Create comfort food with a flair. Stuart Borton does it every day as chef-owner of the Yellow Dog Café, and he has written a cookbook that brings the home cook into his kitchen. In the colorful, 216-page Yellow Dog Café Cookbook, he shares his shortcuts for being a well-prepared cook, which takes the simplest meal to new heights or makes the most complicated meal easy to prepare. Borton’s easy-to-read, easy-to-follow volume covers a wide range of culinary delights, from appetizers and sauces to main courses and desserts. The recipe for Yellow Dog’s signature Onion-Crusted Chicken is included, as is one for its whimsical, dog-shaped sugar cookies. So are simple instructions for classic dishes like Manhattan clam chowder and quiche, and even one for quick pizza dough. And you guessed it, recipes to please the canine palate are included too.
About the author
CHEF STUART BORTON Michigan native, U.S. Army veteran, world traveler and lifelong cook Stuart Borton, author of the “Yellow Dog Café Cookbook,” has owned restaurants since the 1980s, when he was proprietor of the Old Parliament Restaurant & Coffee House, and Oxford’s Café, both in Adelaide, Australia. Borton and his wife, Nancy Tinio Borton, a respected restaurant executive and chef in her own right, owned the Steer Inn, a steakhouse located in the Michigan Livestock Exchange, before coming to Florida in the 1990s to set up and operate Stuart’s Bistro and the Pizza Store in Micco. In 1997, having seen the potential in an old building with panoramic waterfront views on the banks of the Indian River Lagoon in Malabar, they remodeled it and christened it the “Yellow Dog Café” and set about preparing and serving “comfort food with a flair.” Over the years, building its long dock, covered porch, the Yellow Dog Café has become a landmark on Florida’s Space Coast. It also is highly regarded for its food, and since opening in early 1998, the restaurant has received excellent reviews in national, regional and local publications. In Touch magazine called it, “a legendary Florida restaurant;” Florida Travel & Life magazine said it possessed some of the best tables-with-a-view in the Sunshine State; and longtime Orlando Sentinel reviewer Scott Joseph wrote, “the views of the Indian River make Yellow Dog Café a scenic setting for a wonderful dining excursion.” It is among the few restaurants to have been awarded five palms by Florida Today. Borton also is highly involved in the community. He is chairman of the board for the Greater Palm Bay Chamber of Commerce and serves as vice president for restaurants and Chair elect of the Space Coast Chapter of the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association. A former member of the Citizen Advisory Council of the St. Johns River Water Management District, on the marketing advisory board of the Brevard County Tourism Development Council and the Brevard County Culinary Advisory Committee, Borton also volunteers to teach cooking to children at St. Joseph’s Catholic School in Palm Bay, Florida. Having been asked numerous times for his recipes and chef’s secrets, Borton published the “Yellow Dog Café Cookbook,” a 216-page, full-color volume, in late 2010. It is available at the restaurant, bookstores and culinary shops. Stuart and Nancy Borton are residents of Malabar.
