Editorial Reviews

Gretchen Legler
"Who knew making your own artisanal crackers was so easy? Cart’s imaginative, well-thought-out and easy-to-follow recipes range from standbys like Graham and Soda crackers to exotics like Tequila Key Lime and Coffee and Dark Rye. This little book belongs in every food lover’s kitchen!"
Bob Tarte
"My wife and I went crackers over Lee E. Cart’s fabulous book. We loved the idea of making our own crackers, and who would have guessed how easy it would be? These cracker recipes put the supermarket variety to shame."
