Nothing could be finer than eating at the diner

Thats what Pacific magazine said about the Streamliner Diner. The New Orleans Times-Picayunne said they served up the best breakfast that several foods writers thought they had encountered in some time. And once you taste these recipes, we think youll agree.

The Streamliner is a homey little café thats been praised by food critics from Los Angeles to New York to Germany. You can join the happy crown one of two ways: take the Winslow Ferry to Bainbridge Island, head up the hill, turn left at the stoplight, and pull up the first business you see. Thatll be the Streamliner. Or, you can create the diners down-home gourmet feelings in your very own kitchen with the hundred-plus recipes in this book.

This is diner food as youve never had it before using wholesome, economical, readily available ingredients to create imaginative, delicious meals. Yes, you can have such stand-bys as Friday Meatloaf or Dads Chicken Pot Pie, but you might also want to try Hunters Stew over Polenta, Artichoke Heart-Brie Turnovers, or Cream of Wild Mushroom Soup and, if youve brought a hearty appetite to the table, top it all off with a big slice of Julies Chocolate Caramel pie.

The Streamliner Diner Cookbook collects all the best recipes from this unique restaurant for muffins, breads, coffee cakes, soups, salads, main dishes, pies, cakes and much, much more. This is down-home gone downtown, homestyle food like Mom never made it. And it sure is good.
