Description:  An eastern gourmet, it is said, once wrote off the entire Midwest as a vast gustatorial desert. This book, the first "all-Cincinnati" cook book ever published, certainly gives the lie to that opinion -- at least as far as Cincinnati is concerned. 

In these pages can be found pioneer family "receipts" well over a hundred years old, modern "quickie" dishes, and prize recipes from Cincinnati restaurants which enjoy national reputations. Here are dishes originating in eastern and southern states, and authentic specialties from the "Old Country" backgrounds of Cincinnatians. 

Cincinnati cookery truly reflects our diversified heritage. Cincinnati was for many years a favored goal as well as a popular staging area for westward-bound Americans. The first settlers came from New England. Soon enterprising Scotch-Irish traders from Fort Pitt were joined by men from the Atlantic seaboard who had capital to invest and who saw Cincinnati as the key to a great trading area. Later on German immigrants as well as other Europeans settled here and contributed further to Cincinnati's distinctive character.
