Description
Originally published in 1975 and revised in 1981, Evan Jones' culinary classic features a 180-page history of American food, followed by more than 500 distinctive regional, traditional, and contemporary recipes. In a journey rife with delicious anecdotes, he traces our culinary heritage from the first encounters between Puritan settlers and Native Americans to the eclectic traditions that German, French, Italian, Greek, and Asian immigrants have brought to this country. Jones, who coauthored three cookbooks with his wife Judith Jones, examines soul food, Cajun cooking, Yankee–hill country fare, and elaborate Southern dinners to uncover a uniquely American style of cooking.

"An honest and singular book—as pleasant as a good conversation ... often amusing, always erudite. Evan Jones understands the currents of our national gastronomy as few others do."—M.F.K. Fisher
