Adventures in Good Cooking
Publisher: The University Press of Kentucky
An all-American classic: “For the first time in decades, we can revisit the best recipes from some of the best restaurants of the ’40s and ’50s.” —St. Louis Post-Dispatch Adventures in Good Cooking was a culinary landmark. Duncan Hines had left his native Kentucky and crisscrossed the country as a traveling salesman, becoming a national tastemaker in the process by reporting on the many restaurants he visited. Eventually, his recommendations became so popular that he published his first cookbook at age fifty-nine. This bestselling collection featured recipes contributed by select restaurants from coast to coast as well as crowd-pleasing family favorites, and it helped to raise the standard for home cooking in America. Filled with succulent treats, from the Waldorf-Astoria’s Chicken Fricassee to the Oeufs a la Russe served at Antoine’s Restaurant in New Orleans to Mrs. Hines’s own Christmas Nut Cake, this book includes classic recipes from top chefs and home cooks alike. Includes a new introduction by Hines biographer Louis Hatchett and a valuable guide to the art of carving
