Book Description

Marilou Suszko is the author of two cookbooks: Farms & Foods of Ohio: From Garden Gate to Dinner Plate, and The Locavore’s Kitchen. As a food writer, her work appears in local, regional, and national publications. A culinary instructor and a frequent guest speaker, Marilou’s career has revolved around food for more than twenty-five years but her most valuable experience comes from a lifetime of enjoying wonderful food. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Inside Flap

Chef Michael Symon grew up in a Greek and Sicilian family. The Cleveland native creates boldly flavored, deeply satisfying dishes at his four restaurants in America’s heartland: Lola, Lolita, Roast and B Spot. He also shares his exuberant, approachable cooking style and infectious laugh with viewers as an Iron Chef on the Food Network. Since being named a Best New Chef by Food & Wine magazine in 1998, Michael and his restaurants have been awarded numerous honors. In 2010, he was the first chef ever to host the annual Farm Aid benefit concert. Bon Appetit magazine included B Spot on their list of “Top 10 Best New Burger Joints.” B Spot’s Fat Doug burger won the People’s Choice Award at the SoBe Wine & Food Festival. In 2009, Michael earned The James Beard Foundation Award for Best Chef Great Lakes and the Detroit Free Press named Roast “Restaurant of the Year.” In 2000, Gourmet magazine chose Lola as one of “America’s Best Restaurants.” --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Hardcover
This is possibly a book with limited appeal if you've never heard of Cleveland's West Side Market and if it does not have some special association to you... yet if you like just reading about new things and learning about different cultures, this still could be a thing to consider.

Cleveland's West Side Market opened for business in 1912, is one of the oldest city-owned retail markets in the USA (there are not that many left either) and is said to be a nationally-significant architectural treasure. This book is a complete history of the market to date and also looks at many of the diverse vendors who have helped make this market a rather special place.

This is a richly-illustrated book with a lot of great looking photographs both "old" and "new" that accompany an engaging, interesting text. It is clear that an "outsider" might not get as much out of the text than someone who has grown up with the market close by, but the market does not feel that much of a stranger when reading through the text either. Throughout the book are a number of "memories" of both stall-holders and Cleveland shoppers alike which helps place additional "meat" on the bones, so to speak.

It was particularly interesting to follow the building of the market and to see how things were not necessarily clear-cut and trouble-free. Often such retrospectives tend to gloss over past problems and focus on just the positives so this was a welcome change.

We visited the West Side Market nine years ago already, but we still remember how much we enjoyed it. This book is a real treat; the photos are terrific - including many vintage photos - and the write-up is quite interesting & informative. For those who live in metro Cleveland - or even for those of us who have only visited - this book is well worth owning.

The West Side Market is wonderful. My family and I grew up shopping at the West Side Market. The sights and sounds and different nationalities are so interesting. The book is very well written and catches the flavors, smells and people who are vendors at the West Side Market. I love the book.

I chose this ratting because I enjoyed the history and knowledge about the market. The personal stories from the shop owners and customers made it seem more real.
