“Beautifully and warmly photographed, this cookbook is about real, delicious, home-cooked food.” --Alice Waters, Chez Panisse
"Anyone who's waited in line for a table at Mother's Bistro & Bar on Southwest Stark for Sunday brunch should pounce on this book. It reveals many of the restaurant's most popular dishes, plus some from Mama Mia Trattoria, Schroeder's other eatery right next door, as well as recipes from moms whose cooking has been featured at Mother's through the years. Don't assume that all this maternal instinct spells stodgy food: Inside this book a smart, trained chef is at work." --The Oregonian
Lisa Schroeder is the chef/owner of Mother’s Bistro & Bar and Mama Mia Trattoria in Portland, Oregon. Schroeder’s award-winning restaurants have been featured in The Oregonian, Food & Wine, Cooking Light, Town & Country, USA Today, and Bon Appetit. She makes her home in Portland, Oregon.
