This is a reader's cookbook. Yes, it has lots of recipes from old California and new, but it also looks at California through the eyes of early Anglos through excerpts from their books and from the authors novels. When did you last use the freshly butchered stomach of a goat to develop the rennet for your cheese recipe? It's full of historical cocina (kitchen) methods which are fascinating.
