“For the last decade, I’ve been traveling in and out of Chicago several times a year and I’m always amazed at what a true culinary destination the city has become. And without a doubt, Rick Tramonto is as integral to the flavor of Chicagoland as anybody. With this book, all of that simple, yet delicious, Italian fare with which Rick embraces his restaurant customers everyday is beautifully laid out for us all to take home and enjoy with our own friends and family.”
