See those cookbooks up there?
Soon, there will be a San Francisco-centered one, too.
And I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be writing it.
Yes, my first cookbook ever.
“San Francisco Chef’s Table” (Globe Pequot) is expected to publish toward the end of this year.
Like the other books in this series, it will spotlight about 50 restaurants — most in San Francisco with a smattering from other parts of the Bay Area — and include recipes from each one.
The photos will be gorgeous, too, as they’ll be shot by award-winning photojournalist Craig Lee, who for many years was the main food photographer for the San Francisco Chronicle’s Food section.
Because the time-frame for completing the book is rather challenging, I will be making a temporary change to my FoodGal blog. I’ve prided myself on posting five days a week pretty much continuously since the blog’s inception five years ago. In order to accommodate the work on the book, though, I will be posting only three times a week (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays) from now through the end of July. After that, my blog will resume its regular five-posts-per-week schedule.
I hope you’ll bear with me through the process and continue to drop by my blog. After all, I’ve got some especially fun reads coming up, including posts from my recent trip to Maui, where I had the chance to interview Chef Sheldon Simeon of Star Noodle, who not only came in third in this past season of “Top Chef,” but also was chosen “fan favorite.”
Stay tuned for lots more.
