-back state of mind and kickback and relax. Its escapism and what the doctor recommends for a healthy state of mind,” said Chef Carlo.
“We put together this wonderful cookbook, recipes of forty years of our recipes since the beginning from the first Margaritaville in Key West to what we are now as a brand with hotels and resorts,” said Chef Carlo. “There are different moments of Margarita life in this entire journey. We put together recipes that are simple easy to execute, stress-free and that you can enjoy with friends and family, have a great time and fun. That is the main ingredient here. The most important thing that you should not forget ever is relax. If you don’t relax then probably the recipe is not going to come out the right way.
