  • Leslie Stockard reveals some, not all, of her culinary secrets.

The season to be jolly is here, so Fat City is looking around for

holiday gift ideas, preferably the kind that can be eaten (or used to

make something that can be devoured).

Leslie Stockard, owner of the popular Waldo bruncheonette the Classic Cookie, has been putting up "Coming Soon" fliers around her cozy little restaurant lately.

The handbills announce that, beginning this Friday, she'll be selling copies of her new cookbook, You Asked For It: The Classic Cookie & Cafe Cookbook.


The title comes from the customers who have been nagging Stockard to

write a cookbook featuring her soups and featured breakfast and lunch

specials. She does not include the recipes for dishes on her current breakfast or lunch menu.

"If you want the recipe for the herbed-potato-and-sausage casserole," Stockard tells me (knowing how much I love this dish), "you'll have to come and work in the kitchen."

Stockard picks up her first shipment of the spiral-bound cookbooks on Thursday night and starts selling them Friday. The cookbooks, she says, retail for $19.95 and will be sold at the Classic Cookie, Rainy Day Books, Ambrosi Brothers, Bijin Salon & Day Spa, and Cosentino's Brookside Market.

Stockard will sign copies of her new cookbook at Rainy Day Books in Fairway on Saturday, December 18 from 3 to 4 p.m. and yes, Leslie will be serving cookies and muffins from her bakery and cafe.

The sad news is that recipes for those delicious muffins and cookies are not in the cookbook.
