In this beautiful volume, a 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
