Absolutely Outstanding ! May 29, 2006
Not just a great collection of recipes, this book has many wonderful little-known facts of American culinary history, such as the rise of "victory gardens," how the Caeser salad came about, and the origins of a ton of classic american dishes. It doesn't just give you the facts in list fashion: the author does an excellent job of summarizing the relevant time period and explaining why certain foods were preferred by people and how they came to be. I'm in my 30's and I love it just for the history! A+++!
Great Book for Kids! May 7, 2004
This book is wonderful. My child took it out from the school library several times so we could try different recipies. I've decided to buy it since we both enjoy it so much.
