Orlando Weekly restaurant critic Faiyaz Kara has long been celebrated for his creative turns of phraseEsquire magazine can't get enough of him, including him in their "Sampler" feature of reviews of the week at least three different times over the years

But only close readers know he's not just a gimlet-eyed reviewer, he's also an accomplished cook. (He shared a recipe for Gujurat goat chili with readers last year.) 

Now his debut cookbook is out, and if you could imagine serving his verbiage on a plate, it would look and taste pretty much like this. The recipes require a fairly high level of skill, so if you're not quite there in the kitchen yet but still want to taste some of Faiyaz's work, this event at Ravello is for you.
