Description: The Bay Wolf Restaurant was founded on a single guiding principle: that the ideal meal consists of a seat in an elegant and comfortable space, surrounded by friendly companions, enjoying food prepared with exuberance and affection. For twenty-five years, Michael Wild has been delivering just that -- vibrant, world-class food served in a cozy, vintage Victorian in Oakland. With this dining philosophy and a unique blend of robust flavors from the Mediterranean, Tuscany, Provence, and the Basque country, the acclaimed Bay Wolf has been at the vanguard of California cuisine for its long lifetime. But truer to its calling, the restaurant has been a home away from home for Bay Area food lovers and artists, an inviting setting for strangers and old friends to meet, converse, and delight in delicious food.
This colorful and highly personal cookbook commemorates the people, wine, and food of Bay Wolfs first quarter century. Organized by month according to the restaurant's seasonal menus, the over 100 recipes reflect Bay Wolf's variety and originality. Michael shares many of Bay Wolf's delectable duck recipes, including Duck with Red Wine Flan and Chanterelles, and Duck Legs with Pinot Noir and Summer Succotash. Lavish full-color food photographs complement Michael's playfully literate narrative to convey the mixture of sophistication, down-to-earth simplicity, and generosity of spirit that one gets from Bay Wolf's distinct dining experience.
