A beautiful cookbook sure to appeal to anyone who relishes the good things in life--full of the elegantly earthy fare that has made PlumpJack's restaurants some of the most popular and highly acclaimed in Northern California

The PlumpJack name is synonymous with great wine, delicious food, and fine living. Its Napa Valley winery produces top-rated Cabernet. Its eight restaurants--including Balboa Cafe, PlumpJack Cafe, and Jack Falstaff--have won renown in the great dining capital of San Francisco, as well as in the Napa Valley wine country and the world class ski destination of Squaw Valley. Its resorts in Napa and Squaw Valley are ranked among the most luxurious in the country.

Now The PlumpJack Cookbook brings together the most coveted recipes from all eight restaurants in a book that captures the allure and down-to-earth sophistication of everything PlumpJack and features:

• 75 favorite recipes, including the famous Balboa Burger, as well as Roasted Squash Soup with Sage, Crab Cakes with Avocado Salsa, Goose Breast with Red Wine Gravy and Wild Rice, and Bananas Foster Brioche Pudding

• stunning color photographs that spotlight the alluring dishes and the restaurants' beautiful Northern California locations

• wine recommendations as well as wine-buying tips and a guide to wine-and-food pairing

• a foreword by PlumpJack founder Gavin Newsom, now mayor of San Francisco and, according to Newsweek, one of the five rising stars of the Democratic Party
