About this item

The White Dog Cafe has earned interational acclaim for its exceptional food, innovative menus, and commitment to community involvement and social responsibility. Now, in their first cookbook, Proprietor Judy Wicks and Chef Kevin von Klause share 250 kitchen-tested recipes for their internationally inspired American cuisine, along with tales of adventure from more than 15 years of implementing the White Dog's philosophy of 'eating well while doing good.' They accomplish this by using the freshest produce available, buying it from local farmers, sponsoring and interacting with sister restaurants around the world and at home, and opening up their restaurant as a forum for lectures and debates on social issues from public education and environmental protection to bioethics and international peace.
