The Great American Cookbook: 500 Time-Tested Recipes: Favorite Food from Every State! (Revised)

By Molly O’Neill, Clementine Paddleford, Kelly Alexander – Rizzoli International Publications, Incorporated (2011) – Hardback – 848 pages – ISBN 0847836908 The first and greatest book of regional American cuisine, now revised for today�s home cook. Imagine a person with the culinary acumen of Julia Child, the inquisitiveness of Margaret Mead, and the daring of Amelia Earhart. This is Clementine Paddleford, America�s first food journalist. In the 1930s, Paddleford set out to do something no one had done before: chronicle regional American food. Writing for the New York Herald Tribune, Gourmet, and This Week, she crisscrossed the nation, piloting a propeller plane, to interview real home cooks and discover their local specialties.The Great American Cookbook is the culmination of Paddleford�s career. A best seller when first published in 1960 as How America Eats, this coveted classic has been out of print for thirty years. Here are more than 500 of Paddleford�s best recipes, all adapted for contemporary kitchens. From New England there is Real Clam Chowder; from the South, Fresh Peach Ice Cream; from the Southwest, Albondigas Soup; from California, Arroz con Pollo. Behind all the recipes are extraordinary stories, which make this not just a cookbook but also a portrait of America.
