PRAISE FOR A BAKER'S DAUGHTER

"part cookbook, part ode ... one satisfying volume."

 Whenever you needed a loaf of marble rye, a bagful of molasses cookies (my favorite) or a birthday cake for someone special, you went to Brenner's in Alexandria, Virginia. And it was easy to find excuses to stop there for all the in-between times too. Part cookbook, part ode to her father Max, Marcy Brenner weaves love, joy and warm aromas into one satisfying volume. 

 -- Susan Stuck, Food writer and former Alexandria resident 

"family, memories and recipes - a delight of the senses"

 Like an excellent cinnamon swirl, this memoir blends family history, loving memories and cherished original recipes - a delight for all of the senses.

 -- Karen Jones, broadcast journalist and author

"a world of love, work, and most of all ... treats"

In "A Baker's Daughter" Marcy Brenner recreates the world of her childhood--a world of love, work, and most of all, of delicious bakery treats. - Pat Garber, nature writer and poet

"buy (it for the) recipe. read it to feed your soul"

Buy A Baker's Daughter to get the Chocolate Top Cookie recipe. Read it to feed your soul. - Sara Bernstein, screenwriter

"the real treat is the stories"

Converting bakery-volume recipes for home cooks is no small feat, and  fans of Brenner’s Bakery will undoubtedly love this book for enabling  them to recreate their favorites to enjoy at home. But the real treat of  A Baker’s Daughter is the stories. Told with Marcy’s remarkable  clarity, wit, and introspection – in beautiful lyrical language that  reflects her roots as a singer-songwriter – these tales of the family  that made the bakery so beloved are as delicious and pleasurable as any  of the sweet indulgences the bakery offered.   

- Kati Wharton, Baking  & Pastry Arts student 

"Engaging and heartfelt story of an immigrant family."

Marcy Brenner’s book tells the engaging and heartfelt story of an immigrant family making its way in the American century. Rich with photographs, first-hand accounts and recipes to die for, “A Baker’s Daughter” recalls a time before Starbucks and Big Box stores when family-owned businesses served as places of comfort, community and continuity for America’s burgeoning middle class. So grab a sweater, a cup of tea, and Marcy Brenner’s book. At least for a while, life will be sweet again.

Leslie Siddeley, consultant and writer living in Alexandria, VA
