Staff Reviews


There’s something really special about Foreign Cinema in San Francisco—and it’s not only that they project movies on the walls of their outdoor courtyard. I have dined there numerous times and we keep going back because the food is simply delicious. Foreign Cinema’s menu is diverse but their food is seasonal and focused, and that’s exactly what you’ll find in their cookbook. From beloved Italian White Butter Beans and Grilled Broccoli Rabe to Magnificent Seven cocktails and stellar brunch dishes, Foreign Cinema’s food and drink are spot on—no movie required.

Description


Foreign Cinema opened its doors in 1999 in the Mission District of San Francisco, pioneers in transforming the neighborhood into a culinary destination. The dramatic experience of dining in the sweeping atrium, where films screen nightly, still enchant visitors 18 years later. Now, for the first time, chef-owners Gayle Pirie and John Clark share the best from their distinctive North African, California-Mediterranean menu.

Featuring 125 signature dishes, the book spans Pirie and Clark's award-winning brunch favorites like Champagne Omelet and Persian Bloody Mary, cocktail hour with Lavender Baked Goat Cheese in Fig Leaves, and dinner fare including a Five-Spice Duck Breast with Cassis Sauce and Madras Curry Fried Chicken with Spiced Honey, alongside instructions for how to blend spice staples like Ras el Hanout. With rich storytelling throughout, Pirie and Clark offer home cooks a chance to take the restaurant into their own kitchen.
