Library Journal

Cornbread lovers rejoice! Dragonwagon (Passionate Vegetarian) explores the surprisingly vast world of all things cornmeal in her latest cookbook. Her passion for this humble foodstuff spans nearly 400 pages and over 200 recipes for not only cornbread but also muffins, tortillas, crackers, rolls, spoon breads, fritters, and more. Cornbread is particularly loved in America, and there are many regional differences that are conveniently delineated in a chart; southern cornbread, for example, consists primarily of cornmeal, whereas northern cornbread is generally half cornmeal and sweetened with sugar. The author also explores the global appeal of cornmeal, including recipes for Mexican-style corn spoon bread, tortillas, Latin American arepas, Greek cornbread, and Indian griddle cakes. Other chapters include recipes for yeasted cornbreads, pancakes, and side dishes and a section on how to use leftover cornbread. Numerous sidebars contain fascinating tidbits of history, sample menus, and cooking tips; a glossary and index are included. Although this title focuses solely on one the ingredient, the recipes are tempting and diverse, and the writing engaging. Recommended.
