Holiday Gift Guide 2010: Clinton St. Baking Company Cookbook Review and Giveaway (Ends 11/30) CLOSED

Saturday, November 20, 2010 Posted by Dina N

Good food and holidays go hand in hand, and the Clinton St. Baking Company knows good food. Just in time for the holidays, they are bringing to you their expertise as New York's popular breakfast spot in a new cookbook full of mouthwatering recipes.

Book Description
The Clinton St. Baking Company is one of the hottest brunch spots in a city obsessed with brunch. A tiny thirty-two-seat eatery on Manhattan's trendy Lower East Side, the restaurant draws long lines of customers who come from far and wide to sample fresh-baked goods, hearty omelets, sugar-cured bacon, and light-as-air pancakes with maple butter.

In the Clinton St. Baking Company Cookbook, owners DeDe Lahman and Neil Kleinberg share more than 100 treasured recipes that have made their restaurant a sensation. Learn the secret to their house-made buttermilk biscuits and tomato jam, irresistible muffins and scones, delicious soups and sandwiches, and their decadent, eye-catching desserts. Helpful techniques, like Neil's patented omelet "flip and tuck," and gorgeous color photographs throughout will have readers cooking like pros in no time, and sharing the delicious results.

My Review
The Clinton St. Baking Company Cookbook by Neil Kleinberg, Michael Harlan Turkell has recipes for everything you need to make a delicious holiday - or everyday - breakfast, brunch, lunch and more. The cookbook is divided into eleven chapters, including recipes for biscuits, muffins and scones, eggs, pancakes, soups, sandwiches, dessert, drinks and more. Many recipes feature a neat restaurant trick, a helpful note, or both to make sure your dish turns out as perfect as if it came from the kitchen of the Clinton St. Baking Company. I like the suggested variations that allow me to adjust some recipes to my family's liking.

The Crab Cakes Benedict, Flourless Chocolate Cake, and the Classic Double-Crust Peach Pie are on my holiday to-do list. I love making egg dishes for breakfast - and even for lunch - so the Spanish Scramble, the Frittata, and the Farmer's Plate are something we'll be trying over Thanksgiving weekend.

Oh and those scones? De-e-e-licious!

    Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Sometimes eat it for dinner. But my favorite meal for breakfast is a breakfast burrito with scrambled eggbeaters, Chorizo, onions, crisp hash browns and plenty of cheese. Then serve it with some ranch dressing. Yummo!
