Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Dating from the 1930s, featured in the Smithsonian, rocketing to unimagined heights of success and staying there for 60 years who would have guessed that "shoulder meat left over from the pork industry," blended with ham and canned as a luncheon meat would enjoy such glory? In SPAM: The Cookbook, Marguerite Patten (Marguerite Patten's Post-War Kitchen) offers 20 recipes (Thai SPAM Cakes; SPAM steaks in Port Wine); a concise history of SPAM (the visionary Jay C. Hormel beat the odds when he sold his brainchild to his father and then the world; by 1944, 90% of Hormel canned foods "were exported to various theaters of war"); quotes and excerpts from Nikita Kruschev, Monty Python and fan clubs; and much more world-wide SPAMiana. Pop-culture lovers will drool. Photos.

I love SPAM. I have done SPAM sushi, SPAM and eggs, SPAM Rancheros etc etc BUT lets talk about the book shall we?

This specific book is giant SPAM advertisement. It basically makes SPAM out tobe the seminole 20th cebntury icon next to Coca Cola and Sunberam bread etc etc, which in some ways, sure, it is. BUT, if I want SPAM advertisemnts, I would go to the web page. In that respect, the book sucks.

HOWEVER, it does provide the idea that those who really enjoy SPAM have recipes, and outlets than a mere sandwich. However, I am not awaiting for a cancer cure or ED prevention or the Rapture being delayed because someone fried some SPAM. The history was cool and reminded me alot of what its like to go to Hershey PA now.

SO, very few recipes, we learn the How Great Thou art of SPAM and thats about it.

This was a disappointment. Guess I was expecting more of a cookbook and less of a history of Spam.

This little gem is just the sort of cookbook I enjoy having in my cookbook collection. It's very informative so far as the history of Spam goes. And the recipes? Someone put their thinking cap of creativity on to create these recipes, and compile them in a book. The pictures only add to the overall book for a complete delight. Can I call Spam Americana? I think that's exactly what you get with this book. A bit of Americana.

Few foods have been as maligned and misunderstood as SPAM. I like SPAM. I like it best when it is sliced thin and fried to a salty crispness. This book is colorful, informative, full of recipes and nostalgic images. At the end of the day, you either like SPAM or you don't. I like SPAM : )

I had no idea, that SPAM had been around for a long time. This book tells about the history of Spam, going back into the 1930's. If our Economy stays in the shape it is at the present, We all may have to buy some SPAM. Also included is some great recipes.
