Publisher Comments:

Welcome to Cook's Country--a place where you'll learn what's cooking in kitchens across America. This debut collection from the editors of Cook's Country magazine celebrates the landscape of American home cooking from yesterday and today. In the tradition of great American cookbooks like The Fannie Farmer Cookbook and The Settlement Cookbook, The Cook's Country Cookbook is, at its core, a wide-ranging, comprehensive collection chock-full of beloved classics like roast chicken, beef stew, biscuits, blueberry pie, and more. In addition, the editors of Cook's Country magazine have also reached back in time to revive old favorites to suit modern tastes and lifestyles. Here you'll find Chicken Divan without the soup mix--only tender chicken and crisp broccoli blanketed in a velvety cheese sauce. You'll learn that it's possible to serve a from-scratch comfort food classic like meatloaf on a weeknight when time is tight: our mini-meatloaves cook in a fraction of the time of traditional versions. Discover fresh, new, and sometimes regional recipes that illuminate the depth and personality behind American cooking--recipes such as North Carolina Pulled Pork (a slow-cooker dish with real barbecue flavor); 24-Hour Salad (a make-ahead salad where the vegetables remain crisp and fresh); and King Ranch Casserole (a kid-friendly creamy chicken casserole with toasty corn chips and Southwestern spices, made famous by Lady Bird Johnson). In addition to foolproof recipes, The Cook's Country Cookbook also pulls back the curtain to reveal the often fascinating origins of classic American favorites, such as the use of breakfast cereal in party snack mixes or how Bundt pans gave rise to the popular cake. Muchmore than a collection of foolproof recipes, The Cook's Country Cookbook provides a lively, in-depth portrait of the great American table.

Synopsis:

From Angel Biscuits and King Ranch Casserole to Texas Sheet Cake and Apple Slab Pie; 500 Culinary Treasures that Celebrate the Great American Table.

How would you like to have a single unit reference book on the bookshelf that not only has the "how to" on the recipes but has already tested all aspects of preparation adding up to date twists. This is it! I've been enchanted with the clear directions for preparation and have so far been able to imitate a real chef in my own kitchen with results my family loved. You will even have your fears eliminated when attempting to make a new dish you have not made previously, they walk you step by step through the stages and in the end a miracle of flavor results..bon appetit! Don't forget to smile when your friends ask you for your secrets...I've even bought two for birthday presents.
