The excitement of cooking from the American Heritage Cookbook has never ended for me. The recipes are truly delicious and the historical blurbs give one food for thought. Although the recipes are certainly not according to present day nutritional guidelines the palate will be more than satisfied.

An interesting history of the diet of the Americas. It is great for hands on teaching of the combinations of peoples that settled this area and their contributions to todays diets. From Mush for the week and shoe fly pie as a celebration to todays mixed meals.

This book is fabulous. It combines the history of cooking, in America, with a cookbook that details many of the recipes it highlights. These are not modern recipes; these are historical recipes. They don't contain ready-made add-ins, nor have they been tinkered with, to allow them to be cooked in the microwave, but if you are interested in cooking, (for reasons other than sustenance), this book is VERY interesting and VERY rewarding. I highly recommend it. Even if you never make one of the recipes, the book is fascinating all by itself. You will learn SO many things that you never would have known, otherwise... from how common measures came about, to how a meal was ordered in an inn as travelers moved along the roads of a bygone era. Just fascinating.

My family has special memories of dinners and family gatherings in which a number of the historical American recipes in this book were featured and became such favorites. When our son was in college on the Oregon Coast, we brought pots of the delicious recipes that he shared with dorm mates. I lost my copy of the book and only recently was so blessed to locate a copy in excellent condition.

This was a gift for my niece and she was so excited when she got it. It's an excellent resource for recipes and includes a history behind the recipes. She loves it.
