For more than two decades, in an odd and intimate warren of rooms, San Franciscans of every variety have come to the Zuni Café with high expectations and have rarely left disappointed.

In 1987, after cooking her way through France, Italy, and Spain, Judy Rodgers arrived at San Francisco's Zuni Café. Through years of creating daily menus for the café, she nurtured all the culinary traditions she had observed in her travels, adapting them to the emerging traditions of Californian cooking.

The Zuni Café Cookbook shares the repertory Rodgers has developed. She walks you through each dish, providing friendly explanations of the how and why of every step. Crystal-clear essays on deciding what to cook, shopping for your food, and the habit of tasting will liberate the inexperienced cook and provide new insight for the experienced.
