9781931968584: West Point Market Cookbook

In Seattle, people swear by Pike Place Market. In the Big Apple, native New Yorkers trek to Zabar's. In Northeast Ohio, everyone salivates at the thought of West Point Market's Killer Brownies. West Point Market, a market like no other, packs 350 varieties of cheese, 3,000 different wines, and 8,200 international gourmet items into 25,000 square feet of sheer culinary heaven. Family-owned since 1936, the Market's national reputation for quality and panache attracts professional chefs, party planners, gastronomic connoisseurs, and anyone who savors a dish that adds spice to life, literally.

About the Author:

Russ Vernon began working at his father's West Point Market at the age of eight. He retired as chairman in 2006 but has continued to play an active role in the store. Among his many honors, Russ was named Small Business Person of the year by the Small Business Administration, Entrepreneur of the Year by the Akron Regional Development Board, Sales and Marketing Executive of the year by the Akron Sales & Marketing Association, and was inducted into the Family Business Hall of Fame at Case Western University's Weatherhead School of Business. In retirement, Russ volunteers time as a counselor for SCORE, America's counselors to small businesses, and serves on the Advisory Board for the Hattie Larlham Foundation. He has three sons and lives with his wife Peg at their home in Akron, Ohio. David Giffels is a columnist for the Akron Beacon Journal and the author, most recently, of All the Way Home: Building a Family in a Falling-down House. He is the co-author of two other books: the rock biography Are We Not Men? We Are Devo! and Wheels of Fortune: The Story of Rubber in Akron. He is also a former writer for the MTV series Beavis and Butt-Head. His essays have appeared in The American Midwest: An Interpretive Encyclopedia; The Appalachians: America's First and Last Frontier; and in the New York Times Magazine and Redbook. He holds bachelor's degrees in English and mass media, and a master's degree in English from the University of Akron. Doug Spence studied commercial art at Akron Hower Vocational High School, and received his BFA from Kent State University in drawing and design. In first grade, he was given the prestigious assignment of washing the chalkboards and dusting the erasers, which sparked a life-long passion for art and chalk dust. Doug began painting signs for West Point Market about twenty years ago, eventually badgering Russ into letting him illustrate and letter all of the store's chalkboards. Most of his work now involves chalkboard advertising for Nort

Review:

My father sold groceries to Russ Vernon's dad at the original Highland Square store seventy-five years ago. It has been a continuing joy to watch West Point Market grow into a national treasure. Whenever it shares its recipes, count me in. Whether it's Mrs. Depue's Lemon Pie, Killer or Divine Brownies, Butterscotch Rum Mousse, or easy-to-make Key Lime Tarts, this glorious collection of West Point favorites rings my bell and lights my fire. It's simply the very best. --Bob Lape, Emmy Award winner, Food journalist for WCBS and Crain's New York Business in New York

There is something about the course through the store-through the Great Wine Forest, around the Whispering Cave of the Cheeses, past Mrs. Ticklemore's Tearoom and into the Plain of the Killer Brownies-that is at once directly familiar and just beyond objective description. Like the sound of an approaching blimp and the concept of the Don Drumm wedding gift, it's something we natives share and understand intrinsically and it improves our lives in a particularly local way. It's the best kind of provincialism, the aspect of life in a place that enjoys certain flavors exclusively. This is the place where, the only time in my life I ever needed to purchase octopus, I was able to. I bought octopus off the rack, as they say in the sportcoat business. --From the foreword by David Giffels

This glorious book admits food pilgrims to the inner sanctum of one of America's most acclaimed fancy foods stores. Killer Brownies, Turkey Braciola, Sticky Toffee Pudding - the secret recipes are all here. They show why West Point Market has become a magnet for food cognoscenti from across the country and around the world. --Jane Snow, food writer and winner of two James Beard Awards
