Overview

This updated and redesigned edition of the best-selling cookbook Glorious American Food celebrates Christopher Idone’s trademark genius for exquisite menus and presentation. First published in 1985, it won both Best General Cookbook Award from the International Association of Culinary Professionals and the Photographers’ Annual Award. This modern edition includes both new and revised recipes as well as wine recommendations, and has been reformatted into a smaller, more kitchen-friendly trim size. Glorious American Food is a delicious and elegant tribute to our nation’s diverse cuisine. Idone offers more than 70 menus and 275 recipes representing the best of traditional and contemporary cooking from the Deep South to the Northwest, including regional classics like Louisiana Catfish, New Mexico Cocada, Kansas-style Barbecue Ribs, and New England Baked Beans. This original canon of recipes is inspired by the harvest of the land and the bounty of the sea and is deeply influenced by the wide spectrum of American culinary traditions. Lush color photographs serve as both inspiring recipe illustrations and a visual travel guide through the varied landscapes of the United States.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The color photos in this big book are lush and mouthwatering. The recipes, created by the author of Glorious Food, are arranged by locale of origin; New England clam chowder and Indian pudding, Pacific coast grilled salmon, hot New Mexico salad and gazpacho, Southern pecan pie and shrimp jambalaya. Each section begins with a description of the types of food indigenous to that particular area, followed by appetizing menus (with wine and serving suggestions) and recipes. Idone has done a marvelous job in this celebration of American food. 40,000 first printing; major ad/promo; first serial to McCall's, Vogue, Signature, Texas Home; BOMC featured alternate; Better Homes & Gardens Book Club, Garden Book Club and Readers Subscription Book Club alternates. Foreign rights: Random House. October 30
Library Journal
Originally published 20 years ago, when a new appreciation of our regional cuisines was emerging, this celebration of American food has a slightly smaller format but includes many of the dozens of color photographs-of both food and the American scene-that helped make the first volume so striking. Idone, who helped found the well-known Manhattan catering company Glorious Food, provides more than 70 menus, organized by region and ranging from a Yankee Fourth of July to a Wine Tasting Picnic from the West Coast. Many of the recipes have been revised, while others are new; the wine recommendations have also been updated, and there are now suggestions for beers from regional breweries. For most collections.

    Wonderful book!

    Beautifully illustrated, this cookbook gives you a real taste of regional American cuisine. Each section provides complete menus which are both elegant and unique while still retaining a rustic and earthy feel. I would recommend this book as a must for any serious home chef.
