Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Roasted beets with green garlic labneh

    • meggan on November 28, 2018

      I liked this - I should have used a food processor for the scallions though because they ended up stringy. I used store bought Turkish labneh. I used the rest to make baked eggs.

  • Maple-roasted winter squash with piri-piri sauce

    • meggan on November 03, 2018

      Surprisingly, I didn't love this but I think my squash had a weird taste. Sometimes squash skins can be quite bitter and I think that was the problem.

  • Barbecued carrots

    • hirsheys on June 10, 2018

      This recipe was a megillah - lots of steps and definitely a lot of work for what amounted to a salad. But WOW, what a salad. I don't even like cooked carrots and these were fantastic - restaurant quality, for sure. I made them as written except that I didn't think I needed a whole gallon of water to boil a pound of carrots, so I halved the amount. Also, I grilled them on the stovetop. Even without the charcoal, they were yummy!

  • Ranchovy herb dressing

    • hirsheys on June 10, 2018

      This is super delicious. Made it as part of the barbecued carrots, but I think it's more likely that this is the recipe that I will return to the most. (Though I really liked the carrots, too!)

    Chicago restaurant The Publican is one of those places that’s hard to explain, but makes perfect sense when you’re there...Paul Kahan describes it as “oyster, pork, and beer” in his new cookbook...

Publishers Text

The highly anticipated narrative-rich cookbook by Chicago’s superstar chef, Paul Kahan, whose destination restaurant, The Publican, is known for its incredibly delicious pork- and seafood-centric, beer-friendly cooking. 

The Publican, often named one of Chicago’s most popular restaurants, conjures a colonial American beer hall with its massive communal tables, high-backed chairs, deep beer list, and Kahan’s hallmark style of crave-worthy heartland cooking that transcends the expected and is eminently cookable. Cheers to The Publican is Paul Kahan’s and Executive Chef Cosmo Goss’s toast to the food they love to make and share, the characters who produce the ingredients that inspire them, and the other cooks they honor. Larded with rich story-telling and featuring more than 150 evocative photographs and 150 recipes for vegetables and salads, fish and seafood, meat, simple charcuterie, and breads and spreads, Cheers to The Publican is sure to be one of the most talked-about and cooked-from cookbooks of the year.
