American Regional Cuisine

The culinary heritage of the United States is as rich and multifaceted as the nation itself. American Regional Cuisine celebrates everything that is different, distinctive, and delicious in the diverse traditions of American cooking—from New England Clam Chowder to Carolina Pulled Pork Barbecue, from Floribbean Grouper with Black Bean, Jicama, and Corn Salsa to San Francisco Cioppino.

This unique cookbook and guide to the finest in regional American cooking features recipes for 250 of the most popular and memorable dishes from eleven regional culinary traditions, including Cajun and Creole cuisine, Tex-Mex cuisine, and the cuisine of California and Hawaii. Grouped by region, these recipes are drawn from every part of the menu, offering a range of complete meals for each culinary style.

The book establishes a cultural and historical context and describes the indigenous ingredients, unusual techniques, and special touches that give each style of cooking its unique signature. Well-known chefs and restaurateurs introduce the cuisine of each region, from Michael Foley (owner of Printer's Row restaurant in Chicago) and Allen Susser (owner and executive chef of Chef Allen's in Miami) to Bert Cutino (owner of the Sardine Factory in Monterey, California).

Detailed, easy-to-follow instructions ensure that nothing is left to chance when it comes to preparing mouthwatering soups, tempting appetizers, and elegant entrées from every American culinary tradition. And more than 70 color and black-and-white photographs demonstrate cooking techniques and reveal the beauty of finished dishes.
