Now including updated information through late August 2012, this is a fast-paced biography of the star Chicago chef whose career exemplifies the transformation of American fine-dining over the past 25 years.

Bursting onto the Chicago culinary scene in 1987, Charlie Trotter's restaurant--named for the young executive chef and owner--became first a local phenomenon and eventually a national landmark. From his rise to stardom to his unexpected August 2012 closing, Charlie Trotter has consistently been one of Chicago's most distinguished and high-profile chefs.

Trotter, more than any of his peers, ushered in a new type of dining experience--the chef-driven, "New American" gourmet cuisine that has proliferated across the country--by never offering the same menu twice, and creating multi-course meals from scratch each day using boutique ingredients, including a rare all-vegetable degustation.

Updated in late August 2012, and drawn from 25 years of Chicago Tribune coverage, Charlie Trotter offers the most comprehensive examination of the restaurant that put Chicago on the culinary map. This is an in-depth look at the inner workings of both the man and his landmark restaurant.
