Description: Madison County Cookbook is a taste of cooking from the "heart" of the Heartland, Madison County, Iowa. Madison County is also the birthplace of John Wayne and the home of the picturesque Covered Bridges, the locale for the popular Bridges of Madison County by Robert Waller.
Madison County Cookbook is an effort spearheaded by the members of St. Joseph's Parish and friends in Madison County, offering a unique look at a small community where the simple values of faith, family, and friends have not been forgotten. Madison County Cookbook was written to celebrate food, families, friends, and festivals. Here you will find recipes that are family favorites reflective of the heartland, an amalgam of different nationalities which have been passed down from one generation to another and evoke warm and happy memories when served to family and special guests. Over five hundred different recipes are featured, often with a story behind them. Many are old fashioned down-home country recipes starting from scratch; others come from ethnic backgrounds. A wide spectrum is included: applesauce cake to marinade for pork chops, meatless main dishes, decadent desserts, homemade breads many of them used in family festivals and on holidays.
Condition: Cover and interior pages are in very nice condition.
