What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"The only thing better than the Brass Sisters' comfort food is their adorable personalities. This cookbook is like having them, and a host of colorful characters, in your kitchen sharing their family secrets for fantastic home cooking." —Ming Tsai, host/executive producer of public television's "Simply Ming" and chef/owner of Blue Ginger

"Those intrepid recipe collectors and guardians of our culinary past, Marilynn and Sheila Brass, are at it again, and this time they're bringing us both baking and cooking loaded with old fashioned goodness. Yes, it's Mom, meatloaf, and coconut pie, but when the Brass sisters give you these recipes, there’s an important exception—they’re the real thing." —Nick Malgieri, author of The Modern Baker and How to Bake

Marilyn and Sheila Brass's "Heirloom Cooking with the Brass Sisters" is a beautiful book: the photographs are numerous and true to color and interesting in themselves. And the commentaries explaining the orgins of the recipes and how they were re-discovered are entertaining. They provide an electic selection of 'recipes you remember and love.' Just thinking about their Billionaire's Macaroni and Cheese or Icebox Pickles is enough to make my stomach growl with anticipation. But, and here's the downside, for many of us, these are recipes to read and remember and talk about, but are no longer foods that fit into 2008 eating patterns. That remarkable mac and cheese dish has among other things, butter, milk, cheddar, eggs, whole milk ricotta, provolone, Parmesan. And it sounds like heaven. So, if you're looking for an conversation provoking coffee table book, or a gift for someone who loves food from the past, this is it. It's beautiful and the recipes are authentic. But if you're looking for a recipe for anyone who's health conscious, this may not be the one.
