Soundbites: Rook Cooks

'Cityscape'

Lou Rook III is Executive Chef at Annie Gunn’s restaurant in Chesterfield, Missouri.  He’s also the author of a new cook book, Rook Cooks.

For our monthly Sound Bites segment in partnership with Sauce Magazine, host Steve Potter talked with Rook and Sauce Magazine Associate Editor Julie Cohen.

The magazine featured Rook in its December issue for Cook’s Books, where each month a local chef recommends his or her favorite cookbooks.  They also featured his cookbook in this month’s online column, By the Book.  Each month, a member of the editorial staff cooks a recipe from a cookbook and writes a blog entry about the experience.

Alex is the executive producer of "St. Louis on the Air" at St. Louis Public Radio.
