(Michael's that Greek-Italian guy in the middle - with the great laugh.)
The book is scheduled to be released November 3rd, but you can pre-order now.
According to Michael's site Symon Says:
This book has been well over a year in the making and has been one of the toughest and most enjoyable projects of my life. It will have stories and recipes from my childhood until now and to say I am proud of it would be a vast understatement.
I really need to thank Michael and Donna Ruhlman for making the process enjoyable and Rica for pushing us to do such a great book...here is the link if you are interested in checking it out... here Michael Symon's Live to Cook: Recipes and Techniques to Rock Your Kitchen.
And, if you happen to live within reasonable driving distance to Cleveland (sadly, Chicago doesn't fit the bill) be sure to check out his Cooking With Michael series of classes. The website says they are all filled up. But, if I lived in the area, I'd be calling to see if I could get on a waiting list in case of cancellations. Or, for the next round in the series. But, yanno, that's just me.
Please let there be a book tour!
