I liked the one on Page 12 for butternut squash soup with crab from Chef Judy Henry, owner of Judy’s on Cherry at 30 S. Fourth St. But there are many more you can enjoy, along with the anecdotes and wisdom that Sussman-Versace provides.

I love the format of the book… great information and fantastic recipes from local restaurants. It’s definitely unlike any “business” book I’ve ever read, in a good way! I have learned so much from Bonnie that I use in my business on a daily basis. Can’t wait for the sequel! 😉
