In this 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.

Martha can do no wrong with her cookbooks! This is another gem. Recommend highly.

While I was a bit disappointed that she didn't have a specific focus on the Pacific NW, it was a good book. Not one of Martha's best, though, IMO.

The photographs were nice.
