Publisher Comments:

Since the 2004 opening of the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC, the museum's Mitsitam Cafe (mitsitam means "let's eat" in the Piscataway and Delaware languages) has become a destination in its own right. Featured on Rachael Ray's television show and praised by reviewers nationwide, the Mitsitam Cafecontinues to receive accolades from both critics and visitors.

Drawing upon tribal culinary traditions from five regions—Northern Woodlands, Great Plains, North Pacific Coast, Mesoamerica, and South America—the cafe's offerings feature staples that were once unknown in the rest of the world in dishes such as:

  • Squash Blossom Soup
  • Cedar-Planked, Fire-Roasted Salmon
  • Pulled Buffalo Sandwich with Chayote Slaw
  • Corn and Tomato Stew
  • Cranberry Crumble

Replete with beautiful photographs of the finished dishes as well as objects and archival photographs from the museum's vast collections, The Mitsitam Cafe Cookbook showcases the Americas' truly indigenous foods in ninety easy-to-follow, home-tested recipes.

A 1995 graduate of the Baltimore International Culinary College, author Richard Hetzler worked at several fine-dining restaurants in the Washington, DC, and Baltimore area before joining the food-service firm Restaurant Associates at the Smithsonian. Hetzler was on the team that researched and developed the groundbreaking concept for the Mitsitam Cafe: serving indigenous foods that are the staples of five Native culture areas in North and South America. As the executive chef of the cafe, he continues to create and refine seasonal menus that showcase the Americas' native bounty.

Synopsis:

A gift book for food lovers, showcasing ninety authentic recipes from the Americas' indigenous populations in conjuction with the Smithsonian Institution.

Gary Becker, August 9, 2012 (view all comments by Gary Becker)
Oh man, my wife and I loved this book. Every page is full of history on the people and the food stuffs along with recipes to make some of the tastiest dishes you could imagine--the chef, Richard Hetzler, is a genius in his own right. Interesting enough the foods seem to represent a cross of Apache, Southwest and Hispanic tastes. We had an Apache stew in out travels in Arizona, but could never find any acceptable recipes, we have one now and have made it a couple of times...that along with fry bread, what a treat! As a bonus they show pictures of their pottery, costumes, artworks, stitchery and landscapes-it's a good read and wonderful addition to our book collections. Kudos to the Smithsonian for putting together such a dear treasure!
