Summary

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

Daniel Boone. In a league of its own, no other cookware can come anywhere close to giving you chicken so crisp you’ll never think nuggets again or a pot roast so fall-apart tender that no matter how you dice it, you won’t be needing to slice it. Or a Dutch baby so perfectly stand-up crisp around the edges yet silky soft in the middle, the lyrics to ‘Cry Like a Baby’ get stuck in your head.”—MaryJane Butters, from the Author’s Note
