Now, the cookbook that helped launch a national trend toward fresh ingredients and scaled-down portions (few of us need lumberjack-size servings anymore) is available in a new edition with the original, time-tested recipes. Generally speaking, this is not family fare: Grilled Lobster with Garlic Butter best serves two, as suggested. As before, all the recipes include recommendations for the ideal California wine to enhance the flavor of the food (a Napa Valley chardonnay with lots of body, fruit, and oak with the lobster). Steamed Sea Bass and Fresh Spinach with Cabernet Sauvignon Sauce goes well with "one of the lighter, silkier versions" of cabernet sauvignon, naturally. A compact book printed with a modern aesthetic and fairly light, curvaceous fonts, Cuisine of California is for more advanced or adventurous cooks and those who entertain regularly. Most of the recipes are for four to six servings. --Brenda Pittsley --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Got a dinner party coming up? Pull out this book and you're guaranteed to find a winning recipe--with menu and wine suggestions too. Want a cozy and delicious dinner for two? You'll find great ideas inside.
The ingredients lists and recipes are clear and supplemented by a glossary. I've halved and doubled recipes with little difficulty and have never had a failure. I trust this book so much that I've routinely served guests a dish I hadn't prepared before--with rave reviews!
This is a cookbook that belongs in every kitchen!
An added benefit of the cookbook is the wine recommendation given with each recipe. I am ordering three copies today. One copy to replace mine which has fallen apart, and two copies for gifts. My old copy has no pictures and I don't know if the new release will have any, but I haven't felt shortchanged by the lack of pictures in my nearly 20 years of using this book.
foods I put together and I bought her the book. It gives suggestions for food combinations that work very well together.
