Voila! Finally, the big reveal: Presenting the cover of my forthcoming cookbook, “East Bay Cooks: Signature Recipes from the Best Restaurants, Bars, and Bakeries” (Figure 1 Publishing).
I couldn’t be more excited to show off details of my newest cookbook, due out on Sept. 10, which will feature 41 of the best restaurants and bakeries in the East Bay.
To whet your appetite, that’s the paella from La Marcha Tapas Bar in Berkeley, and the lamb larb from Belcampo in Oakland’s Jack London Square prominent on the cover. The photos are all by the incredibly talented photographer Eva Kolenko.
What else will you find inside?
Cookbooks spotlighting iconic foodie cities. Soon, there will be a San Francisco one, written by yours truly.
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.
