Stories Behind 30 Great Hometown Bites
by Monica Eng; David Hammond
Before picking up this title, the main thing that I knew about Chicago food was Deep Dish Pizza. Clearly there is so much more.
This book is about that pizza and twenty-nine other dishes. Some of these include Akutagawa, Chicken Corn Roll Tamale, the Chicago Hot Dog, Jibarito, Jim Shoe, Maxwell Street Polish, Mother-in-Law and many more. This book will be so enjoyed by those lucky enough to live in, or who can travel to Chicago, or foodies in general. The pictures and text will make readers hungry. Luckily there are mentions of restaurants where the foods are served. There are also recipes.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the University of Illinois Press for this title. All opinions are my own.
