Review

In the Kitchen with Cleveland's Favorite Chefs is a celebration of some of Cleveland's most interesting chef personalities. Maria Isabella has captured a variety of flavorful, inspiring dishes that we mere  mortals can now finally replicate in our own kitchens.
Carla Snyder -- coauthor of the James Beard-nominated The Big Book of Appetizers

Cleveland has become a food town with great restaurants and farmers' markets. Maria Isabella offers us the opportunity to learn secrets from Cleveland's many talented chefs.
Parker Bosley -- chef and noted local-food advocate

"These are the premier chefs working in Cleveland today, the ones who have made names for themselves and who have a food sense that stems from integrity. Maria Isabella shows home cooks that they can, with a short list of ingredients and a quick timeline, execute a good food experience on a par with a professionally rendered product."--Charlene Kalo, Owner --The Culinaire

It's no surprise that going out and supporting any of our many wonderful local restaurants tops the list of favorite Cleveland activities. But for as much as we enjoy dining out, cooking at home as a family is just as enjoyable. As I was flipping through these pages, I noted several dishes that I can t wait to re-create! These recipes are from chefs we know and admire it s truly a fantastic collection that anyone would enjoy, Clevelander or not. What fun it will be to bring a little bit of our favorite chefs home into our kitchen!
Michelle Venorsky --blogger, Cleveland Foodie

Keeping it real in C-Town! Nice to see all my hometown pals (D Amico, Boccuzzi, Sawyer, and Symon) recipes in one place as well as some new chefs I need to check out!
Andrew Carmellini --Chef, author, and restaurateur

From the Author

I'm extremely proud -- and excited -- to showcase the best Cleveland has to offer the food world. This compilation of my city's extraordinary culinary talent is something I've wanted to write for many years...and am thrilled to see it finally come to fruition. I hope all readers, Clevelanders and otherwise, find it as interesting and helpful as I do. All the recipes and tips come straight from the pros themselves. It just doesn't get any better than that.

Especially to the restaurants of these amazing Cleveland chefs.

How happy (and proud) I was when I made a sauce that tasted just as I remembered from one of my favorite places!

Every recipe is so easy to replicate and Maria is telling the truth: these menus can be done in an hour.

I originally bought the book as a gift for an ex-Clevelander, but after sneaking a peek, or two . . . or three, I bought another copy for myself. I loved the pages where the author details how the chefs got their start. An overwhelming number of them learned their love of food from their families.

Even though the recipes are what our hometown food heroes would whip up for friends and family in an hour, they are far from run-of-the-mill. There are recipes that would make my Italian grandma proud and recipes that I'm sure Grandma would never have even have dreamed of. Unusual combinations of ingredients, new ways to make old favorites,this book offers both. And you don't have to be a Clevelander to enjoy it!

Any true Foodie knows the talent and diversity that Cleveland chefs have to offer. We've seen them on TV, read about them in the most respected publications, and now we can bring them into our kitchens.

Not only do we get to try the recipes that have put these chefs on the map, the author has written wonderful bios to introduce the reader to the chef's background, culinary and entertaining tips; its as if she's performing a personal introduction before the chef walks into your kitchen.

I've tried 11 recipes so far (this includes sauces for the dishes), and made two full meals. The recipes are easy to follow for the average person who just likes to play in the kitchen. Some are so easy, even a beginner can make an award-winning dinner. Some recipes may seem a bit challenging for the novice, but not too overwhelming, just enough to inspire a seasoned home chef to try something new. Thankfully, the author also has video tutorials on her website/blog on some techniques. Having moved a bit further away from Cleveland, I miss going to some of my favorite restaurants as often as I'd like. How happy (and proud) I was when I made a sauce that tasted just as I remembered from one of my favorite places!

I love the author's theme, asking the chefs what would they serve if company was coming over in an hour. They contributed recipes for an entire meal, from the appetizer to dessert. This makes things simple for the host, as the combination of flavors and textures have already been tested in the best restaurants. Beer, wine and cocktail suggestions also accompany each menu, so you are sure to have memorable dinner party. However, the author also included a valuable 'mix and match' page, so you can customize your own menu.

Many vegetarian recipes, some vegan and some can easily be made just as tasty without the meat.

This is a great gift for anyone who loves Cleveland or loves fantastic recipes that are easy to follow

I had a family of 7 children...I have cooked and cooked and cooked for all my married life of 36 years. Now - I love restaurant gift cards! Especially to the restaurants of these amazing Cleveland chefs. So I drool over the recipes and hope to eat something similar...out...at their restaurants. BUT the chef bios in this book are worth the cost of the book...seriously, Maria has captured each one perfectly! And always good to drop a story about how a chef started pursuing his/her passion at any point in his/her life to your kids...as they try to discover their way in life! Buy this book...amazing!
