Description:  The Bicentennial Cookbook is a wonderfully distinctive blend of delightful menus in the proud tradition of America's Bicentennial spirit. Here is an inspiring collection of individual recipes and complete menus from hot spinach hors d'oeuvres to mocha walnut tortes. Divided into eight different categories from breakfast, brunch and lunch to cocktails and hor d'oevres, dinner, supper, men in the kitchen and holiday cooking, this unusual cookbook is stuffed with tempting dishes to excite your family, delight your guests and awaken your cooking creativity. 

The recipes have all been contributed by members of the Philadelphia Junior League. Some have been carefully guarded secrets until now; some have historically documented origins; and some have been collected from a myriad of long-forgotten sources; but all have been taste-tested and promise to please the eye and the palate. 

Accompanying each chapter is a magnificent photographic collection of revolutionary homes from the eight counties represented by the Junior League of Philadelphia. Each home illustrates a different type of architecture and life-style and appropriately highlights the subject of the chapter it represents.
