The Zuni Cafe Cookbook: A Compendium of Recipes and Cooking Lessons from San Francisco's Beloved Restaurant

Judy Rodgers

Book cover

My review is based not on the recipes in this book (I’ve only tried a couple of them so far), but just on its quality as a “reading cookbook”. The beginning gave me high hopes that it would be a great cover-to-cover read like Shizuo Tsuji. But aside from a couple of short sections, it’s basically just recipes–decidedly not my favorite part of a cookbook.

Elise and I have made the fried eggs with breadcrumbs a couple of times and really like them. They are about twice as fun as normal fried eggs and barely any harder as long as you have breadcrumbs around.

My Goodreads rating: 2 stars
