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!
Publishers Weekly, 1993-05-31 On the front door of the Fog City Diner in San Francisco is a sign: ``No Crybabies.'' And it means ``anything goes--have a good time, and leave your problems elsewhere,'' writes Bill Higgins, a co-proprietor with Pawlcyn, and contributor of the introduction to this collection of the diner's recipes. Obviously, Fog City has many of the usuals--though they've been spruced up--and, less obviously, it practices the sort of sophistication in food that San Francisco is famous for. So the book serves up mashed potatoes, and duck stew; gingerbread, and sauteed prawns; chili dogs, and lobster gazpacho. This provocative little volume offers a welcome taste of old and new, American and fusion, and a vicarious trip to a metro area that doubles as culinary nirvana. One can nearly understand why people get into the business of serving food (and drink--Fog City is well known for its eclectic stock): pleasure, sheer license. Photos not seen by PW .
