"Tramonto's seventh book showcases steak and the "friends" (sauces, glazes, and side dishes) that complement it. Readers can feast their eyes on full page close-ups of finished dishes like grilled T-bone steaks alongside a bright green streak of pesto as well as smaller photos highlighting the cooking process. Pictures of Tramonto shopping, cooking, eating, and relaxing with friends and family make it easy to imagine what it might be like to spend an afternoon with the famous Chicago restaurateur." --Library Journal
"A couple of porterhouse steaks grilled to medium-rare and topped with a Gorgonzola crust rendered us speechless with delight" --Chicago Sun-Times
"Rick Tramonto's seventh cookbook, Steak with Friends: At Home, with Rick Tramonto, takes you inside the north suburban Chicago home of the executive chef/partner of Tru and Tramonto's Steak & Seafood. The cover depicts the author with his family, seated by a platter of hefty steaks and "friends"-natural pairings with steak-in the chef's ample home kitchen." --Publisher's Weekly
