Overview

The author of The Route 66 Cookbook (75,000 sold, see below) brings us another culinary tour down the historic "Main Street of America."

Editorial Reviews

Chicago Tribune
"This deceptively compact book has the capacity of a Winnebago."
Library Journal
Clark (The Route 66 Cookbook, LJ 12/93) has gone back to "Main Street," traveling once again along the entire route of the old highway, from Illinois to California, to see how this part of America has changed. Some communities have been revitalized, while others have just about disappeared. At some stops, Clark found new young chefs serving innovative contemporary fare, while at others she revisited diners and cafs ("classic remains") still dishing up the homespun food they've always been known for. In addition to recipes from Clark's favorite restaurants, as well as from many home cooks, there is information on "What To See," "Where To Eat," and "Where To Stay" in dozens of towns and cities along the way. Clark writes well, and she's discovered some fascinating oldand newplaces to visit. Recommended for both cookery and travel collections.

    Great regional food!

    If you want to know more about food in a cultural context, the recipes here reflect the best from 2400 miles of America. I especially liked the okra and black euyed pea recipes from Texas and Oklahoma and the spicy dishes of New Mexico and Arizona. Everything I have tried has been good.
