Breakfast, Brunch & Beyond from New York’s Favorite Neighborhood Restaurant
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.

This is a  wonderful  cookbook that features breakfast and brunch foods, including desserts and cocktails. The recipes are clear and easy to follow  and use ingredients which are pretty much a staple in my house.  I normally make homemade pancakes for the family on weekends.  So if was pretty obvious to me, which recipe I would try first.  I made the pancakes that are featured on the cover.  I know know why they were featured on the cover!  They were terrific!  I can not wait to comb through the book and try other recipes.   It is full of great recipes that are sure to please anyone!
