For years the legend of San Francisco firehouse cookery has been part of the gastronomic folklore of that fabulous city. It was bruited about that more than one distinguished hotel chef paid midnight visits to the neighboring firehouse to extract the secrets of the resident chef's cioppino. Here, in this elegant and practical book, four enterprising young San Franciscans have shown the legend to be very real indeed. On a budget of a dollar a day per man, the modest but extraordinary chefs of the city's fire departments serve meals and dishes of great style and ingenuity. The best of their efforts are presented here, scaled down to family size and carefully tested. The result is a striking and original cookbook which both preserves and celebrates a unique American culinary heritage. The recipes are set off against sixteen pages of color photographs and hundreds of drawings in color and black and white. And there is a special chapter which shows, in text and pictures, what happens to an elegant firehouse meal when an alarm goes off. Published by Bobbs-Merrill, 1965, stated First Printing. Hardcover with dust jacket in very good condition. Jacket is clean and strong, but does have edge wear and tearing. Jacket is not price-clipped and still shows 1965 publishing price of $8.50.
