Description: Amid the hills, cable cars, and Victorian architecture of San Francisco can be found some of the most delectable food anywhere. San Francisco A La Carte is a collection of the finest recipes this cosmopolitan city has to offer. 

In an entertaining format that combines locale and menu, you tour one picturesque neighborhood after another, sampling the specialties of each area along the way: the wonderful souffles and quiches from what was once pastureland in Cow Hollow; unforgettable pasta dishes from colorful North Beach; the succulent seafood of Fisherman's Wharf, perhaps Deviled Dungeness Crab or California Cioppino; a variety of poultry entrees from Chinese Chicken Salad to the unique "Four and Twenty Game Birds Baked in a Pie" made with quail. 

No cookbook from San Francisco would be complete without a selection of mouth-watering breads, particularly sourdough -- either the lighter than air Sourdough Pancakes that were a mainstay of the forty-niner's diet, or the world famous Sourdough French Bread. And as a final treat luscious dessert concoctions -- a mousse-like Chocolate Bourbon Cake or another San Francisco tradition, Fried Cream, plus many more, all fit for the Comstock Kings. 

From the quiet of the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park to the bustling atmosphere of Union Square, San Francisco A La Carte emphasizes the ethnic and social diversity of the Golden Gate City. It reflects this variety of traditions with over 500 carefully tested recipes that illustrate San Francisco's well-deserved reputation for fine cuisine. 

Whether you are looking for exciting menu ideas for a festive party, or a special treat for you family, San Francisco A La Carte will provide a wealth of inspiration.
