Here is a cookbook published in 1940 that includes recipes from each of the 48 states. The prologue page states ' ... whose indomitable grandmothers helped carve an American cuisine out of a wilderness of indigenous foods.' For years, the Browns, authors of this cookbook, collected regional American cooking lore and their accompanying recipes. As suggested, this is a wonderful set of 48 cookbooks rolled into one! Chocked full of 942 pages of recipes it has some of the most treasured, traditional and cultural recipes that could be found in one cookbook. Here's a sampling of what you'll find in this cookbook: Colorado offers 'Mountain Trout', Texas offers, 'Hot Tamales', and Utah offers, 'Fried Coot' and so much more!
The copyright page shows a copyright of MCMXL (1940) by Doubleday & Company, Inc. The previous owner had cut the inner flap of the dust jacket outlining the 48 states and the 'claim to fame' dish of each. Given it's age, this book is in excellent condition with only minimal issues. The cover corners and spine are bent. The colored pictures are clear and vibrant and pages show a tad bit of discoloration. The first page has a 1/4" tear.
If you're a collector of unusual cookbooks, this one is a must have!
