The Cookbooks of Southern California
California is lucky enough to have some of the best food in the world, so it's only natural that some fabulous cookbooks originate here, too. Seeing as it's National Cookbook Month, we put together this collection of books celebrating Southern California recipes - our restaurants have some great tricks up their toques that they shared within these pages. What are you favorite local cookbooks? Tell us in the comments below.
