Description: San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area are known throughout the world for offering sophisticated and innovative cuisine of every kind -- be it Oriental, Italian, French, or frankly Californian. Many of the most popular new culinary trends of recent years began when curious and talented young California chefs started to use the abundant local produce of the lush coastal valleys in new and exciting combinations that borrowed from many cuisines to create something entirely fresh. 

Now the San Francisco Symphony, another of the Bay Area's local treasures, has put together its own culinary variety show, designed to bring the best of San Francisco to home cooks everywhere. 

In A Taste of San Francisco, over 80 of the Bay Area's best-known chefs have prepared nearly ninety complete menus designed specifically for the home kitchen. From culinary stars such as Ken Hom, Bradley Ogden, Wolfgang Puck, Jeremiah Tower, and Alice Waters; from internationally known restaurants like Fleur de Lys, Chez Panisse, Campton Place, Stars, and The Blue Fox -- to name just a few -- comes a mouth-watering diversity of recipes for all manner of food, from delectable grilled fish and poultry to delicately sauced homemade pastas, from crisp, tangy salads to elegant desserts. From Cafe Majestic comes an aromatic Sea Bass en Papillose with Tomato-Basil Sauce; the China Moon Cafe offers Chili-Orange Cold Noodles; Postrio gives us Crab Cake Salad with Sweet Red Pepper Sauce; and Square One tempts our taste buds with tangy Meyer Lemon Tartlets. 

Many of the dishes are quick and easy to make, with preparation and cooking times of under thirty minutes; others are more elaborate -- perfect for special occasions. Re-create an entire menu, or pick dishes from several to design a sampler of the best the Bay Area has to offer. A superb menu cookbook featuring the culinary stars of the San Francisco Bay Area from Alice Waters to Hubert Keller.
