Looks like Secret Breakfast won't be a secret forever. Mission ice cream maker Humphry Slocombe has a contract with Chronicle Books for Humphry Slocombe Ice Cream Book, written by Slocombe's Jake Godby and Sean Vahey with the assistance of Inside Scoop editor Paolo Lucchesi.

Part tell-all, part cookbook, it'll combine 40 recipes for making Humphry at home, plus what Vahey calls "stories of our start, death threats, and the full behind-the-scenes of the good, bad, and ugly about Humphry Slocombe." Vahey and Frankie Frankeny will provide photography.

A specific publication date has not been set, but Vahey tells SFoodie the book should be out at the end of the year.

    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year.

Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
