Notes: The Kitchen Table BBS - "I spent some time as the Chef at Ruby Tuesday's Cafe in Sutter Creek, California a few years back. The owner of the place, Ray, had a wonderful recipe for lemon bread that has been re-printed in both Gourmet and Bon Apetit Magazines. It is some work, but worth every minute of effort.--Jeff Hanneman/Buster/Mcrecipe 1998-Apr-06 Recipe by: Ruby Tuesday's Cafe, Sutter Creek, CA Posted to MC-Recipe Digest by KitPATh <phannema@...> on Apr 06, 1998
