The joy of cooking breakfast is revealed in all its glory, with recipes for everything from Huevos Rancheros to Bloody Marys.
Sixty years since Irma Rombauer advised new cooks to "Stand facing the stove," America's love affair with Joy of Cooking continues unabated. And why not? Joy in hand, tens of millions of people -- from novices to professionals -- have learned to do everything from make a meat loaf to clean a squid to frost a wedding cake. For decades, Joy of Cooking has taught America how to cook, serving as the standard against which all other cookbooks are judged. All About Breakfast & Brunch upholds that standard. In the conversational and instructional manner of the flagship book, All About Breakfast & Brunch elevates "the most important meal of the day" (and the ever-popular weekend brunch) and offers up such mouth-watering egg dishes as Savory Cheese and Herb-Filled Souffléed Omelet, Eggs Benedict, and Matzo Brei; savory brunch sides like Corned Beef Hash, Crabcakes, and Fried Green Tomatoes; delicious fruit and grain recipes, including Apple Fritters, Apricot Compote, and Muesli; and dozens of baked goods, pancakes, and waffles. You'll also find recipes for traditional brunch beverages as well as menus and entertaining tips. Add to that more than 150 original photographs, specially commissioned for this volume, presented in the most easy-to-use design imaginable. Whether you belong to one of the millions of American households that already own a copy (or two) of Joy, or you have never cracked the spine of a cookbook before, Joy of Cooking: All About Breakfast & Brunch is for you. It is a spectacular achievement, worthy of its name. Joy has never been more beautiful.
