Britt and Leo have spent ten years establishing Winesap as the best restaurant in their small Pennsylvania town. They cater to their loyal customers, they don't sleep with the staff, and business is good, even if their temperamental pastry chef is bored with making the same chocolate cake night after night.
But when their dilettante younger brother, Harry, opens his own restaurant, Britt and Leo find their lives thrown off-kilter. Important employees quit and reappear in Harry's kitchen, their "classic" menu starts to seem overly safe, and romance threatens to bubble up in the most inconvenient of places. As the brothers struggle to find a new family dynamic, Bread and Butter proves to be a dazzling novel that's as much about siblinghood as it is about the mysterious world behind the kitchen door.
