Additional Details

Description: Executive Chef Thomas Hiestand reflects on a career spent creating in the kitchen, in the company of his well-worn chef's hat, called a toque: "We have certainly been through a lot, my toque and me -- everything from VIP dinners and banquets for a thousand, to being short-handed at the time of the big rush. We've handled it all, and then some. So one of us definitely needed a break from the kitchen. What better way to be inspired than to explore the country? Taste some new flavors, learn a new technique, find a fun twist on an old favorite. After the coin toss (I lost), my toque set off from our home, The Herrington Inn in Geneva, Illinois, on an adventure." 

Thus begins one of the most creative cookbooks around. Traveling from state to state, gathering recipes and stunning photography, Chef Thomas' toque gives both serious and armchair cooks a fun new addition to their collections. 

The Herrington Inn in Geneva, Illinois is the state's only four-diamond hotel and four-diamond restaurant outside Chicago. Exquisite European country decor, unparalleled service, and fine dining at Atwater's, headed by one of the most creative chefs in the country, have made The Herrington Inn the hotel of choice for business and leisure travelers alike.
