Three words: Bacon Egg Bolo. I don't know if it's in the cookbook, but it's my regular Grand Central breakfast. Like I said, Bacon Egg Bolo.

This will be a great gift for out of town friends and family who love to visit Grand Central when they are in Portland. Now they can have a taste of GCB back home.

Jammers have to be one of my all time favorite things from Grand Central Bakery. The fact that I now have access to the jammer recipe and all my other favorites from GCB has to be one of the highlights of the year! Thanks GCB for sharing your delicious secrets.

"Staff Pick" by ,

Every now and then, a cookbook comes along that becomes an instant classic. This is one of them. Fans of Grand Central Bakery — and bakers of all skill levels — will be delighted that they can now enjoy these irresistible baked goods at home.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Davis, daughter of the woman who founded the renowned Pacific Northwest bakery Grand Central, shares secrets for 85 breakfast pastries, scones, cookies, pies and other baked goods in this reliable resource. Would-be pastry chefs looking for culinary showmanship will likely be disappointed by Davis's rustic recipes, but those with an appreciation for solid, buttery fare will be swooning over the results from recipes like individual bread puddings, Belgian waffles, Lemon Cream Sandwich Cookies and a rich Raspberry Port Trifle. Unfortunately, those results are always thoroughly described in Davis's instructions — not a problem for the bulk of recipes (tarts, cakes, sticky buns) but problematic for more unusual entries like Dutch Babies or biscuit-like Jammers. Still, Davis makes up for these occasional lapses with useful pro tips like how to freeze pies, pie dough and cake batter to maximize efficiency come production time. She also provides proper techniques for a range of skills, from dough handling to building and decorating the perfect layered birthday cake. Readers passionate about their baked goods are sure to find a wealth of favorites." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Review" by , "At last, we have a long overdue glimpse into one of the Pacific Northwest’s best bakeries. This book is comprehensive, fun, and enticing!"
"Review" by , "The recipes in this book are just like Grand Central Bakery: brilliant but not flashy, tasty but not self-absorbed, and full of homey charm. You will be smitten!" Tom Douglas, chef-owner of Dahlia Lounge, Lola, and Serious Pie, and author of Tom Douglas' Seattle Kitchen
"Review" by , "There is a familial quality to good baking, a no-nonsense wholesomeness with the scent of freshly baked muffins. Piper and Ellen have captured this, as well as the wonderful style and character of Grand Central Bakery favorites. This is a practical and functional book that is bound to become lovingly tattered on your shelf." Greg Higgins, chef-owner of Higgins Restaurant and Bar and recipient of the James Beard Award Best Chef: Northwest
"Synopsis" by , Pacific Northwesterners flock to the Grand Central Bakery, and now the much-loved recipes are available to home bakers for the first time, accompanied by easy-to-follow pointers on baking for breakfast and brunch, cookies, fruit desserts, cakes, pies, and more.
"Synopsis" by , Grand Central Bakery is a favorite bakery and local treasure for Pacific Northwesterners; it has also been named one of the top ten bakeries in the country by Bon Appetit. Home bakers can now enjoy and create some of the much-loved recipes in this collection of goodies.
