But first, an introduction to CHARLIE’S NEW BOOK!

Recipes and Rambles that made Adele’s a Nevada hot spot

Forty years of cuisine and history as told by Chef Charlie Abowd

Carson City, Nevada – March 21, 2023.

Nevada politics, history and fabulous recipes combine for an entertaining memoir by renowned Chef Charlie Abowd, in the long-anticipated, “Recipes and Rambles that made Adele’s a Nevada hot spot,” is now available for pre-order.  This “James Beard Award” winning chef has spent his life immersed in his three passions – cuisine, music, and politics. Growing up in the tumult of the 1960s San Francisco music scene mixed with Vietnam War protests and activism, while learning the art of cooking at his parents’ Bay Area restaurants, formed Charlie’s future.

He promoted concerts and provided stage lighting for the biggest bands of the time, while living in the Santa Cruz mountains. This passion continued throughout his life.  During its iconic forty-year run, Adele’s Restaurant, and later, Café at Adele’s in Carson City, became legendary for fine dining, musicians, and celebrities that visited, and where Nevada’s movers and shakers gathered.

Around its tables and over delicious cuisine, business people and elected representatives made deals and negotiated legislation. Adele’s played a pivotal role in bringing people together to benefit the greater Nevada good. Charlie has seen it all and now shares his stories interspersed with his patrons’ favorite recipes, some taken from Nevada Appeal archives and others published for the first time.  The book features a forward and farewell by Nevada journalist Jon Ralston, owner of The Nevada Independent and images by some of Nevada’s top photojournalists and photographers.
