Review

"Shelly Lindgren and Matthew Accarrino have composed a book filled with their inspirations based on Italian regional cuisine and wines. It gives us a powerful insight into what makes SPQR one of San Francisco's favorite restaurants. It makes me wish I lived close by."
--Thomas Keller, The French Laundry
"Shelley Lindgren has done it again. First, there was her restaurant A16 and a stunning cookbook emerged from that still-marvelous restaurant. Then came "SPQR." With the remarkable talent of chef Matthew Accarrino, it has become one of San Francisco's
finest restaurants, bar none. If you haven't yet heard of SPQR and Matthew Accarrino, trust me, you soon will. This book shows why."
--Matt Kramer, author and Wine Spectator columnist
"Matthew brings a sense of elegance and refinement to Italian cooking that seems at once natural and yet revelatory. There is a humanistic element to the cooking at SPQR that in concert with Shelley's wine service, creates a memorable and warm experience. I always look forward to returning."
--Christopher Kostow, chef, The Restaurant at Meadowood
"I am a staunch traditionalist when it comes to Italian cuisine, yet I love Matthew Accarrino's modern Italian cooking at SPQR. His food is Italian in spirit but cooked in the region (paese) of California, using local ingredients, contemporary techniques, and infusing the food with soul and sophistication. Shelley Lindgren is my go-to goddess for Italian wine. A charming and delightful educator, she has extensive knowledge of Italian wine making and wine makers. But even more important, she seeks out little known wines from small regional producers. I learn and taste something new with every visit to SPQR."
--Joyce Goldstein, chef, author, and culinary consultant
"With well-thought-out recipes and little known wine pairings, discover a perfect
balance of contemporary flavor and technique with a soulfulness that is respectful of tradition. Through Matthew's passion and experience, "SPQR" will challenge you to become a better cook!"
--Rick Moonen, executive chef and owner of rm Seafood
Praise for A16: Food + Wine:
"This is a cook's cookbook; it deserves a quiet season filled with long chilly nights, the ideal time to enjoy its gutsy dishes."
--Gourmet

I have several cookbooks for different cuisine (e.g., French, Mediterranean, etc.) and have made some very nice meals from them. However, this SPQR is NOT for the "Home" Chef! You have basically be an Executive Chef somewhere in order to make most of the dishes!!
