Mr. Tower does not exaggerate when he refers, in the subtitle of his book, to "the American culinary revolution." He knows. He was there. He helped make it happen. California Dish is his victory lap. And he deserves one.
Sara Moulton host, Food Network's Sara's Secrets
California Dish delivers on the double meaning implicit in its title — it serves up a longtime insider's juicy perspective on the key players of the American culinary revolution and recounts, course by course, a career's worth of exceptional meals. It's a great read. I couldn't put it down.
Any foodie worth his coarse salt remembers — in mouthwatering detail — every flavor that shaped his palate. So it goes with chef-restaurateur Jeremiah Tower, who recounts with world-weary relish...the memorable meals on his journey from childhood gourmet to godfather of California's New American cuisine.
The food of Jeremiah Tower has always satisfied my belly and my soul. He was there from the start and is more qualified than anyone else to tell the story of the American food revolution of the last thirty years.
