The first caveat I must give this review is that I did not pay full price for this item. I had a £10 credit on my Amazon account to use and so only paid about £9 for this book. That said, if you have the money to spend, the £20 price tag is still worth it in my opinion.

American food is having a huge moment here in the UK right now with the ascension of the burger and hot dog culture sweeping the London food scene. That said, with most of my experience limited to the Northeast coast, I was interested in learning more about regional cuisine of the country. While definitely a recipe book, Martha's instruction is still so thorough.

At over 400 pages, there are hundred of recipes, each divided by region. The book actually starts with an 'All-american' intro which is also great to access some classics immediately. Each recipe then has a column blurb from Martha explaining a history of the dish.

Of course, being by an American author without much of a British audience, the book has not been converted into British metrics. It bothers me little, having a set of measuring cups gets you 75% of the way there. Ingredients are also not complicated, meaning that most of them could be bought easily over here.

I honestly cannot fault this book. It's comprehensive, with almost one photo per recipe, and great quality throughout. I can also recommend 'A Taste of America' for a cheaper alternative although I would say this has more readable quality, the former being more instructional.

I am not American, so I bought this book only because of curiosity. After I read it, it turned out to be the best cook book what I read so far. The meals are well described, the recipes are easy to undertand. I can buy all the ingredients, even abroad. The pictures are beautiful and the foods are really delicious. I use this cookbook every week.

Living in Belgium, but loving America, I was searching for a basic cookbook with all the traditionale recipies that I ate on vacations through the US.
This book is the perfect answer!!! It contains lots of recipies of the most traditional dishes.
All the recipies are sorted by region. And each region contains recipies of drinks, dishes, sidedishes and desserts.

It is also a lovely book to read: it's nice, the pictures are beautiful and you just wanna get started in the kitchen.

An absolute must for the classic American recipies.
