The Secrets and Recipes of the Beef Steak Inn, as told to Louise Brass, reveals the inside story of starting a restaurant from scratch, just outside Chicago in the 1950s. This fun read is a look into the life of former WWII tap dancer, spy catcher and war bride, Pauline Fraser, as she tackles some demanding chefs, wishy washy bus boys, and many waitresses who seem more interested in finding mates than serving customers. This book includes dozens of recipes suitable for chefs, cooking schools, restaurants and those preparing for large family gatherings such as reunions and home weddings. A dozen more recipes are for small scale cooking and are home-style favorites in Fraser’s homeland of England.
