Williams-Sonoma Breakfast Comforts

Rick Rodgers Breakfast Comforts

Feather-light pancakes dripping with maple syrup; cinnamon-scented pastry warm from the oven; savory eggs paired with crisp bacon, and served with flaky biscuits and homemade jam… These mouthwatering icons of the breakfast table carry with them warm memories of relaxed, slow-paced mornings shared with loved ones.  Details? Read on...

I've gathered all of these treasures and more in Williams-Sonoma Breakfast Comforts, which has just been released. For the time being, you'll be able to get it at any of the over 200 W-S stores. Eventually, it will be available in the catalog, and in April, you will be able to buy it at regular book outlets (and here!) While loved every morsel of the recipes that I developed for the book, Breakfast Comforts also includes breakfast specialties from sixteen hand-picked restaurants famous for their morning meals. I was especially pleased to include recipes from my friends Ellen and Dan Einstein at Sweet 16th Bakery in Nashville and Manhattan's Goddess of Bakedom,Sarabeth Levine of Sarabeth's Restaurants. I will be posting a few of the recipes here, starting with one of my all-time favorites and sure-fire diet busters, Golden Cornmeal Waffles with Fried Chicken.

Ohhhh, Rick, I just found it at the W-S today! Gorgeous! Congratulations and great work! I am particularly excited to try the "Grittata."

I loved every class and your events while I worked at The Silo in New Milford, CT. I have since moved South to Charlotte, NC (the reason I left The Silo). I miss the fun at The Silo and your wonderful classes. BBQ 101 was a favorite.

It looks gorgeous. I'm off to W-S to turn it face out in the shelf.

Sure do miss your cooking classes at Cooking Adventures in Wayne New Jersey. I was hoping somebody would take it over so I could keep taking your classes. Not only do I miss them but my whole family enjoyed what I made when I came home from your classes, and they miss the new and exciting recipes that I would bring home. If you are ever doing any classes in the area please be sure to let me know.
