Three brothers running two restaurants out of their suburban Philadelphia hometown serves as the base layer of Bread and Butter (2014, Doubleday), the third and newest novel by Madison writer Michelle Wildgen. She also folds in romance, family drama and an insider’s view into the workings of a restaurant. But Wildgen’s honest portrayal of sibling rivalry is a distinct highlight, one as tantalizing as the culinary concoctions she so beautifully describes.
