Look What's Cooking in and Near San Francisco


by Katherine Kerry


James A. Pike, Publisher, 1953


Original dust jacket, minor water damage to dust jacket,


Here is a book designed, not only for San Franciscans, and their neighbors, but for the world at large. For San Francisco is a cross-roads, a convention center, and a mecca for tourists looking for the best in beautiful vistas, good living, excitement and above all good food.


On returning to her home city, after an around the world cruise, Katherine Kerry felt there was a definite need, not only to tell the story of the historic and famous dining places, but to record recipes from time honored restau-rants, so residents and visitors alike could enjoy these epicurean delights at home.

In these pages you will find the recipe for the Palace Hotel's famous Green Goddess Salad, Crêpes Suzette by Paris Louvre, Roast Duck with Black Cherries, as only prepared at the gourmet's paradise, the El Prado. Here you will find food and drink from 'round the world as collected by Skipper Kent or Lamb Stew Parisienne a favorite at one of Rickey's fine restaurants.
