Publisher Comments:

In a great, friendly, and indispensable book, Sheila Lukins, America's most trusted home cook and co-author of The Silver Palate Cookbooks and The New Basics Cookbook, rediscovers, interprets, and transforms the best of American tastes and ingredients. Over 600 recipes, from Roasted and Fresh Vegetable Gazpacho to Smothered Beef Shanks, Super Bowl Clambake to Chocolate-Pecan Banana Cream Pie, combine the sophisticated and homespun to create pure culinary dazzle. Pride of place is given throughout to fresh and dried chiles, wild rice, Walla Walla onions, Western beef, cranberries, maple syrup, morels, and seafood right from our bays, rivers, and oceans. Featuring great American wines, beers, and cheese, plus regional and holiday specialties with a twist.
