Description: In Northern California, on the lovely Pacific Coast, in a cozy turn-of-the-century Victorian you'll find a restaurant that, despite being some 150 miles north of San Francisco in the tiny village of Mendocino, has become a raved-about destination for food lovers in the know.
That restaurant, of course, is Cafe Beaujolais, and ever since Margaret Fox took it over in 1977, the praise has been flooding in ... from the New York Times, Gourmet magazine, the San Francisco Chronicle, the New York Daily News, and others, including Julia Child, who once made a special trip to sample the restaurant's fare, and pronounced it "worth the detour."
This is the first book to collect the Beaujolais's marvelous dinners, as prepared by Christopher Kump, the restaurant's evening chef since 1984 (and married to owner-chef Margaret Fox since 1988). Drawing on his rich culinary background, his love of fresh, regional ingredients, and his favorite world cuisines, Chris has created something engagingly personal in this book -- a set of recipes that are exquisite and easy to prepare, sharing his gourmand's curiosity, as revealed in the Beaujolais's eclectic and enduringly popular fare.
Here, one may sample the delights of over 100 Beaujolais favorites, including Chicken and Goat Cheese Ravioli, Thai-Style Poached Seafood Salad, French Currant Bread, and Bittersweet Chocolate Raspberry Millefeuilles. Also, you'll find handy hints on how to make great mashed potatoes, reflections on running a country restaurant, and down-home advice about achieving the best results possible, whatever ingredients you have in your kitchen. This is a book to make every evening meal memorable.
