Book Description

20 Jun 2012
In this beautiful volume, a love letter to American food, Martha Stewart, who has so significantly influenced the American table, collects her most favorite national dishes, as well as the stories and traditions behind them. These are recipes that will delight you with nostalgia, inspire you, and teach you about our nation by way of its regions and their distinctive flavors. Above all, these are time-honored recipes that you will turn to again and again.

Organized geographically, the 200 recipes in Martha’s American Food include main dishes such as comforting Chicken Pot Pies, easy Grilled Fish Tacos, irresistible Barbecued Ribs, and hearty New England Clam Chowder. Here, too, are thoroughly modern starters, sides, and one-dish meals that harness the bounty of each region’s seasons and landscape: Hot Crab Dip, Tequila-Grilled Shrimp, Indiana Succotash, Chicken and Andouille Gumbo, Grilled Bacon-Wrapped Whitefish, and Whole-Wheat Spaghetti with Meyer Lemon, Arugula, and Pistachios. And you will want to leave room for dessert, with dozens of treats such as Chocolate-Bourbon Pecan Pie, New York Cheesecake, and Peach and Berry Cobbler.

Through sidebars about the flavors that define each region and stunning photography that brings the foods—and the places with which we identify them—to life, Martha celebrates the unique character of each part of the country. With all the dishes that inspire pride in our national cuisine, Martha’s American Food gathers, in one place, the recipes that will surely please your family and friends for generations to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very thorough 26 Jun 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars good buy 14 July 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.
