The Children's Home Society of California began more than a century ago after two grieving medical missionaries returned from Jamaica, where they had buried their only son. To help deal with their sorrow, Dr. and Mrs. J. R. Townsend dedicated their lives to needy children and founded CHS in the Bradbury Building in downtown Los Angeles in 1891.

You'll no doubt find many familiar sounding dishes among the more than 300 kitchen-tested recipes in this cookbook. Most are for good, simple fare and are easy enough to be prepared by even novice cooks. Some include a nutritional analysis. The editors' goal was to select "recipes that capture the spirit and life style that make California so unique." The dishes also reflect a mix of ethnic cuisine and draw on the bounty of produce grown in our state. Chapter headings are typical--appetizers, soups, breads, seafood, poultry, meat, etc.--but each opens with some basic wine suggestions.
