James Beard’s All-American Eats: Recipes and Stories from Our Best-Loved Local Restaurants
A recipe- and story-packed cookbook from the James Beard Foundation.
This cookbook brings together eighty of their recipes so the home cook can re-create such regional favorites as St. Elmo’s Crab Mac and Cheese, The Shed’s Red Chile Enchiladas, Aunt Carrie’s Indian Pudding, Bowens Island Frogmore Stew, Totonno’s White Clam Pizza, Camp Washington’s Cincinnati Chili, and Gott’s Roadside Cheeseburger (with the secret sauce!).
Just as good as the food are the inspiring tales behind these mom-and-pops, told in oral histories: how an immigrant grandfather turned an heirloom dish into a booming business, or how a vengeful lover’s recipe for spicy fried chicken earned a cult following. James Beard’s All-American Eats is a tribute to the local treasures and unsung heroes of true American cooking, as well as a collection of recipes for craveable classic dishes.
