I was young, and on my way to my first cooking gig, at a diner-ish place in Whistler, and stopped by the Pink Peppercorn (RIP - the PP on Broadway was the first, and at the time only, cookbook store in Vancouver) to prepare for my new post.
I bought the Fog City Diner Cookbook by Cindy Pawlcyn, as it seemed apt for my new job; I thought I knew how to cook then, and I was soooo green. This book served me well! It has been a long time since I used it - I am a pastry chef now, not a cook - but going through the recipes still thrills me. This is real diner food with updated twists, super tasty comfort food that really hits the spot. The recipes always worked - I fondly remember the Grilled Beef and Chanterelle Mushrooms with Arugala appetizer, the Reddened Snapper Sandwich with Guacamole, the Crab Cakes with Sherry Cayenne Mayonnaise - OMG so good! People always came back for the German Chocolate Cake with Pecan Frosting, another gem of a recipe.
Cindy has since opened a number of well-known restaurants, and I used to own another good cookbook by her, for the Mustard?s Grill. Her books are very readable, with good attention to detail and quality instructions. This has been a great book for me, and I enthusiastically recommend it to home cooks or professionals alike. I am definitely going to give it another go-round in the near future - so good!
