    Historic trip through America's kitchen

    I love this book. Borrowed it from the library and am ordering my own copy. The names of the recipes evoked such fond memories of foods that I had once tasted or heard of and thought were long gone. Each page has an explanation of the origin of the dish. Best of all, each recipe was tested, update or simplified where needed while maintaining the integrity of the original. A true trip down Memory Lane. Reads like a novel. Bravo!!

    nostalgic memories

    I married a coking teacher, we just celebrated our 39th anniversary. I surprised her with the book, She immediately sat down, stopped what she was doing, started underlining passages and started audibly commenting 'oh my', 'isn't this wondeful' 'I remember when grandma made that' She's sending copies to her sister, aunt and daughter in laws.

    A reviewer

    Most of the recipes are for breads, cakes or desserts. I've tried two of the recipes so far 'Brooklyn Cheese Puffs and Summer Squash Souffle', and actually have given up on the book on that basis. It is not a cook book for serious cooks.
