About this Item

288 pages. Softcover. New book. COOKBOOKS. When a small-town cafe in Osseo, Wisconsin, was praised for "some of the world's best pies" in the best-selling guidebook Roadfood, Helen Myhre and the Norske Nook became famous! The same home-cooking tips Helen shared on Late Night with David Letterman she now shares with you. From breads to gravies, meats to jellies, and of course, that celebrated sour cream raisin pie, Myhre shows you how to bring a rich, thick slice of Midwest cooking into your kitchen. "This is more than a cookbook. It's a big, sweet slice of genuine Midwest Americana."ÑJane and Michael Stern, authors of a Roadfood and Eat Your Way Across America "The secret ingredients in Helen's pie crustÑ which must be the best pie crust anywhereÑare here revealed, at last!"ÑMichael Feldman, author and radio host of Whaddya Know? "This book makes me feel like a member of the Myhre family. Helen pulls out a dining room chair, inviting me to sit for a spell. Over melt-in-the-mouth pot roast and pie, we catch up on the kids and the locals who give Osseo its Lake Wobegon qualities. I'm back home again."ÑJoanne Stuttgen, author of Caf Wisconsin "Helen Myhre says two things are important for good farm cooking: your hands ('you have to dig in . . . to know how things should look and feel') and butter ('lots of butter'). I'll add one more thing: this cookbook. Helen makes me listen, laugh, and learn."ÑTerese Allen, author of Hometown Flavor and Fresh Market Wisconsin Helen Myhre, a farm wife before she founded the Norske Nook, has retired and still lives in Osseo, Wisconsin. Mona Vold is a journalist and writer who also lives in the area. The Norske Nook still welcomes hungry visitors to downtown Osseo in Northwest Wisconsin, just off Interstate 94.

From the Inside Flap:

le, plentiful meals made with wholesome ingredients have earned national acclaim for the Norske Nook in Osseo, Wisconsin. Now the restaurant's founder, Helen Myhre, shares the recipes and philosophy behind her remarkable success.

Plain and unassuming, this dynamo of a cafe is popular not only with local visitors but also with tourists and celebrities across the country. For years cars from everywhere have lined Osseo's streets, but since Helen was featured on "NBC News" and appeared on "Late Night with David Letterman" to teach the host how to make a good pie, helicopters even land in the church parking lot bringing diners eager for honest home cooking and a glimpse of the real-life" Queen of Pies."

Now, at last, this entrepreneur, who "never expected I'd own a restaurant," has given us a compilation of her simple, reliable, time-honored recipes. More than a cookbook, this charming collection teaches such intangibles as the "feel&q
