"Sorry, Everything Is Delicious": So reads the sign at Mustards Grill, the culinary mecca in Napa, California. For 18-plus years, Mustards has been serving up BBQ sandwiches, goat cheese mashed potatoes, and lemon-lime meringue pie in an atmosphere some describe as "truck stop deluxe" -- which would only be accurate if the truck stop had a great wine list and topped its steaks with a red-wine butter sauce.
Cindy Pawlcyn is the spirit behind Mustards, and her personality and humor run rampant through this beautifully designed book that is graced with many color photographs. This collection of 150 recipes from Mustards' most-wanted offerings consists not of not fancy dishes but ones you can make at home.
As you'd hope, there's a great chapter on grilled and smoked foods, and an outstanding one on sandwiches, including Pork Sandwiches with Ooo-Eee! Sauce and the one Pawlcyn's husband allegedly married her for (Smoked Ham and Jarlsberg Cheese Sandwiches with Basil Mayonnaise and Tomato and Apricot Chutney). From Appetizers (Chinese-Style Chicken Wings, Duck Carnitas Tostadas) all the way to Desserts (Coconut Dream Pie with Gooey Chocolate Coconut Sauce), fans of the restaurant can now bring a little Mustards home.
