From the Inside Flap
Bravo! Joyce Goldstein’s authoritative and eminently entertaining work retires the field on all books attempting to define the California food movement that forever changed the course of how we eat in America. It’s a must-read for any cook, restaurateur, journalist, and restaurant-lover who is genuinely curious about how and where it all started.” Danny Meyer, chef and author of Setting the Table: The Transforming Power of Hospitality in Business
"Who is better suited than Joyce Goldstein to curate and catalogue the influence that California has had on how we eat and dine today? This engrossing book is a satisfying and engaging read." David Kinch, chef and author of Manresa: An Edible Reflection
A smart and succinct summary of those key decades in California that changed the way many Americans eat and view food. I'm so glad that Joyce Goldstein has put this special history together; she's the one to have done it.” Deborah Madison, founding chef at Greens restaurant and author of Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone
Joyce Goldstein shows, in compelling, illuminating detail, that what we call California cuisine is simply California itself revealed: the land, the climate, a way of thinking and a way of living made manifest on a plate. Her research is thorough, her ear impeccable, and her storytelling enthralling. This is a glorious and dare one say it delicious book.” Gerald Asher, former wine editor of Gourmet, and author of A Vineyard in my Glass and A Carafe of Red
This book is a must read for anyone who cares about food and its ability to influence and inspire community building and change. A new generation now has a deeper understanding of how to take the movement even further, to push the limits of flavor, seasonality, locality, authenticity and freshness. Simply Delicious!” Sam Mogannam, coauthor of Bi-Rite Market's Eat Good Food
"This is an impeccably detailed account of one of our country's most influential and enduring culinary developments. It provides insights into the California food movement that are enlightening even to some of us who lived and ate through it. One may disagree with some of the assessments, but this book is a valuable read toward understanding what went on and why, and how we continue to benefit from it." Mimi Sheraton, author of The German Cookbook and Eating My Words: An Appetite for Life

I especially love that there is plenty on Chez Pannisse and credit is given for the amazing role they played but they are one aspect of a much more complex story. Square One, Zuni and maybe most especially, Stars, also defined California Cuisine and their stories are along with the food purveyors and farmers. Most of the players are still on the scene today and the book for me helped fill in a lot of gaps.
It's a fun story and it made me proud of California!
It's a great read and leaves you filled with gratitude at the dedication of all parties. I'm immensely grateful for the huge effort that Ms. Goldstein has given us. It's a delicious book and has actually made me appreciate more every meal I've had since reading it.
