For your Friday reassurance that yes, there is goodness and humanity in this world, we bring you a look at the new Arts & Eats cookbook, which releases today as a collaboration between Mission-based nonprofit Creativity Explored and local restaurants who've shared their recipes for a cause.
With contributions from 20 Spot, Bar Tartine, Beretta, Bi-Rite, Central Kitchen, Delfina, Farina, Flour + Water, Foreign Cinema, Locanda, Mission Chinese, Range, St. Vincent, Trick Dog and more, the book represents the best and brightest of Mission eateries. (Frances, located in the heart of the Castro, is also featured.) Recipes like chilled white corn soup from Frances, Chef Melissa Perello and chingqing chicken wings from Mission Chinese's Danny Bowien are accompanied by artwork created at Creativity Explored, the much-beloved organization that provides artists with developmental disabilities the opportunity to work as visual artists.
Printed and bound in San Francisco, the book is a delightful collection for a good cause, benefitting both Creativity Explored and the nonprofit animal rescue Creative Rescue. Scroll through for a taste of the artwork.
