Baking with the Brass Sisters
Marilynn and Sheila Brass are known for their devotion to America’s culinary past, scouring old cookbooks and handwritten recipes to ensure that our nation’s home-baked favorites survive for the next generation. In their latest tome, Baking with the Brass Sisters, the duo has compiled recipes that traveled alongside incoming immigrants, as well as favorites that sprouted out of Yankee soil. Featuring the sisters’ approachable style and illustrative oral histories of the recipes, readers will delight in the heritage and the flavors of what comes out of the oven.
