When colonists arrived in America, their knowledge of cooking sometimes had little in common with available ingredients. Eventually they adapted recipes from the old country for use with native foods and cooking methods. The resulting infusion nourished an enthusiasm for cookbooks, as cooks from all walks of life recorded and exchanged old and new recipes. This book serves up the American cookbook as a tasty sampler of history, geography and culture, revealing the influence of political events (e.g. wartime rationing), social movements (temperance), and technological change (new packaging and cooking methods). Skimming antiquity, the author whisks us through history to the first American cookbook, published by Amelia Simmons in 1796. Next she examines the cookbook revolution of the 1800s that was sparked by vigilant interest in household management and fueled by professionals and cooking schools. She heralds the charity and community cookbook, which has roots in the Civil War and thrives today. Regional and ethnic cookbooks merit discussion in their own chapter, which is followed by consideration of themes, product promotion, special collections and unusual formats. Cookbook aficionados will find familiar titles in the final chapter, Most Influential Cookbooks of the Twentieth Century. Multiple bibliographies list notable American cookbooks, product cookbooks and booklets, alternative format cookbooks, and culinary books (books about food), as well as the authors research sources. A selected list of libraries and archives with significant cookbook and culinary collections is included, and a unique appendix reprints selected pie recipes from American cookbooks published from 1796 through 2000, demonstrating an evolving recipe format. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.

This is an excellent reference and guide to historical American cookbooks. It describes the most important American cookbooks starting with colonial publications of English cookbooks and the first uniquely American cookbook by Amelia Simmons The First American Cookbook: A Facsimile of "American Cookery," 1796. It continues through early ethnic and charity cookbooks published in the mid 20th century. Overall this book is a well written and easy to read guide to the most important historical American cookbooks. Promotional blurbs for historical cookbooks commonly claim that a book is "the first" in some category with multiple claims to the same first. This book will help you to identify the real firsts and most influential cookbooks and trends that those cookbooks represent. For example which cookbook was really the first cookbook written (and published) by a black man and the first by a black woman.

An additional key piece of information in this book is the existence of the "Feeding America" digital library of historic American cookbooks maintained by Michigan State University. Historical cookbooks are of course public domain works. The Feeding America project is a wonderful resource with introductory descriptions, digital transcripts and page images of numerous historic cookbooks that you can view online.
