Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

The Chicago Homegrown Cookbook
Local. Seasonal. Sustainable. Farm fresh.
 
These days, it’s hard to pick up a restaurant menu in Chicago that doesn’t boast at least one of those adjectives.
But to the farmers and chefs profiled in these pages, these are more than buzzwords. They are a way of life. These are farmers who rise before the roosters to bring fresh produce, meats, and cheeses to area farmers’ markets. These are chefs who kick off the day with an early trip to the market and wrap it up in the wee hours of the night, after feeding hundreds of appreciative diners.
 
In The Chicago Homegrown Cookbook, you’ll find the stories behind some of Chicago’s most buzz-worthy chefs, including Rick Bayless of Frontera, Rick Gresh of Primehouse, Rob Levitt and Allie Levitt of The Butcher and Larder, and Mindy Segal of Hot Chocolate. The chefs featured here work with area farmers to bring the freshest locally grown, sustainable foods to their menus. More than 70 outstanding recipes from these dedicated chefs and farmers are included in this book. We hope you’ll enjoy bringing a little homegrown food into your own kitchen.

From the Back Cover

To those farmers who have provided myself and others with the opportunity to serve great-tasting, super-fresh local foods: cheers.
