Non so perchè ma credevo fosse diverso. Presenta i principali piatti americani suddividendoli per zone. Ogni sezione ha i suoi cocktail, piatti principali e dolci. Non ho ancora provato a riprodurre niente, quindi per ora mi baso sulle foto (molto belle) e sui procedimenti (spiegati bene). Vedremo la prova infallibilità!
all in all a great cook book for an overview on the american cuisine, most of the recipes are classic and verv reliable when in doubt. The chocolate chip cookis though..awfull, way too sweet (try Nestle Toll House). If having real perfectionism, a little research will help you to better recipes, also on Marthas own website. It still has a really pretty cover and will always inspire to cook american food!
I love martha stewart recipes! They always turn out well - she is my go to gal for all things cooking. However, I was extremely disappointed with this cookbook. The measurements are wrong! If you are an experienced cook, you can play with the recipes and get them correct eventually. I would not recommend this cookbook to anyone new to cooking because you have to attempt recipes multiple times to get them right. I made the red beans and rice recipe three times before it turned out correctly. Is anyone testing these recipes before publication??? Waste of money.
The book is beautiful and has much wonderful history in it. When Fettucini Alfredo wasn't on the menu at a favorite Italian restaurant where we were celebrating my daughter's birthday, it was fun for me to open the book --- which was along as a gift -- and share that it explains it's actually an American recipe. Even the somewhat snooty chef from Italy was charmed and offered to make a version of it for my granddaughters -- so long as we knew it wasn't really Italian. :-)
But my daughter and her husband, a rabbi, don't eat pork or seafood because of Jewish dietary laws. They do, however, mix milk and meat (so they certainly don't keep kosher). I think this was the cookbook that disappointed her, because she discovered that she can't use a lot of the recipes. But I know that was her reaction to the newest version of the Julia Child's French Cooking book, and I hope I'm not wrong in thinking this book shares that characteristic. Of course my daughter substitues other ingredients where she can, but . . . . Please don't take my uncertain word for it, but it you don't eat trafe, check the book's contents out before you buy.
I loved reading much of the history in it before I gave it away!
