About Canary by Gorji

Chef Gorji defines New Mediterranean through his personal preparation of each entree five nights a week at Canary by Gorji as well as his bi-monthly cooking technique classes and his own product line, Gorji Gourmet.  Chef Gorji prepares dishes native to the entire Mediterranean area including Southern France, Spain, Italy, Greece, Israel, Lebanon, Turkey, and northern Africa. His New Mediterranean cuisine is upscale, modern cooking using prime cuts of meat with abbreviated cooking times to bring out the natural flavor of food. 


"The use of the best ingredients I can find and a minimalistic approach to spices allows me to do with Mediterranean what other chefs have been doing with New American for years", said Chef Gorji.  "I put my own twist on ethnic Mediterranean recipes combining traditional dishes in new ways. Think of Greek dishes with Lebanese influences or mixing French and Italian styles and techniques like my escargot in pomodoro.  My dishes meld the best of both worlds, the old world essence, but per order for my guests".


Gorjis signature use of the pomegranate, which he has fresh year round, predates the current popularity for this deep-red fruit so widely used in Mediterranean countries. This delicious flavor is the highlight of many of Gorjis recipes and is used in his unique dishes such as Beef Anar, Gnocchi Pomegranate Creme, Bulgarian Feta and Fresh Pomegranates, Salmon Anar, as well as his Champome cocktail. His award-winning fare has attracted "foodies" of all ages, including young children.  The clean, fresh "just picked" taste of his pomodoro sauce has made it the star of his product line.  Gorjis instructional DVD, Cooking with Gorji, demonstrates some of these recipes and techniques. A cookbook is in the works with more recipes, tips and instructions detailing his innovative methods and unusual pairing of ingredients.
