On November 29, Eli’s Cheesecake Owners Marc and Maureen Schulman joined Dean Richards on WGN radio’s “Foodtime Show” segment to discuss The Eli’s Cheesecake Cookbook. During the show Marc and Maureen discussed the rich history of Chicago food and Eli’s Schulman’s influential role in the Chicago food industry. While Eli’s Cheesecake is known for cheesecakes, the cookbook does not solely focus on cheesecakes. Instead, the cookbook is a combination of traditional Chicago dishes, influenced by Eli’s Place for Steak, such as “Liver Eli” and “Shrimp Marc,” favorite cheesecakes, and useful tips and tricks. Richards thus named the cookbook as “retro,” given its revival of Chicago classics. Maureen was able to give some book details including some of the available recipes as well as her top favorites.
