Ask not what your country can do for you but what your leaders can cook for you. (Mark Russell, political satirist, columnist and author)

You can eat your way across America and never leave the kitchen. (Judge William H. Webster and Lynda Webster, former Director of CIA and FBI and his wife)

...melds her love of food politics and a fine cause to help our troops to make interesting reading and tasteful eating. (Carr Purser Jr., Food and Finance Expert)

The blessings and bounty of America are highlighted within Capitol Hill Cooks. Food enthusiasts will revel in helping our troops. (Alex and Jean Trebek, host of Jeopardy! and his wife)

Here's to good manners and delicious food, all the more enjoyable when shared with good friends! (Peggy Post, etiquette expert and author)

Linda Bauer's cookbook series are national treasures. Her exquisite selection of recipes and presentation and her charitable donations of the proceeds are unique contributions to American culture and giving. This book features the recipes of our most prominent politicians and directs the proceeds to a great cause, the Massachusetts-based Homes for our Troops.
