If you live in the United States, here’s your chance to win a copy of Carolyn Jung’s new cookbook, San Francisco Chef’s Table. You got a taste of what’s inside via the ribs recipe from State Bird Provisions. What's inside the book?
You’ll find handsome chef portraits – lots of them. Among the Asian chefs featured, there are familiar chefs like Martin Yan and Hiro Sone and his wife Lissa Doumani of Michelin-star Ame. In the mix are young powerhouses like Belinda Leong of B Patisserie (I’ll be baking something from her this week) and Dennis Lee of Namu Gaji.
Each of the 55 chefs contributed recipes and they run the gamut. Leafing through, you'll see obvious Asian dishes like pan-fried noodles with XO sauce (MY China) and tandoori chicken (Amber India). But there are also nifty new twists, like recipes for an elaborate bowl of breakfast rice congee (Spice Kit) and gutsy Thai mango scone (Craftsman and Wolves).
San Francisco Chef’s Table offers a nice survey of the restaurants shaping the Bay Area’s food scene. No, you won’t find hole-in-the-wall spots but there’s plenty in the work for anyone to get a sense of what is available at Northern California eateries these days. With regard to the recipes, they’ve thankfully been scaled down for us mere mortal home cooks.
So, if you’re interested in getting a copy for free, here’s your chance!
