Only complaint - this is more a history and less a cookbook. There are some excellent recipes, but there are other chapters where the recipes get minimal attention. I understand that they couldn't get the original recipes in some cases, but I was still disappointed by the jucy lucy and turkey sandwich recipes in particular. Perhaps these chapters only came up short because other chapters had multiple takes on the sandwich from a variety of perspectives. It's still a strong book and highly recommended for anyone who likes Minnesota food or Minnesota history.
As a companion to this book, I also highly recommend Beth Dooley and Lucia Watson's cookbook - Savoring The Seasons of the Northern Heartland. It's referred to in this book in the pasty chapter (their take on Eleanor Ostman's mother's recipe was not without controversy). It's back in print again and is very, very solid. Minnesota cooking without the condensed soup.
