Description: The title Saint Louis Days ... Saint Louis Nights symbolizes the diversity of culinary specialties prepared in St. Louis kitchens. Since its humble beginning as a French fur trapping outpost more than 300 years ago, the city has attracted people with wonderfully rich ethnic traditions. St. Louis cuisine, which is as varied as day and night, has been strongly influenced by this melting pot of nationalities and customs.
The incredible array of outstanding restaurants which covers the metropolitan area proves St. Louisians love to eat. The food is a unique mix of old and new, basic and elaborate. It includes everything from Midwestern meat and potatoes to the renowned Italian specialties from "the Hill" to the latest trends in fine cuisine.
St. Louis' famous culinary firsts include the ice cream cone and hot dog, which both originated from the 1904 World's Fair; toasted ravioli created by the Italian chef on "the Hill" who accidentally knocked a plate of ravioli into a pan of hot grease; and the sinfully rich Gooey Butter Cake that came from the German bakers in South St. Louis. The cookbook committee has attempted to present the best of St. Louis' own special and diverse cuisine in this cookbook of over 300 easy-to-follow recipes, including advice from over 30 popular Saint Louis area restaurants
