John Hadamucin's "Down Home" is a wonderful celebration of everyday living by one America's most popular hosts and cookbook authors. Photographs by Randy O'Rourke. Published by Harmony Books, first edition 1993.
A year of Cooking Entertaining and Living Easy.
Divided by seasons, this sumptuously illustrated book features menus inspired by the first buds of spring, the lush heat of summer, crisp autumn days, and long winter nights. More than 150 glorious full-color photographs convey John's trademark approach to easy-going entertaining throughout the year. From casual get togethers, such as "Supper on the Lawn" and an "Afternoon Pie Social," to John's traditional "Farmhouse Thanksgiving Dinner" and a "Fancy Dinner for Friends," John demonstrates how the many pleasures of good food and good living are synonymous. And along the way, he shares recollections of a childhood life on his family's farm and reflects on the many pleasures of life in his new home, from gardening chores to having neighbors again.
Here are few of John's delicious recipes: Cider-Glazed Roasted Turkey with Sweet Potato and Apple Dressing, Creamed Early Peas with Green Onions, Tomato and Sage Fritters, Great Aunt Nina's Whiskey cake, and Mom's Pear Dumplings with Nutmeg cream.
