For Julia Pandl, the rite of passage into young-adulthood included mandatory service at her family's restaurant, where she watched as her father--who was also the chef--ruled with the strictness of a drill sergeant. At age twelve, Julie was initiated into the rite of the Sunday brunch, a weekly madhouse at her father's Milwaukee-based restaurant, where she and her eight older siblings before her did service in a situation of controlled chaos, learning the ropes of the family business and, more important, learning life lessons that would shape them for all the years to come. In her wry memoir, she looks back on those formative years, a time not just of growing up but, ultimately, of becoming a source of strength and support as the world her father knew began to change into a tougher, less welcoming place. Part coming-of-age story a` la The Tender Bar , part win- dow into the mysteries of the restaurant business a` la Kitchen Confidential , Julie Pandl provides tender wisdom about the bonds between fathers and daughters and about the simple pleasures that lie in the daily ritual of breaking bread. This honest and exuberant memoir marks the debut of a writer who discovers that humor exists in even the smallest details of our lives and that the biggest moments we ever experience can happen behind the pancake station at the Sunday brunch.

display_description At the age of twelve, Julia Pandl was initiated into the ritual of the Sunday brunch at her father's Milwaukee-based restaurant, a weekly madhouse where she--and her eight siblings before her--learned not just the family business but also life lessons that would shape them for years to come. Now, looking back on those years, she tells a story that is part childhood memories, part a window into the mysteries of the restaurant business.
