With every one seemingly running around the mall like a bunch of crazies...
I thought it would be fun to do a few posts about some things under $50 dollars that are easy to get and make really wonderful gifts
We try to travel up the coast of California at least a couple of times a year...
just to explore and try new things.
There's nothing like a good road trip to get the "bugs" out.
Our favorite spot...
And every time we find our selves there...we eat here....The Big Sur Bakery
This is not just a cook book but more of a story...a year in the life of a restaurant...
It's about the bakers, the cooks, the growers, the fishermen
and the magical place that is Big Sur
The restaurant is a humble little house, next to a gas station...
Funky, a bit 60's groovy and just plain full of wonderful home cooked, thoughtful food.
I can honestly say, the best Pizza I have ever eaten I ate here this fall, on the front deck at sunset!
The cookbook is $40 dollars and can be found on amazon or you can buy a signed copy through the restaurant here. The menus are simple and the stories are both funny and intriguing. I have many times wondered how people end up in these really amazing spots...and this book answers that question!
Here is a link to an older post about Big Sur, just in case you are up for a great road trip!
More fun stuff on the way
