Reviews

"Cookbooks tell us who we are and aspire to be, and in this useful, deeply researched and witty guide to American cooking instruction, Megan Elias illuminates little-known facts and limns the evolution of our tastes--from Amelia Simmons's American Cookery of 1796 to the reality TV chefs and food bloggers of today."--Alex Prud'homme, author of The French Chef in America: Julia Child's Second Act
