Description:  The Hotel Bel-Air represents for native Angelenos, as well as the rest of the world, the Southern California of their dreams. Hidden in the most exclusive enclave in Los Angeles for the past fifty years, the Bel-Air has become a world-class hotel that defines and epitomizes Southern California entertaining and style. 

The Bel-Air Book of Southern California Food and Entertaining captures that life enhancing style, an alliance of ease and luxury, glamour and friendly casualness. 

Southern California's abundance of fresh foods and bright wines has brought forth a new style that marries classic French and traditional American techniques and recipes to the culinary influences of Los Angeles' Italian, Mexican, Chinese, Japanese, and Thai settlers. The food is as innovative as it is delicious; the presentation as dramatic as it is enticing. 

With its glorious photographs and recipes from the hotel's kitchen adapted for the home cook, The Bel-Air Book of Southern California Food and Entertaining brings the style of Southern California into your own home. With this lush volume, the bewitching elegance of the Hotel Bel-Air is within reach of any host.
