More than just typical burger-joint fare or sloppy, grease-soaked pizzas, American recipes are as varied and full of personality as our citizens. In Coast to Coast Cookery, editor Marian Tracy showcases a diverse collection of regional American recipes. From Indiana Steamed Persimmon Pudding to Hawaiian Curry, Ohio Maple Dumplings, and Pennsylvanian Fishhouse Punch (famously used in toasts to George Washington's memory), these midcentury recipes marry the many different cultural backgrounds that compose America. Regular staples such as apple pie and casseroles make an appearance alongside more exotic finds such as Cannibal Appetizers from Illinois or Watermelon Rind Pickle from Georgia. Older recipes like Florida Roast Opossum or Pennsylvania Snapper Stew are intermingled with more recent ones, and stories such as how hush puppies earned their names or what kind of woman inspired the "Anna, damn her" bread are interspersed throughout the collection. A mouth-watering foray into the world of American culinary flair, Coast to Coast Cookery delivers unique recipes from more than 40 American states and regions.
