Glorious American Foodby Christopher Idone, Tom Eckerle (Photographer)
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.
