California B&B Recipes

The California Association of Bed & Breakfast Inns (CABBI) is the largest and most influential bed & breakfast inn association in the nation.  Check out their California Bed and Breakfast Cookbook.

You will find all the delectable flavors of California cuisine from quality-certified California bed and breakfast inns. Entertain with confidence and praise thanks to the owners and chefs who have shared their award-winning recipes.

Delight your guests, family, and friends with tasty recipes like: California Poachies, Occidental Eggs Benedict, Persimmon Orange Nut Bread, Old Yacht Club Inn Beer Bread, Best Friends Chocolate Cake, Rainbow Beet Salad, Mexican Soufflé and more!

Each recipe was carefully selected to tell the story of the inn from where it is served. Some recipes are house specialties, others are family traditions. Some dishes include locally-grown ingredients from an inn’s region, while other dishes are the reason guests return time and again.

The bed and breakfast inn was born of sharing food with friends. Regardless of where your B&B is located, enjoy these CABBI favorites with your own guests.


Do You Have Enough Recipes For Your Own Cookbook?




If you have had your own Bed and Breakfast for a while now, you have probably collected enough recipes for your own cookbook.  You can check out other recipes posted online and tested by other inn keepers across the country.


Some bed and breakfast cookbooks are collections of recipes from their own state.  The Michigan Bed and Breakfast Cookbook and the California Bed and Breakfast Cookbook are two examples.  Find out if your state has a Bed and Breakfast Association with a published cookbook.

Some bed and breakfasts sell their very own cookbook to their guests.  Then the guests have a reminder of their stay and can try to cook some of the same foods that had when they stayed at your bed and breakfast.

Feel free to post some of your recipes in your blog. You may actually get some web traffic from people searching for a recipe. They can serendipitously come to your website and instantly think about the possibility of staying at your bed and breakfast.
