A recipe organizer for home cooks from San Francisco's beloved Omnivore Books on Food, featuring ample storage and writing space, handy charts, charming vintage art, and culinary references.

Less than two years after opening Omnivore Books on Food, Celia Sack has become an integral part of the food-and-wine culture of the Bay Area--and Omnivore is arguably the most influential cookbook store in the country. With The Omnivore's Recipe Keeper, Celia has created a practical, charming, and highly collectable recipe collector, assembled with the same thoughtfulness and insight as her famed book collection. It contains strong, well-made folders and plentiful space for pasting or writing recipes, as well as wonderful vintage images culled from 19th- and 20th-century cookbooks. Also featuring helpful charts and diagrams, as well as guest recipes from culinary stars (Frank Bruni, Ken Furusawa, David Lebovitz, Deborah Madison, Cindy Pawlcyn, Karen Solomon, Frank Stitt, and Paula Wolfert), the recipe keeper serves as a go-to reference and kitchen companion, and a must-have for the legions of Celia's fans.
