Review

Noted nutrition text author Karen Drummond teams with Joan D'Amico to help you eat and cook your way across the country. The journey begins in New England, travels down the coast to the Mid Atlantic and the South, traverses the Mid- and Southwest, crosses the Rockies and finishes on the Pacific Coast. Easy-to-follow historical facts, state foods and a recipe utilizing these foods provide a fun and different approach to learn about the United States. The solid introduction to the kitchen, including safety rules and how-tos on utilizing kitchen equipment are a bonus. Cooking just may become your family's next history project. A 2000 Parents' Choice® Recommended winner.
