About the Author

Theresa Wahl is the chef and owner of retro-hip hotspot Auntie Em's Kitchen in L.A.'s Eagle Rock neighborhood. In the 1990s, Terri was a singer and guitarist for the Red Aunts, an all-female punk band that toured the U.S. for a decade. Her travels inspired a love of hearty American home cooking, and when she retired from performing she started catering gigs for bands and their crews. This led to the 2002 opening of Auntie Em's Kitchen, where she quickly developed a following for her baked goods and comfort food with a punk-rock edge. Wahl lives in Eagle Rock with her two dogs and several chickens.


"Tenacious D loves Auntie Em's. Her delicious nutrients are always energizing and indie-fresh. Where does she find those unbelievable recipes? Somewhere over the rainbow?"
--Jack Black (of the D)

"This cookbook is a gem, especially for a foodie who loves music. Beautifully photographed, the book features mouthwatering recipes from Auntie Em's Kitchen in Eagle Rock, and she pairs them with a playlist. Combining the talents of her old profession as a punk rock guitarist with her newer one in the restaurant business is such a great idea! This book will fly off shelves."
-- Margot Ferris, Pages Bookstore, Manhattan Beach

"I'm excited to finally be able to bring Terri Wahl's world home with me to recreate the inimitable Auntie Em's vibe at home. I'll throw on some '80s English punk on the stereo (Siouxsie & the Banshees "Kaleidoscope," perhaps), gather my friends and loved ones on my porch, and pogo around the kitchen while I cook up some of my fave cravings: Mabel's Short Stack, the best grits and eggs this side of the Mississippi, and that amazing coconut cake."
--Kate Schellenbach, Luscious Jackson & Beastie Boys

"I like to go to the races at Hollywood Park, but I don't usually win with the horses, so afterward I go to Auntie Em's and drown my sorrows in a red velvet cupcake. It never fails me."
--Russell Mael, Sparks

"The first time I went to Auntie Em's, I knew this was my place. I love everything about it and could eat there everyday. Of course that means I'd be eating a cupcake everyday and I just can't have that."
--Josh Klinghoffer, Red Hot Chili Peppers

"Anyone with an appreciation for homey and scrumptious food will love this book."
--LA Weekly Squid Ink
