The past 25 years has seen Chicago transformed from a heartland stronghold of meat and potatoes into a major culinary center. Chicago Cooks chronicles this story through the eyes of the Chicago chapter of Les Dames d'Escoffier, female leaders in the food and dining world. They tell how the Chicago food scene grew and evolved, touching on landmark restaurants like Charlie Trotter's and Frontera Grill, the rise of ethnic cuisines imported from around the world, and the proliferation of shops, markets, and classes serving the ever more sophisticated home cook. The book also includes a bounty of 75 recipes for entertaining from this unique group of Chicago food authorities, gathered specially for this book.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Chicago brings to mind big-shouldered steaks, old school ethnic traditions, and trendy chefs who use more lab equipment than kitchen equipment. But there are long-lived and less well known traditions celebrated is this book by Les Dames D'Escoffier of Chicago. --Claudia Kousoulas, October 2007 "Appetite for Books Review "
The flowery French name, Les Dames d'Escoffier, might set people wondering exactly what this group is. But on looking into the straightforward new cookbook from the local chapter Les Dames, two words will explain: Serious foodies. --Veronica Hinke, January 10, 2008 "Taste trust - Evanston Review (IL) "
