This is a bold and imaginative cookery book. Eggers shows flair with a daring East/West fusion in her Thai influenced Spam with Mint and Brocoli: tender chunks of luncheon loaf stir-fried with fish sauce, chili, brown sugar and brocoli then topped with fresh mint. Look out too for her Spam en Croute - slab of reconstituted pork coated in a rich mushroom pate and wrapped in filo pastry. It's a triumph. That distinctive taste of the abbatoir floor you get with Spam comes through best, perhaps, in a simple yet delicious Spam Tartare - raw Spam, ground with anchovies, egg yolk, mustard, oil and Worcestershire Sauce. Mmmmmm. Heaven.

SPAM was well known as a comfort food while I was growing up. Whenever my mother was feeling a touch of nostalgia, she would mix up a batch of SPAM victory buns and stick them in the oven. Her mother made them for her when she was a kid and fixing SPAM victory buns would bring back warm memories for my mom. Now, away from home, I have my own kitchen and the SPAM cookbook has made a nice addition. The recipes are quick and easy to make, which is a definite plus in my life. As a nursing student, I have little time for cooking large meals for myself, so many of the recipes within the SPAM cookbook are ideal for my lifestyle! The distinctive cover has caught the eye of several of my friends while they were in my kitchen and have loved the idea! So! Now I know what to get them for Christmas!! Congratulations on a keen idea and a great gift goodie!

I very much enjoyed this book. I knew virtually nothing about Spam or how to prepare it. The book is great fun and always generates smiles from my friends. In fact, I'm in the restaurant business and have given the book to friends in both tbe catering and restaurant business. A couple of friend and I have bought the entire inventory from several local bookstores to give to all her staff. Who knows, this book just might make Spam as popular in the contiguous 48 states as it is in Hawaii.
Great job, Ms. Eggers! What's next?

Linda Egger's little book of Spam recipes, Spam: The Cookbook, is a must for all of us Spam (the food) lovers. Die-cut in the size and shape of a Spam can, the gift book has over 40 traditional and new-use recipes from "Main Street" kitchens across the country.
The book is divided into six U.S. regions - including four Hawaiian Spam recipes! - with enough Spam recipes for any Spam lover's taste. I haven't tried them all, but I particularly liked the taste of the nostalgic "Original Spam Luncheon Meat" recipe (from Hormel Foods, the current and original producer of Spam) and the "Toasted Spam & Cheese Sandwich" recipe. Both bring back memories of growing up in Nebraska in the 1940s. New to me but especially tasty and satisfying was the "Spam & Georgia Peach Bake" from, of course, Georgia.
There's even a capsule history of Spam, with a timeline, tracing for us who are old enough to remember Spam's cozy, comfort-food marriage to Wonderbread and Victory Gardens of World War II.
At this price I plan to buy several to give as gifts for Christmas - or before. It's a little piece of Americana rolled into a perfect, stocking-stuffer sized book.

I remember eating SPAM as a kid in Minnesota and it was usually mixed with eggs for breakfast or baked as a loaf. This new cookbook has all the traditional recipes plus many surprises such as SPAM Risotto and SPAM potstickers. My favorite is the SPAM and Salmon Loaf; its very tasty,has a festive holiday look with the peppers and, like the best comfort food, equally good re-heated. (But when nobody is around, I still like SPAM fried crispy and put between a couple pieces of white bread.) My friends will be surprised how SPAM can be used in their favorite recipes. And the book is shaped like the can. What a good idea.
