The Frittata Affair: Adventures in Four-Star Dining at Home
Not your traditional cookbook, author Judy Cook Pochini
helps readers achieve elegance in dining at home without
hours of kitchen toil by providing an inside look into the
methods used by an Italian-American family of master
chefs with a rich history in the food business.
In more than 20 memoir-style anecdotes, the author discloses
the secrets of the Pochini family’s signature Northern
Italian-Genovese cuisine that fuses old-country Italian
dishes with the cutting-edge ingredients available in
San Francisco and purveyed for 37 years at the popular
Pochini’s Restaurant on Front Street in the City by the Bay. Capturing the special taste
of dining and entertaining in the city’s gourmet-rich culture, the author gives readers
the flavor of San Francisco from times past to times present.
Along with Judy’s stories, there are 200 recipes with gourmet appeal. The detailed
instructions are suitable for beginning and advanced home cooks alike. Only a few
recipes call for intricate procedures; most are simple. Also included are 18 suggested
menus, a kitchen equipment checklist, and tips on where to find ingredients.
Judy is a former editor of trade publications for Sunset Magazine. She is an initiate
of Delta Delta Chapter at the U of California–Santa Barbara, where she earned her
bachelor’s degree in business; she subsequently earned a master’s in journalism from
the U of California–Berkeley.
