Michelle Wildgen author of Bread and Butter Author talk & book Signing Thursday, April 10 at 7:00 p.m. Books & Company Britt and Leo have spent ten years running Winesap, the best restaurant in their small Pennsylvania town but are thrown off-kilter when their younger brother, Harry, opens his own hip little joint. Britt becomes fascinated by a customer. Their pastry chef, Hector, quits and reappears at Harry's restaurant. And Leo falls for his executive chef. Filled with hilarious insider detail, Bread and Butter is both an incisive novel of family and a gleeful romp through the inner workings of restaurant kitchens.
