Additional Details

Description: The Heart of Pittsburgh is a collection of more than 300 kitchen-tested recipes submitted by the families and friends of Sacred Heart Elementary School. Inspired by our school's 125th Anniversary serving the East End of Pittsburgh, PA, the book is a celebration of our city's cultural diversity, our rich ethnic heritage, and most of all, our food! 

From its impressive skyline to the more than 500 bridges spanning three rivers, Pittsburgh has a wealth of opportunities and experiences to offer. Industry, business, higher education, the arts, museums, libraries, hospitals, research facilities, festivals and sports all help to enrich our lives. Especially enticing from the heart of our city is the selection of available foods. With eighty-eight culturally diverse neighborhoods, a vast array of ethnic and American cuisine can be found. Sample this fare at a sidewalk stand, an ethnic church or synagogue's food festival, a cafe or bistro. One may also lunch within a museum, nosh while listening to local musicians, dine waterside or cliffside, or spend the night at a bed & breakfast and enjoy scrumptious fare in the morning. 

The Heart of Pittsburgh contains 13 sections, each introduced by a brief historical sketch of one of the many neighborhoods that make Pittsburgh so special. We've included our friends' and families' favorite hors d'oeuvres, beverages, marinades, sauces, breads, soups, salads, entrees, side dishes, vegetables and desserts. As an added feature, we have included some "Uniquely Pittsburgh" recipes in the final section of our book. We hope you will enjoy these recipes as much as we have enjoyed testing them, and that perhaps some day one of them will make its way into your family's culinary heritage.
