America's Best Lost Recipes
Praise for America's Best Lost Recipes:
"Part cookbook, part delicious journey into American kitchen history. A deliciously fun book to read and cook from."
"This book should be the first course of every cooking school in America."
-The Tampa Tribune
Thousands of home cooks from around the country participated in the Cook's Country Heirloom Recipe Preservation Project - we received more than 2,800 recipes in less than four months. After more than a year of testing and tasting we are proud to publish America's Best Lost Recipes, featuring 121 of the best old-fashioned recipes that deserve a place in today's modern kitchens.
Featured recipes include Vidalia Onion Pie, Aunt Ellen's Upside Down Lemon Pudding Pie, Chicken Corn Rivel Soup, Cold Oven Pound Cake, and more.
America's Best Lost Recipes is sure to become a cherished part of your cookbook collection.
This collection features food you will want to make for friends and family while test kitchen notes tell the story of our recipe testing -- what worked, what didn't and what you need to know to be successful in the kitchen. And each recipe features an introduction placing recipes in historical context and sharing excerpts from the personal stories behind them. A slice of Americana, America's Best Lost Recipes aims to preserve the best our culinary heritage has to offer.
Bound in a kitchen-friendly lay-flat binding, it also has a handy recipe card pocket bound right in the book to keep your family's favorites from ever getting lost again (and also happens to be perfectly sized to fit the recipe cards from every issue of Cook's Country magazine). And we've even included 8 blank recipe cards to help jump-start your collection and make sure your family heirloom recipes are never lost again.
America's Best Lost Recipes is packed with full color photos, notes from the test kitchen staff, troubleshooting tips, and step-by-step illustrations.
