Editorial Reviews

Review

"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

I'm not a fan of the steakhouse. There's too much testosterone mixed with entitled money in the atmosphere, and most steakhouses really fall down on sides. They think people don't mind spending $100 plus on a piece of beef with a baked potato and a tired vegetable cliche or some salad drowning in blue cheese served as an afterthought. Most people can do any side dish that you find in today's steakhouses right at home, so what's the point of spending all that money. Enter Rick Tramonto, the famous Chicago chef. He's knows his beef and he knows the kinds of crowd-pleasing side dishes that really make a steak dinner the special occasion it really can be. This is a wonderful collection that does include steak classics. Along the way you'll even learn how to replicate the kind of cooking techniques that the steakhouses use to get those amazing cuts of beef to sing on the plate.

First off: this is a really BIG book, and I mean that in the nicest possible way. Secondly, I learned a new trick from it that I wish I'd known years ago (to bake bacon rather than fry it). My experience with this book was a good one from start to finish. Chef Rick Tramonto has been in the restaurant business for 30 years, and owns three Chicago area restaurants: Tru, Tramonto's Steak and Seafood, RT Sushi Bar & Lounge. A James Beard Award winner, a competitor on Top Chef Masters, Top Chef and Iron Chef; he was also named a Top Ten Best New Chefs by Food & Wine magazine in 1994. He has published six cookbooks before 'Steak with Friends.' He's already tested and proven his cooking mettle. This book is meant to bring all he knows, and his experiences as a professional chef, to the home cook. He succeeds quite well at doing so.

"The title of this book says it all: This is about eating steak dinners with good friends and enjoying all that implies," states Tramonto. Except it doesn't stop at steaks. It also includes hot and cold appetizers, salads, soups and sandwiches, fish and seafood, sauces, stocks, dressings, marinades, and syrups, other meat and poultry, side dishes, and desserts. Shew! The book does devote a number of pages to steak, in fact, there are three chapters alone on the subject. There are enough recipes in this book (150) to cook complete meals from starters to desserts for at least a year. (I didn't do the math so maybe it's only six months.)

In addition to the recipes Chef Tramonto throws in many 'how-tos,' and 'abouts' such as 'About Oysters,' followed by 'How To Shuck an Oyster,' or 'Notes on the Steak Recipes,' with 'How to Choose a Great Steak.' Helpful color photographs and diagrams are also sprinkled throughout.

I am an experienced recreational cook and was imnpressed with the television cooking segment by Rick Tramonto and consequently purchased his cookbook, "Steak with Friends." I have since used it for many different recipes and find it to be true to a promise for flavor and uniqueness, and offers a wide variety of dishes - not just meats. This will definitely be one of my favorites in the kitchen for years to come. I love it so much, I purchased five more copies to have on hand as last minute hostess/birthday gifts, etc!

Love Rick Tramonto. Have been to his fablulous restaurant "Tru" in Chicago. I have several of his books and purhased this book for myself and two friends and we all love it! Try the roasted beets with Burrata cheese. It was a huge hit at my cocktail party!
