THE DISH The Lives and Labor Behind One Plate of Food

by | Read by Michael Lomonaco

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Michael Lomonaco narrates this high-energy audiobook with the right tempo, cadence, and tone. A famed chef, restaurateur, and TV personality, he understands the intensity and focus of a creative kitchen. He captures the gamut of emotions associated with the pursuit of the perfect dish--the underlying subject of this audiobook. The author is especially adept at profiles--of farmers, chefs, and employees at every level, as well as the people in distribution. That list includes Johnny Clark and Beverly Kim, the owners of Wherewithall Restaurant, once a darling of Chicago cuisine, now closed due to the pandemic and infrastructure problems. Friedman's portrait of the restaurant is a loving testimony to high-end dining, specifically the restaurant's complex four-course tasting menus that delighted diners and critics.
