Description
Representing the best from food competitions in state fairs across the country, here are blue-ribbon and first-prize recipes from Alabama (Mary's Sticky Biscuits); Wyoming (Coffee Cheesecake Pie with Coffee-Caramel Sauce); Iowa (Cool Fruit Strata); California (Salsa Jam), and every other state in the union, set in a small coffee-table book with anecdotes and period graphics from various fairs.

"The most interesting part of this slender volume is ... the illustrations, anecdotes and ephemera that come out of the 150-year history of the state fair. Tales of prize-winning livestock and oversized vegetables abound; the authors deem fairs 'a rare opportunity ... to be recognized for an astounding array of superlatives: the perfect pie ... the sweetest fudge, the farthest-spit watermelon seed.' The superlative recipes selected for this volume, one from each state [include] ... Marjorie Johnson's Sour Cream Streusel Coffee Cake, winner at the Minnesota State Fair (perhaps because it contains two sticks of butter and three kinds of sugar). Don's Peach Pie, out of Ohio, is another winning dessert perfect for summertime. Surprisingly, Maine's Common Ground County Fair produced a simple recipe for New York-Style Half-Sour Pickles that gives its Empire State forbearers a run for their money.... This whimsical volume is sure to please fairgoers, even if they never set foot in a kitchen."Publishers Weekly
