Martha's American Food: A Celebration of Our Nation's Most Treasured Dishes, from Coast to Coast Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this beautiful volume, a love letter to American food, Martha Stewart, who has so significantly influenced the American table, collects her most favorite national dishes, as well as the stories and traditions behind them. These are recipes that will delight you with nostalgia, inspire you, and teach you about our nation by way of its regions and their distinctive flavors. Above all, these are time-honored recipes that you will turn to again and again.

Organized geographically, the 200 recipes in Martha’s American Food include main dishes such as comforting Chicken Pot Pies, easy Grilled Fish Tacos, irresistible Barbecued Ribs, and hearty New England Clam Chowder. Here, too, are thoroughly modern starters, sides, and one-dish meals that harness the bounty of each region’s seasons and landscape: Hot Crab Dip, Tequila-Grilled Shrimp, Indiana Succotash, Chicken and Andouille Gumbo, Grilled Bacon-Wrapped Whitefish, and Whole-Wheat Spaghetti with Meyer Lemon, Arugula, and Pistachios. And you will want to leave room for dessert, with dozens of treats such as Chocolate-Bourbon Pecan Pie, New York Cheesecake, and Peach and Berry Cobbler.

Through sidebars about the flavors that define each region and stunning photography that brings the foods—and the places with which we identify them—to life, Martha celebrates the unique character of each part of the country. With all the dishes that inspire pride in our national cuisine, Martha’s American Food gathers, in one place, the recipes that will surely please your family and friends for generations to come. 

 

Review:

"With her trademark glossy imagery, Stewart has always sold an appealing version of Americana, and this latest addition to her cookbook library, focused on American cuisine, is no exception. Diverse and all-encompassing, this volume ranges from the date shakes of California to the Indian pudding of Massachusetts. Chapters are organized by region, starting with all-American dishes such as hamburgers, apple pie, and macaroni and cheese, and moving on to the specific foods of the Northeast, South, Midwest, Southwest, and West. Rustic, homey fare, like shrimp and grits and Texas sheet cake, dominates the proceedings, but in Stewart's hands, the tuna noodle casserole is updated with anchovies and artichoke hearts; the North Carolina — style pulled pork sandwich is served on homemade cornmeal rolls; and the pineapple upside-down cake relies on fresh fruit. The running 'Regional Flavor' highlights individual ingredients, such as clams and pineapple. Clear, reliable instruction, coupled with interesting facts and tidbits (did you know that Athens, Tex., is the black-eyed pea capital of the world?) make this a welcome addition to the canon."
