For twenty-four years, in an odd and intimate warren of rooms, San Franciscans of every variety have come to the Zuni Cafe with high expectations and have rarely left disappointed.
In The Zuni Cafe Cookbook
, a book customers have been anticipating for years, chef and owner Judy Rodgers provides recipes for Zuni's most well-known dishes, ranging from the Zuni Roast Chicken to the Espresso Granita. But Zuni's appeal goes beyond recipes. Harold McGee concludes, "What makes The Zuni Cafe Cookbook
a real treasure is the voice of Zuni's Judy Rodgers," whose book "repeatedly sheds a fresh and revealing light on ingredients and dishes, and even on the nature of cooking itself." Deborah Madison (Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone
) says the introduction alone "should be required reading for every person who might cook something someday."
24 pages of color; 50 black-and-white photographs
"Better than the cuisine, though, is the writing-and how many restaurant cookbooks can you say that about? Even the recipes are a joy to read." -- Russ Parsons - Los Angeles Times
