Dying for a taste of those rich, gooey, chocolatey cookies above?

You know you are.

Then, come by Omnivore Books in San Francisco, 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Jan. 13, for a taste. I’ll be signing copies of my debut cookbook, “San Francisco Chef’s Table” (Lyons Press) with Pastry Chef Rodney Cerdan of Prospect in San Francisco and Chef Will Pacio of Spice Kit, with locations in San Francisco and Palo Alto.

Both chefs are featured in my cookbook and will be bringing treats to the event.

The “Chocolate Mudslide Cookies” are not only full of chocolate goodness, but also bits of home-made toffee that sometimes overflow out of the cookies  just like a real mudslide. And yes, the recipe is featured in the book.

Then, you have farmer David Winsberg to thank for the fact that they now star on so many Bay Area menus and can be purchased easily at local farmers markets.

Winsberg’s Happy Quail Farms in East Palo Alto was believed to be the first commercial grower of this special pepper in this country.
