Author Jeanne Jacobs set out to write a family cookbook. Instead, readers are being treated to a view of American history rarely seen. From her earliest American ancestors to the present, the author offers a rich. . .and delicious. . ..view of how our country began and the people who contributed to its greatness. Her story begins when Benjamin Price, known as The Immigrant, arrived in the 1600s and eventually founded East Hampton, and Edward Dorsey, who became a plantation owner in the Baltimore area, joined forces to begin a family history that parallels the very history of our nation. From the Revolutionary War to the battle of Gettysburg, from pioneer travels across the American plains to Kansas to present day, we follow the growth of the remarkable Price family. But there is more than a family history here; there is also a culinary history. From the original founders of the Massachusetts Bay Company to meals prepared during war and peace, hardship and bounty, Jacobs shares her family recipes. The journey through these recipes tells us as much about the eating habits of a young country as it does about its growth and expansion. American Potpourri is a fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable view into a family, a country, and the delicious meals served over a period of four hundred years.
