Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Fifth in the series that includes the best-selling Italy the Beautiful (Knapp, 1988) and France the Beautiful ( LJ 10/15/89), this big picture book features traditional recipes from around the country, very brief introductions to the various regions, and lots of color photographs. Recipes--grouped by courses of a meal rather than region--give little sense of regional identity; most are familiar and available elsewhere; the blown-up food photographs are more interesting than the postcard views of the country. Buy for demand. Better Homes & Gardens Book Club selection.

Contains the best chili and fried chicken you can imagine.
Julie
My only regret is that I'm limited to family and friends to buy the books, because I haven't been able to find a bookstore here in Colombia that sells the book.

All the traditional recipes. Great stories on their origin. Jummy cakes, delicious cookies. Fantastic holiday dinner ideas. Haven't found one recipe I didn't like. Easy to follow instructions. Me my mom and my sister all own a copy.
Lots of meat, not to many fish recipes :-( For the ones out there on diets, be careful with this book, the pictures alone have you smelling chocolate :-)

I'm from Colombia and ten years ago my daughter bought at her school's book fair this magnificent jewel. Since then, I was drawn to buy the rest of the Series and so far, I'm the proud owner of seven other books from the series. (France, China, Thailand, Mediterrenean, Italy, Mexico and America Of course)I've tried lots of recipies and they all tourn out to be marvelous delights to a very picky palate. Congratulations on this coulinary home run. My only regret is that I'm limited to family and friends to buy the books, because I haven't been able to find a bookstore here in Colombia that sells the book. So I'm courious to Know if there is some alternate way to adquire them that doesn't imply traveling to the states?

If you enjoy tasting the finest of foods that have been all time traditional favorites and you want to know how to prepare them yourself, this cookbook is for you. This book opens up the doors of cooking and makes you an instant expert. Contains the best chili and fried chicken you can imagine. I create 11 to 13 different pies every holiday and the pies comes from recipes right here. People think I am the best cook around, I wouldn't be without this book. The soups will imspire you to not only learn how to create these soups but come up with inventions of your own. Seriously, this book is a must have for someone that really wants to learn how to cook and needs a great recipe that will inspire them to continue. I have a whole library of cookbooks but this is my favorite one and the one that gave me the encouragement to make cooking my hobby. The chicken frickase is the all time best chicken recipe in the world. Make that and mashed potatoes and corn and you will have any man coming back for more.

If you've read my other reviews then you know I am a huge fan of "The Beautiful Cookbook" series. This one is filled with all of the American classics and some interesting facts about the origins of some of the foods we eat each and every day.
