Since opening its doors in 2016, UCLA's Plateia restaurant and lounge has been introducing its guests to a delicious array of Mediterranean-inspired, California-fresh dishes -- as well as world-class dining experiences, ambiance and service. Plateia: The Cookbook unlocks some of this magic in an accessible and enjoyable manner -- one that encourages lovers of great food to roll up their sleeves, put on an apron and recreate many of these dishes in the comfort of their home kitchens.
From soups, salads and appetizers, to pizzas, entrées, sides, desserts and more, you'll find yourself expertly recreating some of their favorite Plateia dishes and discovering new ones to enjoy with friends and family. In addition to more than 70 recipes, Plateia: The Cookbook offers a behind-the-kitchen-door look at how this restaurant has become a popular focal point for meeting, celebrating and dining at UCLA, as well as some of the people and processes that make this restaurant remarkable and revered.
