Remember when attaching "California" to food actually meant a thing or two? Fog City Diner Cookbook is something of a time capsule in that regard. You have seen similar-looking food on menus in your town. But that's now, and this book (and the food before it) came out back when it was news. What's interesting to note, however, is that Pawlcyn bases her dishes on sound culinary principles. She isn't throwing oddball ingredients together to grab attention or to appear to be clever, she's combining flavors and textures and cultural heritage to achieve specific effects, with new and powerful results. In other words, she shows restraint on the one hand, and knows what she's doing on the other.
For that first blush of that brash California "thang" with food, don't hesitate to hang your hat inside the Fog City Diner. The cookbook, that is. --Schuyler Ingle
I actually didn't enjoy this as much as I did her other cookbook - Mustard Grille. But, as the star rating indicates, "it's OK".Published 9 months ago by Larry
I ordered this, as I was hoping it would have their recipe for Cioppino - as I just love theirs - but it doesn't! I'll enjoy trying some of the others though. :)Published 17 months ago by Angela Macedo
I love this cookbook. It has some great recipes and they are easy to follow. I was able to also lend it to a friend of mine that is a vegetarian. Read morePublished on October 21, 2013 by Paula L. Fernandez
I had wanted the one with a specific recipe for lemon pie in it and was told this one had it but it did not.Published on July 15, 2013 by JoeB
