American Cookery: An Illustrated Cookbook of Regional America's Traditional Recipes from the Nation's Home Economics Teachers
American Cookery An Illustrated Cookbook of Regional America's Traditional Recipes from the Nation's Home Economics Teachers Author:Mary Anne Richards (Editor) Americana cookery -- it's as wonderful, varied, and exciting as the country itself! — It's full of the flavors of virtually every major cuisine in the world -- English... Spanish... French... African... Chinese... Japanese... German... Polynesian... Scandinavian... Russian. This list of national cuisines represented in American cookery is as long... more » as the log of nations who helped settle the New World.
It's replete with foods the Old World never dreamed of -- unusual grains like corn, never-before-seen seasonings like file powder, and hundreds of fish, shellfish, birds, and animals unique to the New World.
It's characterized by experimentation and adaptation -- the kind of innovation by which Spanish paella became Creole jambalaya... British salt fish became Hawaiian lomi lomi salmon... African okra stew became Southern and Creole gumbos... and Indian succotash became classic fare throughout the country.
It's typified by recipes like those which appear throughout this cookbook. Home-tested recipes served to generations of American families. Recipes shared by women proud of their contributions to our country's cuisine.
It's Americana cookery -- and it's yours in the pages which follow!« less
