Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Although Smith and Hazan (coauthors of The Original Philadelphia Neighborhood Cookbook ) ladle up some serviceable recipes, this work remains ordinary because it reveals little of Baltimore's unique character. Each recipe is identified with an area of the city--for example, baked winter squash comes from ``Cross Street Market, Federal Hill''--but such notes will make sense only to readers already familiar with the city. As for the dishes themselves, many, such as oxtail stew and chicken pie with sour cream pastry, make satisfying family meals, while others, like veal Marsala and lobster and crab Benjamin, are fancy enough for parties. And some, like Brazilian baked shrimp with coconut sauce, German hot cabbage salad and two versions of bul-go-gi (Korean barbecued beef), hint at the city's cultural diversity. But a few offerings, such as meatloaf surprise (the ``surprise'' is cheddar cheese) and a chicken with rice made with canned soups, are so commonplace that it is difficult to see why they're included. Illustrated.

By wogan TOP 500 REVIEWER on March 4, 2016
Format: Paperback
Baltimore is a city that was founded by many different immigrants. The authors collected recipes from 50 of those neighborhoods, so this is a book with many varying styles of food.
It contains; appetizers, soups, salads, meat and fowl, fish and shellfish, vegetables, pasta and rice, dressings and sauces, breads, pizza and sandwiches and desserts.

There are black and white illustrations, but none of the dishes themselves. There is information included on Baltimore’s markets and the city itself.
Several crab cake recipes, of course are included, but our favorite has been the baked fish which uses onion soup mix – it gives a different twist to a fish dish.
This is a book for those who like varied recipes. Some are easy, others a bit more complicated, but nothing that difficult to prepare.
