The go-to guide for bringing the West Coast vibe home with 125 fresh recipes from everyone’s favorite California food blogger
In What’s Gaby Cooking Everyday California, Gaby Dalkin shares more than 125 of her favorite simple and fresh recipes and offers a glimpse into what it’s like to “go coastal.” It’s about always having something tasty to eat, thanks to handy and delicious pantry staples (avocado oil! quinoa! limes! dark chocolate!), as well as an arsenal of easy and healthy recipes, like Chimichurri Cauliflower Rice Bowl with Grilled Fish, Taco Skillet Bake, and Street Corn Pizza. The book covers all the staples—avocado toast, grain bowls, greens, carbs, healthy mains, cocktails, and more.
For Gaby, California is not so much a place but a state of mind, and this cookbook proves that no matter where you live, you can still apply the same philosophy. All it takes is finding the freshest produce you can, stocking up on some versatile pantry staples, and keeping flavors and techniques simple. After that, the only thing left to do is kick back, pour yourself a California Girl Margarita, and listen for those ocean waves.
“Gaby makes California both a state of mind and a decadently fresh platter of eats!”

“I’m not a girl and if I was odds are I wouldn’t come close to qualifying as a ‘California’ girl. But gosh-darn it, now that Gaby’s book is finally here I can eat like one. I’ve been a fan of her recipes for years, and this book delivers on what I love about Gaby’s food: flavor, variety, nutrition, and a vibrancy that’s ‘totally awesome.’ See what I did there?”
