June Crosby’s San Diego Fare: An Insider’s Guide to San Diego Area Restaurants, 1972: Restaurant guide written by the wife of bandleader Bob Crosby and sister-in-law of singer and actor Bing Crosby. Published in 1972 by Crosstown Publications, La Jolla, California. Stated first edition, presumed first printing, no other being stated. Paper cover with 160 pages. Near mint condition. Cover has a slight bit of shelf wear. Binding is still very tight. Pages are all clean and clear. This book has never been used. Definitely gift quality. (This cookbook is very difficult to find. Copies are selling on the internet for $200 to $500 each.)
Cosby includes restaurants from La Costa to La Jolla to Tijuana, including 70 recipes from the restaurants. Her sauce chapter is amazing!
