Brigit Binns Eating Up the West Coast

Brigit’s latest cookbook “Eating Up the West Coast: The best road trips, recipes, and restaurants from California to Washington” is her twenty-ninth book. With her dog, Stella, Binns visited more than 75 cafes, steakhouses, diners, upscale eateries, breakfast joints, and dives. Divided into four sections—Southern California, Northern California, Oregon, and Washington—each offers distinct routes showcasing the West’s “unmatched coastal beauty.”





Publishers Weekly said, of Binns’s new book, Eating Up the West Coast – “Author Brigit Binns and the editors of Sunset magazine have a sun-splashed, gastronomic guidebook to the ultimate West Coast culinary road trip.”

Her last book, The New Wine Country Cookbook: Recipes from California’s Central Coast celebrates the food and winemakers of California’s fastest-growing wine region: “Paso Robles is a region full of mavericks and innovators. Utterly unpretentious, it’s the sort of place where people from other regions in California gravitate when they find themselves tired of the too-slick, too-pricey scenes in neighboring wine regions. French wine nobility cultivate vineyards next to fourth-generation cowboys, and for every sleek new wine bar, there’s a cowboy saloon with moose heads hung on the walls.”




Brigit lives happily full time in California’s Central Coast wine country. Her black-and-white dog Stella and fabulous husband, Casey (aka the Wine Spectator-award-winning Paso Wine Man), together make her life most eminently worth living.

During ten years that she spent living in Europe, Brigit graduated from England’s Tante Marie cooking school, lived and catered in Spain for three years, and edited the Costa del Sol’s English-language magazine.
