'In this beautifully illustrated book on the Dutch culinary tradition, Peter Rose has captured one important dimension of the proud legacy of Dutch contributions to American culture.' --Nancy Harmon Jenkins, Food Writer 'New York Times' and Editor, 'Journal of Gastronomy'
A translation of the most favored Dutch cookbook of the 17th century (the period of the Dutch claim to New Netherlands, the territory between New England and Virginia). Presented here are the foodways of middle-class households in the Netherlands and their American colonies, the implements and ingredients employed, cooking methods, and typical dishes. Rose has also included introductory material and a section of recipes adapted for modern kitchens. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
