We got a great review from the Midwest Book Review’s CookBook Shelf:
Synopsis: “Shop Like a Chef: A Food Lover’s Guide to St. Louis Neighborhoods” by Chef Clara Moore and St. Louis food and beverage writer Matt Sorrell will enable the reader to locate the exact ingredient needed with its index of over 1,000 items; learn new foods, recipes, and skills; eat better; save money; support a range of local businesses and farmers; fell comfortable in St. Louis’s gourmet outlets, specialty shops, and ethnic grocery stores; and simply expand personal culinary horizons in all directions.
Critique: Although the shopping information is oriented towards St. Louis, the basic information is universal. Plus the recipes are simply terrific and guaranteed ‘kitchen cook friendly’. Highly recommended, especial for St. Louis residents, “Shop Like a Chef: A Food Lover’s Guide to St. Louis Neighborhoods” has a great deal to commend it to the attention of non-St. Louis residents and would aptly serve as a template for similar works set in other American cities.
