Publisher Comments:

Nationally known chef Leslie Mackie opened Macrina in 1993 as an artisan bakery and lunch spot. News of this exciting eatery spread quickly through Seattle and beyond, making Macrina an American favorite. This lavishly produced cookbook offers the same dishes, developed from extensive research and travel, found at Macrina. Recipes range from a classic Rustic Potato Loaf or Raisin Brioche Twist, to a delectable Raspberry Cinnamon-Sugar Bread Pudding with Nectarine Compote, to a tantalizing variety of lunch items, including Butternut Squash and Apple Galette, and Salmon Paillard on Mixed Greens with Mustard Vinaigrette. The book features a special holiday section, and gorgeous duotone photographs capture the setting, its people, and its inspiring displays of breads, pastries, and breakfast and lunch fare.

Synopsis:

Macrinas irresistible creations, from rustic potato bread to pear and cracked pepper bread to crisp, crackly baguettes, have made Seattle a culinary destination for fans of scrumptious baked goods. Author Leslie Mackie, revered by chefs and artisan bakers throughout the country, brings her talent and passion to this beautiful cookbook. The recipes here run the gamut from simple morning muffins to impressive European pastries and show-stopping desserts. Now customers, cookbook buyers, and food lovers everywhere can experience the delicious offerings of Macrina in their own kitchens.

Karla, May 18, 2010 (view all comments by Karla)
Based on the cover when I picked up this book I expected it to be full of high-effort baking recipes. What I found instead were a lot of recipes with slight ingredient tweaks and a chance to push the boundaries on "the ordinary" that gave them delicious charm. A real plus were the recipes that were "go along with" additions, for example "Egg Salad Sandwich on Greek Olive bread with Roasted Tomatoes" which was divine!. None of the recipes were of the quick, throw-together category, but none were beyond the reach of the average baker/cook either. This is a keeper that I actually will use over and over again.
