'The City Tavern Cookbook' by Walter Staib http://www.amazon.co.uk/City-Tavern-Coo ... B001RNPCG6
Absolute food Porn!
Whilst some recipes are decidedly American there's a lot of 'Old World' recipes showing the British and German influence on American Cuisine.
Recipes are easy to follow and there's a good deal of historical information as well as tips on serving authentically.
(The Amazon price is very reasonable at the mo as well!)
I can't read it without dribbling....
"When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle."
Edmund Burke(1729 – 1797)
Proof that being "Conservative" wasn't always a bad thing.....
