About Linda Hinton Brown | Norrinda Brown Hayat

Linda Hinton Brown | Norrinda Brown Hayat

The phrase “like mother, like daughter” certainly rings true for the authors of The Brown Betty Cookbook, Linda Hinton Brown and Norrinda Brown Hayat. Linda inherited her penchant for baking from her mother Betty, who regularly baked pies, cakes, and biscuits all week long, even before church on Sunday. Linda’s daughter Norrinda was in turn bitten by the same baking bug. Together they founded the beloved Brown Betty Dessert Boutique in Philadelphia, PA, in 2002.@brown-betty-dessert-boutique
