About this title


1875 to 1915 are years in the memorable era when San Francisco established its reputation of being the finest eating places in the world. Frances de Talavera Berger and John Parke Curtis described those years of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries when day and night merges and daylight became the glow of gaslight that lined the streets. In those days, six men went around and created new standards for San Franciscan cuisines. Black and white photographs from that era plus the recipes and some fine culinary secrets are written within these pages for all to read. Many fine recipe such as Homemade Tartar Sauce, San Francisco Clam Chowder, Frederick The Great's Beef Tenderloin, and others are features therein to remember the era when San Francisco established it's reputation
