Would you like a shovel with your salad? A snow-cone in your cocktail? How about some meatballs in your parfait? When Barton G. is in the kitchen, there is only one thing to expect: the unexpected. For him cooking represents an opportunity to let the imagination run wild. He has a peculiarly wonderful mission: he wants us all to play with our food. His message is that having fun in the kitchen is the most surefire way to create a fun party.

In The Big Dish, Barton shows you how to re-create this magic at your next party or special event. He reveals the secrets to the unforgettable food and over-the-top presentations from his beloved restaurants. The element of surprise is an underlying theme. Barton specializes in a particular brand of culinary trompe l'oeil. No dish is quite what it seems on first inspection. Take the Cheese Board: rounds of brie and camembert turn out to be miniature cheesecakes, and alongside, those aren't toasts, they're biscotti. Bite into what looks like a pop tart and you discover there is a savory lobster filling inside. Small clay pots come planted with crudite veggie flowers and black olive soil.
