Synopsis: Truly a collector's piece, American Gastronomy is for anyone who wants to prepare and serve dishes that have been especially adapted for today from authentic old recipes and learn more about the history and lore of American cookery. To prepare American Gastronomy, Louis Szathmary, chef, restaurateur, and author, has researched American foods, methods, eating habits, famous chefs, cooks, restaurants, and dishes. The result is the first book to define and explain American Cookery. It is illustrated with over 90 etchings, woodcuts, prints, and photographs that together offer a fascinating look into the kitchens and dining rooms of yesteryear. Also included are reproductions of old advertisements of American food products and bills of fare from famous restaurants. The recipes have been judiciously selected and adapted from cookbooks the titles which are known only by octogenarians and American History buffs. All recipes have been adapted by Chef Louis, who has carefully and ingeniously preserved the historical character of each one. A potpourri of good things to eat, read, smile over, and look at-the period illustrations are superb- American Gastronomy will prove enjoyable not just to the cook. Guests, too will enjoy perusing American Gastronomy, reading about foods.
