Review. Even if you don’t live in New York and have never been to The Clinton Street Baking Company diner, thanks to this incredible cookbook, you too can enjoy their incredible brunches.
In the book the owners/authors, DeDe Lahman and Neil Kleinberg, share the secret to their success, “we make simple American classics using serious-chef techniques.” After making the pancakes and maple butter, I concur that they have corned the market on remaking basic brunch dishes. The pancakes were simply the lightest, fluffiest ones I have ever eaten. And the maple butter? Well, according to the authors, a past customer once commented, “I want to wipe maple butter all over my body.” A tad extreme, perhaps, but it really is that good!
I also love the layout of the cookbook. Nearly every recipe is accompanied by a beautiful color photo. The instructions are clear and easy to follow and most of the ingredients are probably already in your pantry. Also included are step-by-step techniques to make breakfast staples, such as, the perfect omelet, flaky biscuits and bakery worthy muffins.
