A Whole Brunch of Recipes to Make at Home
by Cathy Barrow
For many, the photo on the cover of this book represents the perfect Sunday breakfast. Please note, there are many equally appealing photos inside.
The author organizes the table of contents to look like a menu. It is a nice piece of whimsy. Find recipes for bagels, schmears, fish, and sandwiches. It is just one example of the appealing design of this title.
The writer of this book is very personable. A number of family stories are shared and set the tone. There are also some fun sections including one on the history of the bagel.
One of the many things that I like about this book was its willingness to acknowledge that not everyone is a whiz in the kitchen. So, says the author, buy bagels if that is your choice and try some of the other recipes. The reader feels freed to use the book in the ways that work best.
Another section that I liked was the trouble shooting one. For example, answering questions like “why is my bagel flat?”
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
