From Book Introduction: Culinary ingenuity has never been more thrillingly demonstrated than during the biblical exodus from Egypt...The first American colonists could well be considered the cultural descendants of those ancient hebrews, for neither was a nomadic people; each was "going home," as they said...In the hands of the pioneer the use of indigenous material evolves, expands and takes on the aroma, the savor and the gusto of the culture that bred them. Thus a new cuisine develops, built on the ways of the old and strengthened by the new.

I say: A very interesting, historical cookbook. A sampling of the recipes; Cider Vinegar; Salt Rising Bread; Wild Onions and Scrambled Eggs; Egg Foam Dumplings; Pastramized Beef; Horseradish Sauce;Picled Nasturtium Seeds; Quince Honey.
