Let Shelley Howell take you on another journey into Bawlmer restaurants and bakeries of yesteryear. You'll stop at Haussner's, the House of Welsh, Thompson's Sea-Girt House, Ms. Desserts, and many other famous eateries from Maryland's Land of Pleasant Living, leaving each one with signature recipes you will want to recreate in your own kitchen. Tonight you might try Thompson's Crab Cakes, while tomorrow's menu will be Jimmy Wu's Beef Stir Fry with Tomato.
Readers will want to linger over memories of meals at Rudys', Miller Brothers, or Maria's 300. These are the recipes that make the Free State famous, with its bounty from the Chesapeake Bay, and its traditions that mix the old world with the new.
So whether your tastes go toward crab imperial or the perfectly broiled steak, if you like it the way they did it in Baltimore's best restaurants of the past, this is the book for you.
