In a city where brunch is a near-religious experience, the Clinton Street Baking Company and Restaurant is arguably the Holy Grail - a dining experience so fulfilling that people wait hours on weekend mornings for a chance to savour their fresh baked goods, hearty omelettes, sugar-cured bacon and house-made buttermilk biscuits and tomato jam.
In the CLINTON ST. BAKING COMPANY COOKBOOK, owners DeDe Lahman and Neil Kleinberg offer more than 100 recipes, including a variety of muffins and scones, their secret pancake recipe, delicious soups and sandwiches, and decadent desserts. Helpful techniques, like Neil's patented omelette 'flip and tuck' will have readers cooking like a pro in no time.
DeDe Lahman is co-owner of the Clinton St. Baking Company and Community Food & Juice. She began her career as an editor and advice columnist at 17 magazine. Neil Kleinberg was raised in Brooklyn and opened his first restaurant at the age of 22. He co-authored The Lundy's Cookbook and is a distinguished member of The James Beard Foundation.
