Overview

Most Chicagoans have sampled a variety of the ethnic delicacies available in local restaurants. But too often home cooks can't find the items they need to prepare these dishes, even though they are readily available. There are plenty of guidebooks for the diner, but none for the chef. A Cook's Guide to Chicago aims to fill this gap, revealing that huge ethnic supermarkets, restaurant supply warehouses, and gourmet specialty stores are easy to find...if you know where to look. In a lively and easy-to-follow manner, A Cook's Guide to Chicago shows readers how to find the ingredients and tools necessary to prepare classic gourmet dishes and authentic ethnic foods in their own homes. Each section includes store listings, cooking tips, recipes, and "Top 10 ingredients" lists to give readers a jump start on turning their kitchens into dens of worldly cuisine. Marilyn Pocius shares the culinary expertise she acquired in chef school and through years of footwork around the city searching for the perfect ingredients. A Cook's Guide to Chicago offers advice on:
  • Where to get your knives sharpened and buy cheap professional equipment.
  • Where you can find everything from live fish to bulk spices, and exotic produce such as lita squash and banana blossoms.
  • Preparing dishes including green papaya salad and pomegranate chicken.
  • Taking "Delicious Day Trips" to neighborhood shopping havens.
  • Where to find everything you need and lots of things you didn't know you did.
This is a handbook no Chicago cook should be without!
