Cooking the California Way

The NYT Dining & Wine section takes a look at Sunset magazine’s role in promoting the California life style. The article says that Sunset can be thought of as “the Betty White of food magazines,” getting a new life after being eclipsed by celebrity chefs and flashy cooking shows because of

… its extreme dedication to regional food, its reputation among readers for reliable recipes honed in a skilled test kitchen and its forays into the D.I.Y. ethos of backyard beekeeping and home vinegar making has helped with a rehabilitation.

A new collection of recipes from the magazine came out this week. It was not reviewed prepub and is not owned by most libraries we checked.
