Cookbook Review: Clinton St. Baking Company Cookbook

Customers wait in line for hours in the early morning New York cold to eat the sweet and savory foods at the Clinton St. Baking Company, and now thanks to their new cookbook, you can re-create their dishes in the warmth and comfort of your own home.

As the author says, "The point is, when you find a favorite joint, where the food hits the spot and you're completely at home -- your senses come alive, your belly is full -- what more could you want?  For the moment, life feels complete."

Just imagine preparing a Sunday brunch for your family and friends with all the flair of a professional restaurant while you all chit chat on the week's events or watch football in HD.

The cookbook's beautiful pictures will help you plan the menu.  The recipes from the chef-owner, combined with friendly banter from the author-owner, will make you feel as if you were all in the kitchen together.

I have special permission from Hachette Book Group to republish the cookbook's Flourless Chocolate Cake Recipe.  It's a real hit.  Be sure to click the link.

You'll be able to prepare their world-famous brunches: soups, sandwiches, omelets and scrambles, pancakes, biscuits, and let's not forget the made-from-scratch desserts -- it's all there.

You won't want to miss their award-winning buttermilk fried chicken either.

Secrets are revealed; tips, methods and advice are shared, all with easy step-by-step directions; and their favorite brands are recommended too.

A couple of minor details--like assuming the reader already knows how to barbecue pulled-pork, or using corn syrup in their maple bourbon pecan pie--do not detract from a great book which you'll want to use again and again.

  1. This book sounds fabulous! I could use a good pancake recipe, and, well, there's always room for dessert. :)

  2. Melissa: Their pancakes are award-winners too. The bakery/restaurant has been voted best in New York several times.
