Chronicle Books Warehouse Sale Starts Thursday

Categories: Cookbooks
Cover price: $19.95. Sale price: $6.98
Chronicle Books' annual warehouse sale starts tomorrow. From Thursday through Saturday, the San Francisco publishing house will be selling hundreds of titles from its back catalog ― for 65 percent off. (Note: The sale only takes place at the store located in Chronicle's SOMA headquarters.)

Because SFoodie only lines up early for estate sales if we've seen something we liked in the Craigslist preview pics, we called Chronicle to find out which cookbooks will be on sale. The woman we spoke to looked over her inventory and gave us a partial list:

$16.95 - 65% = $5.93!
The Heirloom Tomato Cookbook
The Wine Deck
Let's Cook Japanese Food
Luscious Chocolate Desserts
Mini Bar: Tequila
The Bartender's Deck
Big Book of Easy Suppers
Big Book of Potlucks
Coffee Cakes
Four Seasons Pasta
New Whole Grains Cookbook
Pot Pies
Quick and Easy Vietnamese

If we were particularly OCD bargain-hunters (we admit nothing), we'd cross-check the titles on the publisher's Web site to gather more advance intel. Basically, our informant concluded, the titles on sale are ones that came out a year or more ago. Nothing from the past few season's releases will receive the discount.

Chronicle Books Headquarters Store 680 Second St. (at Townsend), 537-4200
Hours: 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Thur.-Fri., 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Sat.
