Description: Family is everything, and so is food when it comes to the Berghoff family. Now fans and home cooks get a taste of the wonderful and historical fare from the famed Chicago-based cafes in The Berghoff Cafe Cookbook: Berghoff Family Recipes for Simple, Satisfying Food. 

Founded in 1898 by Herman Berghoff, the Berghoff Cafe has come to symbolize the American dream and the joy that comes from sharing food with family and friends. Today, the tradition lives on with Herman's great granddaughter Carlyn Berghoff in her new collection of classic dishes, many with a modern twist. 

The cafe food is built upon three principles that work in the restaurant as well as at home: reuse, recycle, and reinvent. 

Potatoes become Lyonnaise Potatoes, Potato Soup, and much more. Herb Roasted Turkey Breast also stars in the Turkey Reuben. Pizza is reinvented by topping it with Berghoff signature ingredients creating Brat, Kraut, and Onion Pizza with Swiss Cheese and Caraway Crust. 

The eighty delicious recipes plus creative variations in The Berghoff Cafe Cookbook represent the full range of Berghoff Cafe food. There are recipes from great grandfather Herman's cafe, updated for today's cook so they require less time and have fewer calories, alongside selections from today's cafe menu and customers' favorite soups, salads, sandwiches, pizzas, and desserts. Color photography and interesting historical and cooking-related sidebars complete the book. The recipes you'll find in The Berghoff Cafe Cookbook are easy to prepare, look good on the plate, and are simply so good to eat.
