Holiday Gift Guide 2010: Clinton St. Baking Company Cookbook Review and Giveaway (Ends 11/30) CLOSED
Saturday, November 20, 2010 Posted by Dina N
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.
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!
