Now they turn their culinary skills to the rest of the menu, presenting delicious, savory, and timeless heirloom dishes collected over decades and updated for the modern kitchen. Marilynn and Sheila Brass have spent a lifetime collecting handwritten "manuscript cookbooks" and "living recipes." Heirloom Cooking collects and skillfully updates 135 of the very best of these, which together represent nearly 100 years of the best-loved and most delicious dishes from all over North America. The oldest recipes date back to the late 1800s, and every decade and a wide variety of ethnicities are captured here. The book is divided into sections including Starters; Salads; Vegetables; Breads; Main Dishes including Lamb, Beef, Veal, Pork, Fish, Chicken, and Turkey; Vegetarian; and—of course—Dessert. As they did in Heirloom Baking, the Brass sisters include the wonderful stories behind the recipes, and once again, lush photography is provided by Andy Ryan....

Heirloom Cooking With the Brass Sisters: Recipes You Remember and Love Reviews
This recipe book should be a must read for every family. You'll find every imaginable recipe you'll ever need for small family dinners or large party gatherings.Start with appetizers, soups and salads. Enjoy mouth watering "home plates" (entrees) served with delicious sides and unforgettable breads. And don't forget dessert! My personal favorite recipes are Katherine's Shepherd's Pie, Enormous Popovers and Shoofly Pie. The book cover of this beautifully illustrated book says "recipes you remember and love" - no doubt YOU will be remembered the first time you serve one of these dishes!
I loved the Heirloom Baking cookbook so much that I wanted to try this one out too. My dad obliged and got this for me for Christmas. This book is great because it ties in history and cooking. There are some kooky things in here but many of the recipes are simple and delicious. I especially love the stuffed mushrooms (which I make without cheese since my husband isn't a fan) and the zucchini bake which go over very well at parties. I plan to try some of the more complex recipes out for special occasions.
The Canadian Banana Bread was a huge hit with our Hindu housemate, Jaya, who cannot eat eggs. I taught her how to make it and she took it to the office. There were many requests for copies of the recipe from the Madison Indian community. These are COMFORT food recipes--traditional and tasty.
Not as good as the Heirloom Baking book, this one was fun to read and then return to the library.If you don't have an extensive recipe or cookbook collection or if you're not blessed with an amazing Mom and Aunt as your cooks of inspiration, this will be a good fit for you.
Charming (at times) cookbook with a lot of old (and sometimes nasty) recipes that I have seen previously. And some I really never wanted to see again....Candle salad - banana, pineapple ring, cherry - that does not need to be resurrected.
Another winner!! This one would probably get more use than the baking book.
Recipes have too many ingredients for me to consider trying. Not my style of eating or cooking.
