The title of this cookbook represents two of my favorite food groups: “Muffins and Biscuits.”
So how could I not fall for this Chronicle Books cookbook, of which I received a review copy?
It’s by Heidi Gibson, chef and co-owner of The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen in San Francisco.
You might think, what does a grilled cheese sandwich maker know about biscuits and muffins? Plenty, it turns out. After all, in addition to those ooey-gooey sandwiches, the restaurant also sells fresh-baked muffins, biscuits and other baked goods.
Muffins and biscuits are among the easiest things to make. The trick is to use a gentle hand. You don’t want to overmix or overwork either of them, lest they will wind up tough.
