***

Everything else you need to know about Anna is probably contained in the author's first interview, conducted in 1989 by the boy next door:

Anna Roth is my six year old neighbor (or 6 3/4, as she tells me). She is an avid Seattle Mariners fan and idolizes Pee-Wee Herman. Anna attends first grade at Wedgwood Elementary School. She likes her teacher, Ms. Taylor, because she only assigns homework once per week. When I asked Anna what her favorite subject was in school, she instantly replied, "Recess." Anna's favorite hobby is to chase a first grade boy named Mike.

Anna's best friend is her stuffed animal, Miranda the Panda. Miranda is also 6 3/4 years old and was born downtown.

Aside from Miranda, Anna's prize possessions are her Minnie Mouse watch and Pee-Wee Herman belt.

Anna likes to visit her relatives in Los Angeles and Moab, Utah. Anna lived in Saratoga, New York for three years and deeply wants to see the Statue of Liberty.

Anna's favorite day of the year is the Fourth of July and her favorite movie is "Who Framed Roger Rabbit."

Anna's one wish in life is to have fried chicken and milk for dinner, every night for the rest of her life!

This is a good cookbook to add to your collection.

There's a lot of info squeezed between the covers, but the layout, organization, and writing style make it fun to go through.

Format: Paperback
I got this as a gift from a fellow foodie, and have to say how delightful and useful this book is. I've lived in the Pacific NW for years, with many forays into Oregon and California, as well, and thought I knew a lot of the must-try eateries. Apparently, my knowledge is sorely deficient. This guide is going to keep me busy for a long time.

The range of eateries covered is quite diverse, and the author's reviews strike just the right balance: enough detail on each place to quickly give you a really good sense of it, but not so much info that your attention flags as you read through each section. In addition to the brightly written reviews, there are many other features that have been incorporated into the text which make the book even more helpful and easy to use: icons to differentiate types of restaurants, web addresses, maps, road trip planning tips, suggestions on other interesting sites in each area, etc. If you're taking a long trip, or just want to plan a modest excursion, this book will be a valuable resource and companion. There's a lot of info squeezed between the covers, but the layout, organization, and writing style make it fun to go through.

Now, excuse me, it's time to get into my car...

This book would be a delight to read, regardless of its intended place in travel, food, or road adventure books. Anna Roth's very clear regard for the elegance of phrase along with a taste for good eating, fun exploration, adding tidbits of history, geography, and also whimsy makes reading her West Coast Road Eats a discovery itself. Anyone planning a trip through these western states will find this not just a good resource but a pleasure to read.

Having recently discovered the pleasure of long road trips without the TSA, this book is packed full of great places to stop. Within 50 miles of home in the San Francisco Bay Area, the book recommends a lot of the places I would recommend. Based on the places I know, this book emphasizes good food at reasonable prices without a lot of pretentious baggage.

Highly recommended - I'd give it six stars if I could.

We used this book as we made our way down the Pacific Coast Highway and back up highway 5. We stopped at numerous recomendations from the book and found them all to be spot on. For anyone who loves searching out hidden treasures, this book is a must.

Used this book along with the internet and the book Pacific Coast Highway Hotels in planning a 10 day road trip on the PCH. Very helpful. Good places to dine is an important part of any road trip.
