Mike & I just edited and produced this wonderful cookbook by Allan Spiegler. I wish I’d had this book when my kids were growing up. It’s the story of Allan’s Clark Street Bakery in 1980’s Chicago. He includes information on nutrition and also explains the food chemistry and how to guarantee good results. In addition, there are charming vignettes about the bakery’s role as the great beating heart of the community. A great gift for yourself and anyone who loves to bake.
Available on Amazon et al, but do the author a favor by buying the book through the “Shop Now” button on the Facebook page. This way more of the proceeds go back to the author, rather than to Amazon.
Allan’s memoir, “Tremors in the Cloister,” placed third in non-fiction in last year’s Arizona authors competition.
