All the dishes are very simple and do-able--from Philly Cheesesteaks to Marionberry cobbler. And while Batali uses recipes passed down through the generations, he also shares hints on what he would add to the recipe to take the flavor up a notch.

I love cookbooks and food. I love to cook - but I don't watch cooking shows. I'm pretty sure Mario Batali is a celebrity chef. I just liked the name of the cookbook. And it was an ebook borrow.
It has some great recipes for all the classic regional favorites. Some of my favorites were the seafood...

Mario Batali is one of the most, if not THE most, beloved celebrity chefs. I had the great fortune of attending a lunch composed of dishes from this book, with him in attendance. The book is a compendium of recipes from around the country - each state being represented. Who knew there were so man...

Best new cookbook I've read in years. This guy writes just as well as he cooks and the accompanying very short descriptions/stories are as good as the recipes.

As always Mario Batali knows exactly what he's doing.
This book seriously covers every American classic I could think of, complete with little snippets of their origin stories. Awesome.

It's been common for some time for a cookbook writer to pursue recipes collected from across the United States. In my opinion the best recipes and stories came from the late Clementine Paddleford and securing a copy of her "How America Eats" will cost you well over $100.00 for an early edition. T...

I received my copy as a Goodreads Giveaway in return for an honest review.
The title says it all - Big American Cookbook. This is a very large and heavy book, but it is so beautiful that it is appropriate as a coffee table book. I know many people go straight to the recipes and never read the forw...
