Nationally-Known Cooking Experts Marilyn & Sheila Brass Return to AADL to Discuss Their New Book 'Heirloom Cooking with The Brass Sisters'
This event was held on November 13, 2008 at Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
They're back! Now television stars of their own PBS series, "The Brass Sisters: Queens of Comfort Food" on WGBH in Boston, Marilynn and Sheila Brass return to the Library on their national tour for their new book, "Heirloom Cooking with the Brass Sisters." They will also help celebrate the first anniversary of AADL's online database of cookbooks and recipes, Ann Arbor Cooks. A book signing will follow the event and books will be for sale.
Marilynn and Sheila Brass have spent a lifetime collecting handwritten "manuscript cookbooks" and "living recipes." These James Beard Award finalists have launched a new cookbook category with their "heirloom" baking recipes. The Brass sisters, who reside in Massachusetts, are experts on heirloom cookery and have compiled a research library of more than 6,500 cookbooks, including dozens of manuscript cookbooks, as well as 1,500 books and periodicals on antiques and culinary history.
