Weir Cooking in the City

More than 125 Recipes and Inspiring Ideas for Rela

Photographer: Penina Meisels
Chef and teacher Joanne Weir brings every city to life as she takes readers and home cooks into our nation’s ethnically diverse and vibrant culinary and cultural urban landscape.

The American city food scene is thriving. In urban neighborhoods across the country you can find intriguing restaurants, ethnic and farmers’ markets, and artisanal breads and cheeses. Using her adopted city of San Francisco as a guide, Joanne invites readers to search their own cities for the incredible tastes they will find there, showing them where to source top-quality ingredients and how to re-create delicious local flavors at home.

With chapters on Firsts, Soups, Mains, and Desserts, Weir includes more than 125 vividly flavored, inventive recipes—from Parmesan Flan to Silver-Roasted Salmon with Sweet-Hot Relish to Double Chocolate Ice Cream with Dried Cherries—created with urban cooks in mind: those cooks with not enough time and too little space, but an appetite for creating memorable meals and social gatherings. Accompanied by wine suggestions from wine expert Tim McDonald and filled with mouth-watering photographs, Weir Cooking in the City is the ideal guide to effortless entertaining. From creating a dinner party of small plates to a simple but sophisticated post-theater meal, from bustling neighborhood markets to Joanne’s welcoming kitchen, this excursion into city cuisine will inspire home chefs everywhere to explore the unique styles and flavors of urban cooking.
