Jean Joho/Bruce Sherman/Cookbook fans take note!

Hi there:

In May, I started a conversation on French places for a visiting food fanatic to eat and got some great recommendations. Alas, a family emergency put paid to the trip at the absolute last minute (the reservation nazi at Trotter's was NOT amused). You were all so kind, I thought I'd pass this discovery along:

The current issue of an expensive hardcover quarterly magazine called Art Culinaire (#62) features about a half a dozen good (REALLY good) recipes each from Sherman and Joho. Roasted Squab with Chestnut Bisque (Joho) and Chilled Spiny Lobster Bisque with Hickory Grilled Scallops (Sherman) are two of my favourites.
Art Culinaire is a mag aimed at serious foodies (20%) and chefs who are trying to become the next Charlie Trotter (80%). The thing costs 65.95 a year but I I don't subscribe as I only buy about one out of every three issues. We have a cookbook store here in Toronto that stocks it and I'm sure there's one in Chicago that does the same. I'd recommend checking it out. The recipes are really good.

Thanks again for your recommendations earlier this year and I hope to do some reviews for you this fall when I reschedule the trip,

Mike
