"This colorfully illustrated collection celebrates iconic American cooking with generally easily reproduced dishes that will delight people for a family dinner or for a special event . . . Batali makes every dish look like great fun, and it's impossible not to share his enthusiasm. His popularity alone will make this a required purchase . . . but the variety of content will be welcomed by even those who aren't already fans."―Mark Knoblauch, Booklist
"Culinary details, as well as Batali's essays on his two-year journey across the U.S. (which include further recommendations), set this volume apart from its peers . . . Batali fans and collectors of Americana will appreciate this reliable and well-curated compendium."―Publishers Weekly
"There's not an ounce of pretense amid the 250-plus dishes that comprise the celeb chef's latest offering. Instead, you'll find Batali's talented take on old-school regional fare."―Modern Farmer

Some recipes I flagged, by region:

Great Lakes - Pierogies, Fried Cheese Curds, Chicago Deep Dish Pizza, and U.P. Pasties

Southwest - Posole, Lockhart BBQ Brisket, Navajo Frybread Tacos, and Pork Tamales
Pacific Coast - Dungeness Crab Quiche, Pear and Hazelnut Salad, Fisherman's Wharf Cioppino, Coachella Date Shakes
1) The first thing I made was the New England Clam Chowder. It was absolutely wonderful.
2) Dungeness Crab Quiche. Fantastic! The half pound of crab brings that flavor and texture front and center. The quiche is very custardy.
3) Chicken and Shrimp Gumbo. Perfect and done in less than 4 hours, with less than an hour hands-on.
4-5) Texas Bowl of Red. That is some good chili! 8 reconstituted ancho chiles and 3 chipotles makes this really flavorful and smoky, without a ton of heat.
6) Navajo Frybread Tacos! One of my favorite guilty pleasures, and these are great. The recipe uses leftover chili from Texas Bowl of Red, so save some!
7) Chicago Deep-Dish Pizza. Terrific flavor! It was a little wet, though. I'm wondering if that should have said regular mozzarella instead of fresh mozzarella.
I can't wait to try out the other recipes! I'll be sure to update this as I do. If you don't have it yet, I think Molto Italiano: 327 Simple Italian Recipes to Cook at Home is his best book.
