Overview

Where schnitzel meets ahi tuna for a beer." --New York Times

In The Berghoff Family Cookbook, the fourth generation of Chicago's Berghoff clan presents traditional favorites from the city's famed Berghoff Restaurant alongside contemporary culinary creations.

The history of Chicago's Berghoff Restaurant spanned three generations and 107 years. It was one of America's oldest family-owned restaurants. To commemorate such a rich culinary history, Carlyn Berghoff and her mother, Jan Berghoff, collected 150 of the restaurant's most popular recipes, including classics such as Creamed Spinach, Berghoff Rye Bread, and Wiener Schnitzel. They paired them up with more contemporary offerings such as the Shrimp Martini, Grilled Vegetables with Red Pepper Aoli, and Brie and Raspberry Grilled Cheese Sandwiches to create The Berghoff Family Cookbook: From Our Table to Yours, Celebrating a Century of Entertaining.

* Recipes are presented alongside tempting four-color photographs and informative sidebars that offer tips on dressing salads, serving soups, pairing culinary flavors, and more.

* The book's introductory narrative tells the Berghoff family's story and introduces the next generation of the Berghoff legacy.

Fourth-generation entrepreneur Carlyn Berghoff operates her own catering company, Artistic Events, out of the famous Chicago building at 17 West Adams. She has also opened 17/West at the Berghoff, more casual fare is still offered at the downstairs Cafe, and the Berghoff Cafe still operates out of locations at O'Hare International and Midway airports.

    Recreating a holiday meal tradition

    I was delighted to find this book filled with recipes from the Berghoff Restaurant in Chicago. My sister and I celebrated the Christmas holidays with lunch at Berghoff. Recipes from our favorite meals are all included with easy to follow recipes. Enjoy!

    Was a great restaurant!

    If the recipes in the book turn out like the food served in the restaurant then this book is a must have. I grew up in Indiana and went to the Berghoff as a young kid and on till it closed. Miss them terribly but hope the recipes in this book will help the memories continue. Who knows.....maybe one day they'll reopen.
