The Author

Barb Pratzel is the girl with the mismatched socks, the one in the picture, who   once left a rewarding career as a science writer to cultivate her passion for great cooking and eating, through two landmark Madison WI businesses.  After the last pancake was served on the last day, when her second business succumbed to the disease of covid-19, she got back to the joy of writing, and authored a memoir overflowing with recipes.  Or is it a cookbook, awash in good stories.  Either way.
