Additional Details

Description: More than 500 great traditional recipes, old and new, are gathered together in this new larger-size version of a perennial best seller. It is a book that views our past in terms of the foods our forefathers ate and the drinks they drank.

Here you will find such all-American dishes as Indian pudding and succotash, apple pie and Kentucky burgoo. You will also find a wide variety of once-foreign flavors, contributed by immigrants from many lands, beefsteak and kidney pie, Swedish meatballs, veal grillades Louisiana, panettone, creme brulee.

Ours is not a "cuisine" such as homogeneous nations boast, but a rich potpourri of dishes and drinks that have evolved from the native bounty of this country and the cultures of a dozen others. The recipes were tested and adapted for use in modern kitchens by Helen McCully Associates, food consultants. Forty historic menus are included.
