Mission Street Food

Item Details

From one of the most exciting and innovative restaurants in San Francisco comes a book that pushes the cookbook form forward--part story, part manifesto, littered with recipes, and brimming over with illustrations and photos.Mission Street Food is a restaurant. But it's also a charitable organization, a taco truck, a burger stand, and a clubhouse for inventive cooks tucked inside an unassuming Chinese take-out place. In all its various incarnations, it upends traditional restaurant conventions, in search of moral and culinary satisfaction.Like Mission Street Food itself, this book is more than one thing: it's a cookbook featuring step-by-step photography and sly commentary, but it's also the memoir of a madcap project that redefined the authors' marriage and a city's food scene. Along with stories and recipes, you'll find an idealistic business plan, a cheeky manifesto, and thoughtful essays on issues ranging from food pantries to fried chicken. Plus, a comic.Ultimately, 'Mission Street Food: Recipes and Ideas from an Improbable Restaurant' presents an iconoclastic vision of cooking and eating in twenty-first century America.
