Synopsis: Joan Nathan is the author of ten cookbooks and a regular contributor to The New York Times and Tablet Magazine. She is the author of the much-acclaimed Jewish Cooking in America, which in 1994 won both the James Beard Award and the IACP/Julia Child Cookbook of the Year Award; as well as The New American Cooking which also won the James Beard and IACP Awards as best American cookbook published in 2005. In 2004 Ms. Nathan was the Guest Curator of Food Culture USA, the 2005 Smithsonian Folklife Festival on the National Mall in Washington, DC, based on the research for her book, The New American Cooking. In AN AMERICAN FOLKLIFE COOKBOOK, food folklorist Ms. Nathan tells the story of American food through its people, giving slices of life as she sees it in kitchens throughout the country. Nathan's interviews are valuable social history and good reading, and the recipes are temptingly delicious. In her culinary journey, she presents 200 of the best of the many recipes she sampled - from the Paul Bunyan pancakes she ate in the cookhouse of the last live-in logging camp in America, to the Sally Lunn and buttermilk biscuits which 296-yr.-old Mattie Ball Fletcher still makes in her tiny kitchen in Little Washington, Virginia, to crabcakes and homemade fig cake in Frances Kitching's renowned boardinghouse on Smith Island in Chesapeake Bay. She includes recipes for the sauerkraut and pumpkin pies of Pennsylvania farmers, 7 different fish dishes served on Christmas Eve in the Italian community in Providence, Rhode Island, and 7 different cookies served on Christmas in Barbara Berg Swenson's Norwegian Minnesota home. Nathan travels to a Texas millionaire's 4th of July barbecue and lunches with Chicago firemen.
