Known as the American Riviera because of its breathtaking Mediterranean-like views and climate, Santa Barbara enjoys a unique culinary scene, thanks in part to a rich agricultural community. While the most significant culinary boom in recent years is the abundance of winemakers, the area’s food scene is well recognized.
Santa Barbara Chef’s Table is the first cookbook to gather the area’s top chefs and restaurants under one cover. Profiling seventy signature “at home” recipes from forty legendary dining establishments, the book is a celebration of the farm-to-table way of life. With full-color photography throughout that highlights the area’s fabulous dishes, famous chefs, and spectacular vistas, it is the perfect gift for the local resident or the passing tourist, an ode to the city’s vibrant culture and atmosphere.
