A Chicago Tradition: Marshall Field's Food and Fashion explores a retail icon's gustatory and fashion sense. How the original tearoom came about; how and why Mrs. Hering, a millinery salesclerk, got a menu item named after her; and just what makes Frango Mints so special are explained. Five of Field's all-time favorite recipes are shared with the reader; gorgeous photographs give us a glimpse of dining in days gone by. Also discussed and illustrated are some unique fashion firsts from Field's: first bridal registry, first men's store, first boutique. Take an intimate tour of one of the few remaining department stores totally devoted to quality and the customer, and sample a bit of Chicago history along the way.
