Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Loomis, author of the excellent Great American Seafood Cookbook ( LJ 10/15/88), spent several years criss-crossing the country in search of ``the soul of the American family farm.'' Here she presents 300 recipes, some from the families she met, some her own, along with a great deal of information about the farmers themselves and what they produce. While all the recipes are good, a few seem somewhat out of sync with the rest of the book (e.g., Grilled Shrimp in Chile Marinade with Three Melons), and some readers may find the headnotes and sidebars overly long. Glenn Andrews's recent Food from the Heartland ( LJ 4/15/91) provides a good, though more limited, look at farm cooking; still, Loomis's latest should prove popular too. BOMC HomeStyle alternate; Better Homes & Garden alternate.

    Has THE BEST enchilada recipe EVER

    I enjoyed reading about the different farms the author visited. Each has a unique area of expertise and an interesting story. One featured farm is the Christopher Ranch in Gilroy, CA, which is famous for the garlic they grow. Mary Navarette's Garlic Chicken Enchiladas is hands-down the best and most unique enchilada I've ever made or eaten. It's just fabulous. The price of the book is worth it just to get this recipe. However, there are many other good recipes in the book also.

    The Best Home Cooking Ever

    I've had a lot of cookbooks and worked in a lot of kitchens. In my opinion, this is the best home cooking cookbook ever. The recipes are easy to follow and the tastes are magnificent.

    OH So good!

    Everything in this cookbook is GREAT! I've had it for 10 years, and have loved everything i've made. As on the farm, butter & oil are used generously, and if you want to be a bit more healthy, you can make some substitutes. But still use some of the original stuff. I've done it without spoiling the tastes.
