San Francisco is one of the GREATEST cities in the US--it has architecture, restaurants, water, bridges, fun and eclectic neighborhoods, trolly trains and lots of hills. It is an exciting urban atmosphere.
If I were visiting San Francisco today, the one thing I would return home with would be a copy of San Francisco Entertains. This new cookbook published by the Junior Leaue of San Francisco is amazing. While the overall look of the book, including the gorgeous photography of both food and scenes of the city is amazing, it is the recipes that quickly catch your attention.
I took a copy home over the weekend and we tried out the Sweet Curried Mustard Chicken--WOW! My daughter and her husband had just flown back to the US from their honeymoon and were starving since they hadn't eaten since breakfast. Let me just say that there was no chicken left when the meal was finished.
The look of the book is very soft as the text, including the photos was printed on offset paper rather than a coated paper. Therefore the photos don't "pop" quite as much and yet the look is very excuisite. It has a "richness" to it that is difficult to describe.
