Summary

Robb Forman Dew first began collecting her Thanksgiving recipes at the request of a cousin who hadn't cooked before.  In A Southern Thanksgiving, she gathers them into a cookbook--both practical and literary--for an easy-to-prepare, sumptuous Southern feast.  
 
In recreating the ambiance of her remembered Thanksgivings in the South, she found that planning ahead is crucial. A Southern Thanksgiving includes recipes for such delicious dishes as Yams Mousseline, Roast Turkey with Gravy and Cornbread Dressing, and Lalie's Pumpkin Chiffon Pie with Gingersnap Crust--many of which can be made weeks ahead and frozen. 
 
Dew offers such an effortless strategy for preparing the Thanksgiving meal that both you and your guests will have the time to enjoy the day together. Hers is a book to be treasured, savored, and used by first-time cooks and experienced hosts alike.

    In this entertaining history, Gregory McNamee explores the many ethnic and cultural traditions that have contributed to the food of the Southwest. He traces the origins of the cuisine to the arrival of humans in the Americas, the work of the earliest farmers of Mesoamerica, and the most ancient trade networks joining peoples of the coast, plains, and mountains. From the ancient chile pepper and agave to the comparatively recent fare of sushi and Frito pie, this complex culinary journey involves many players over space and time. Born of scarcity, migration, and climate change, these foods are now fully at home in the Southwest of today—and with the “southwesternization” of the American palate at large, they are found across the globe. McNamee extends that story across thousands of years to the present, even imagining what the southwestern menu will look like in the near future.
