Retro style, with comfort food for the twenty-first century.

Simple, delicious recipes combine with sassy retro illustrations to make this cookbook fun to use or give as a gift. Featuring favorites from a popular eatery in Madison, Wisconsin, The Blue Plate Diner Cookbook lies flat for easy use and includes Soups, Salads, Big Bowls, Sandwiches, Pasta, Entrees, Kids, and Desserts.

Tim Lloyd cooks for Monty’s Blue Plate Diner, inspired by his father, who was a ship’s cook, and his grandmother, a natural gourmet. James Novak believes “eating is a sacred function where friends and family gather together.” He retired from the Buy Right Purchasing Group, which supplies independent restaurants in the Madison area.
