Item Description...
American cuisine has absorbed the best and brightest of every culture world wide, and it all began in the early cookbooks of the eighteenth century. Martha Washington, for instance, our First Lady, was America's earliest celebrity chef. Her recipe collection was a beloved family heirloom, lent out to friends one "receipt" at a time. Others followed. In the South, Thomas Jefferson's cousin, Mary Randolph, wrote a bestselling cookbook many of whose recipes are still used today. In upstate New York, an enterprising young woman called Amelia Simmons set out the traditional American fare that graced Thanksgiving tables for generations. Her cookbook was said to be the "Second Declaration of Independence, written on a kitchen table." And culinary celebrities kept coming, inspired by the bounty of America's fields and streams and gardens and enriched by the many different ethnic traditions at work over the hearth fires. Its all here in OUR FOUNDING FOODS: pioneer campfire cookery, the first Mexican American cuisine, the liberated voices of former slave chefs and the Grand Dames of the early cooking schools. Author Jane Tennant presents over 200 recipes drawn from the best early American cookbooks, all written during the first two hundred years of our culinary history. Each recipe is referenced to its original source with biographical notes on the chef who published it. The bibliography to this collection extends back to 1615, when Gervase Markham, a contemporary of William Shakespeare, raved about "manchet bread." From that moment forward the text leaps across America's culinary history culminating with the Fannie Farmer Cooking School in Boston in 1903. Along the way, you'll also learn what George Washington offered his guests at Mount Vernon; the favorite ice cream of Thomas Jefferson; how the cooks during the Civil War managed without flour; and the recipe for the illicit candy found in the dorms of Vassar College. Rich with facinating historical information and stories of American ingenuity in the kitchen, this tour de force is a unique resource for cooks and historians alike.

A vintage collection of select recipes from eighteenth-century American cookbooks  Aug 11, 2008
Our Founding Foods: Classics From the First Century of American Celebrity Cookbooks is a vintage collection of select recipes from eighteenth-century American cookbooks, from recipes collected by Martha Washington (America's first celebrity chef) to choices from Thomas Jefferson's cousin Mary Randolph (many of whose recipes are still used today) to the Thanksgiving traditional fare propagated by enterprising New Yorker Amelia Simmons. Collecting over 200 recipes out of the very best cookbooks created during the first 100 years of America's culinary history, Our Founding Foods is a much-deserved addition to American cookbook shelves.
