Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Serve up a heaping lesson of history with delicious recipes from our nation’s past–– from the pilgrims’ first feast to today’s high-tech, low-fat fare

Who knew history could be so delicious? In The U.S. History Cookbook, you’ll discover how Americans have lived and dined over the centuries. This scrumptious survey of periods and events in U.S. history mixes together a delectable batter of food timelines, kid-friendly recipes, and fun food facts throughout each chapter, including such fascinating tidbits as: Sunday was baked bean day in many colonial family homes; pioneers took advantage of the rough trails to churn milk into butter; the Girl Scouts first started selling cookies in the 1930s to save money for summer camp; and so much more!

Kids will have a great time learning about the past while they cook up easy and yummy recipes, including:

  • Cornmeal Blueberry Mush, a favorite dish of the Native Americans of the Northeast
  • King Cake, the traditional cake served at the Mardi Gras Festival in New Orleans, Louisiana
  • Amazing Country Scrambled Eggs, an essential part of any hearty pioneer breakfast
  • Cocoanut Pudding, a favorite dessert of travelers riding the transcontinental railroad in the 1870s
  • Baked Macaroni ’N’ Cheese, a popular and inexpensive dish enjoyed during the Depression

The U.S. History Cookbook also includes information on cooking tools and skills, with important rules for kitchen safety and clean up.

Format: Paperback
Not just a great collection of recipes, this book has many wonderful little-known facts of American culinary history, such as the rise of "victory gardens," how the Caeser salad came about, and the origins of a ton of classic american dishes. It doesn't just give you the facts in list fashion: the author does an excellent job of summarizing the relevant time period and explaining why certain foods were preferred by people and how they came to be. I'm in my 30's and I love it just for the history! A+++!

This book links history with real people and events. It brings the people to life in a very immediate way, and includes recipes which can give you a personal experience with the food they would have eaten.

I purchased this book to supplement info used to teach a children's history session on food in US history. It had many fun facts. The recipes were especially good to use in a take home handout.
