Description: A Cook's Tour of lowa By Susan Puckett A Cook's Tour of lowa is a treasure trove of kitchen-tested recipes spiced through with personal histories of the people and places that created them. Susan Puckett reveals an astonishing diversity of Midwestern cuisine from mom's home cooking to state fair winners to ethnic specialties that include Amish meat loaf, Indian fry bread, Dutch lettuce, and contucci cookies.
With obvious pleasure, Puckett paints a culinary portrait of lowa both past and present. All of the recipes included are lowa favorites and were recited by memory, shared from family files, or discovered in local collections. Even native lowans will be surprised by the ethnic, religious, and cultural differences Puckett uncovered as she gathered recipes at a Mesquakie Indian powwow, Houby Days, a graduation pig roast, and the Wilton Candy Kitchen.
No other cookbook provides such a vivid portrait of our state while at the same time satisfying even the most discerning taste buds. Putting to rest the myth that lowa's cuisine is bland and boring, Puckett reveals the distinctly delicious food ways of our state -- as mouth-watering and unexpected as they are wholesome.
