In a journey stuffed with delicious history and delightful anecdotes, Evan Jones traces our culinary heritage from colonial times into the present. As he examines such diverse American kitchen achievements as sould food, Cajun cooking, Yankee-Hill country fare, and festive Southern dinners, he proves that there is a delcious and uniquely American style of cooking. American Food is the perfect kitchen companion for the patriotic gourmet.
