Fog City Diner Cookbook, 1993. “This book is not for Crybabies.” Cookbook written by Cindy Pawlcyn about the Fog City Diner that opened in San Francisco on June 16, 1985. Oversized, hard cover book with no dust jacket. 239 pages. This colorful, idiosyncratic cookbook was published in 1993 by Ten Speed Press, San Francisco. The cookbook is in mint, never used condition.
Definitely gift quality. Recipes combine standard diner fare–hamburgers, hot dogs–with more artsy, foodie recipes, like Leek and Pear Soup.
At VintageCookbook.com we try to provide you with your mother’s cookbook! I know lots of current recipe bloggers write proudly that their recipes are “not from your mother’s cookbook.” We think the recipes in your mother’s cookbook provided food that was nutritious and warm and colorful and just plain yummy! We know that just looking at the cover of your mother’s Woman’s Home Companion Cook Book makes you feel good. Holding her Betty Crocker Cookbook, or her Better Homes and Gardens, or Good Housekeeping Cookbook in your hands is better than nostalgic. And cooking some of those dishes for your children will pass on a great tradition.
