Overview

This completely revised edition of Michele Anna Jordan's much praised cookbook features 200 recipes, touring information, and cook's sources, making it the definitive food lover's guide to America's Provence. Sonoma County stretches from the fog-cooled coast of Northern California to the Mayacamas Mountains in the east; it hangs like a plump grape cluster west and northwest of its neighbor, Napa. Less than an hour away from San Francisco, this celebrated region has become synonymous with good taste, high-quality culinary ingredients, and the best food in the world. Originally published in 1990 by Addison-Wesley, The New Cook's Tour of Sonoma includes 200 recipes, extensive sections on wine and the burgeoning olive oil industry, and engaging portraits of the region's cheesemakers, dairymen and women, breadmakers, farmers, and chefs. With sixteen pages of spectacular color photographs, this gorgeous cookbook shows how the place, its people, and its food are inextricably linked.
