“There are certain Bay Area landmarks that mean so much to so many. And one of the most special must surely be the Cliff House in San Francisco. A new work, ‘The San Francisco Cliff House’…is a centennial celebration of this spectacular and historic edifice…. I was spellbound with the many fascinating photographs. And I was nothing short of ecstatic when I saw several reproductions of early postcards I have in my personal collection. What sent me over the edge, however, was seeing recipes for restaurant favorites like Crab Louis. I just wanted to jump in my car and head to the shrine for an all-day picnic.”

“a lively text.”
