Many North American plants have characteristics that are especially promising for creating varieties needed to expand food production, and there are excellent prospects of generating new economically competitive crops from these natives. The inadequacy of current crops to meet the food demands of the world’s huge, growing population makes the potential of indigenous North American food plants even more significant. These plants can also generate crops that are more compatible with the ecology of the world, and many also have inherent health benefits. Presenting detailed scholarship, a thoroughly accessible style, and numerous entertaining anecdotes, North American Cornucopia: Top 100 Indigenous Food Plants is a full-color book dedicated to the most important 100 native food plants of North America north of Mexico that have achieved commercial success or have substantial market potential. The introductory chapter reviews the historical development of North American indigenous crops and factors bearing on their future economic success. The rest of the book consists of 100 chapters, each dedicated to a particular crop. The book employs a user-friendly chapter format that presents the material in sections offering in-depth coverage of each plant. The first section of each chapter provides information on the scientific and English names of the plants, followed by a section on the geography and ecology of the wild forms, accompanied by a map showing the North American distribution. A section entitled "Plant Portrait" comprises a basic description of the plant, its history, and its economic and social importance. This is followed by "Culinary Portrait," concerned with food uses and culinary vocabulary. The chapters then provide an analysis of the economic future of each crop, discuss notable and interesting scientific or technological observations and accomplishments, and present extensive references.

From baked beans to apple cider, from clam chowder to pumpkin pie, Keith Stavely and Kathleen Fitzgerald's culinary history reveals the complex and colorful origins of New England foods and cookery. Featuring hosts of stories and recipes derived from generations of New Englanders of diverse backgrounds, America's Founding Food chronicles the region's cuisine, from the English settlers' first encounter with Indian corn in the early seventeenth century to the nostalgic marketing of New England dishes in the first half of the twentieth century. Focusing on the traditional foods of the region--including beans, pumpkins, seafood, meats, baked goods, and beverages such as cider and rum--the authors show how New Englanders procured, preserved, and prepared their sustaining dishes. Placing the New England culinary experience in the broader context of British and American history and culture, Stavely and Fitzgerald demonstrate the importance of New England's foods to the formation of American identity, while dispelling some of the myths arising from patriotic sentiment. At once a sharp assessment and a savory recollection, America's Founding Food sets out the rich story of the American dinner table and provides a new way to appreciate American history.

"I am enjoying it immensely, and it is one of those books that makes one want to try things out--like the puff pastry on page 233...I love the way the book is set up...that the recipes have been left as written...my congratulations for a job well done."--Julia Child FROM REVIEWS OF THE ORIGINAL EDITION: "With a truly handsome format featuring many engravings, this is a fine staple for culinary historians and practitioners--and an exemplary gift."--"Kirkus Reviews " "This is an exploration, curious and fascinated, by a couple of nosers-around in the vast, uncollected library of five centuries of the English printed word on food, from 1390 to 1899. In the finished product the Hermans preserve not only the recipes but their original language, and a great deal of the lore they dug up in the course of their seeking."--"Village Voice " "This handsome book is a delight to the culinary historian and the adventurous cook."--"Library Journal " "The Cornucopia. . .is pure entertainment. . . such general easy jolliness is hard to find and much to be savored. . .. I can find nothing but plain enjoyment in the book."--M. F. K. Fisher, "The New Yorker " "Recipes, lore and anecdotes from the old world and the new, dating from 1390 to 1899, make up the subject matter, and the handsome layout and [reproductions of ] attractive old engravings of foods and utensils make it inviting to dip into."--"New York Magazine" "This fine smorgasbord will whet the appetite for the original books from which it was assembled."--"New York Times"
