Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Crunchy napa cabbage slaw

    • louie734 on January 07, 2014

      Woah - This is a huge amount of vegetables, and there are only 2 of us. I made a scant full recipe of the veggies and we ate the whole thing (dressing the 2nd half before eating) in practically 2 sittings. Don't skip the peas (I used snaps). Might try swapping out the nuts for sesame or honey roasted almonds, crushed, for a pop of sweetness, or using peanuts, which the salad faintly tastes like. Get ready to make this one again! (Recipe online at http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/crunchy-napa-cabbage-slaw-10000001010541/)

  • Delfina's broccoli rabe pizza

    • louie734 on January 07, 2014

      Made this on our go-to Artisan-Bread-in-5 crust quite a few times. My husband hates it - he despises bitter greens - but there's leftovers just for me! The fresh mozz+cream+buttermilk combo is a nice white sauce. I scaled it down from the 3-pizza-yield to top just my pie (be generous with the liquid conversions for the sauce, and reserve a little to drizzle on top after the oven). The white sauce would be nice with other toppings like mushrooms, chicken, pine nuts. (found online at http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/delfinas-broccoli-rabe-pizza-10000001955932/)

    • britt on March 14, 2012

      I didn't make the crust - I used a Reinhart recipe instead, but otherwise followed the recipe. The result was delicious. A favorite use for broccoli raab.

  • Smoky beef-and-bacon chili

    • Rinshin on February 16, 2014

      Like many of you, I've tried countless chili recipes including my own variations. This recipe is almost perfection. Tastes great the first day but continues to improve next day. My go to chili recipe now.

  • Biscuit-topped chicken potpies

    • rivergait on November 19, 2011

      Terrific...adds mushrooms for meatiness, and dices veggies quite small. I used puff pastry square lapping over sides for a crust. I stretched 1 cup leftover chicken into 3 very large potpies.

  • Thousand-seed pilaf

    • Thredbende on May 25, 2013

      The flavors in this sophisticated pilaf keep dancing in your mouth. Serve it with something simple and enjoy the leftovers with gently fried eggs the next day. The first step requires toasting the spices in oil. Have the washed grains handy to dump in when the spices get fragrant; they pop like popcorn and the grains get added as soon as the spices start trying to exit.

Publishers Text

When it comes to food, the West is the starting point of many of this nation's food trends (think gourmet pizza. fish tacos, the California roll, smoothies, and planked salmon) and the source of so much of our fresh produce. And for more than 110 years, Sunset has been at the forefront of chronicling both the traditional dishes that define the cooking of the West as well as the culinary inventiveness that keeps it vibrant. For The Sunset Cookbook, Sunset food editor Margo True has selected more than 1,000 recipes that represent the best of the West, dishes that showcase a passion for local ingredients (crab, salmon, artichokes, garlic, berries and fruits), a tantalizing array of ethnic influences (Mexican, Native American, Asian), a love of the outdoors (the grilling chapter contains more than 100 recipes), and an ease of living that demands that recipes be kept simple without compromising on taste.

  • More than 1,000 recipes from the premier magazine of the Western lifestyle
  • Recipes are reality tested - tested in the Sunset test kitchen then by home cooks with no special training.
  • Do-ahead info provided to make meal and party planning a snap
  • Nutritional data included for every recipe
  • Beautifully packaged in a high-quality, hardcover format, The Sunset Cookbook, is the perfect book to find on holiday gift tables
  • The Sunset Cookbook is a surefire classic and promises to have steady backlist sales for years to come.
