Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0679435638, Hardcover)Orchards of blushing peaches await harvest in Georgia; swaying golden wheat blankets the Kansas plains; herds of grazing cattle cross Wyoming and Montana; countless chilies dry in the hot New Mexico sun; Alaskan rivers sparkle with salmon -- America is truly abundant. Add to this bounty new foods and cuisines introduced by a steady stream of immigrants, and it is no wonder American cooking is continually so exciting. Gourmet's America is a celebration of all the foods, both traditional and newly found, that we enjoy today.
This beautiful cookbook, with over 40 full-color photographs, explores eight distinctive regional cuisines -- New England, the Mid-Atlantic, the South, the Heartland, the Mountain States, the Southwest, the Northwest and Alaska, and California and Hawaii -- and offers a special menu and additional outstanding dishes for each area. You'll find over 250 recipes in all, including some of Gourmet magazine's classic favorites, as well as over 100 brand-new recipes that highlight America's harvests. Searching for a casual summertime menu? Turn to A Southern Country Supper, which offers marvelous make-ahead salads filled with fresh herbs and produce. Need a quick, tasty hors d'oeuvre? The Southwestern Spiced Red Pepper Dip is just one possibility, or look in the index for other recipes that can be made in 45 minutes or less.
Today, grocery stores and farmers markets are brimming with options. Let Gourmet's America show you how to cook with all the wonderful ingredients this great land has to offer.
