Baking in America is a wonderful retrospective of the history of baking in the country starting with the first American cookbook published in 1776, American Cookery. Author Greg Patent, presents a unique collection of recipes that have been forgotten over time, until now.
Perusing old cookbooks, journals, and handwritten diaries from libraries and private archives, he has recreated treasured recipes—both sweet and savory. Recipe sources include the works of influential writers such as Eliza Leslie, Fannie Farmer, as well as, original Parker House Rolls and some past contest winners such as the Chocolate and Gold Ribbon Cake (a Pillsbury Bake-Off prize winner).
