I hear America cooking by Betty Harper Fussell( Book )

5 editions published between 1986 and 1997 in English and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Searching for high-quality regional American food, Fussell focuses on six areas that have maintained their heritage of good native cooking and eating. She visited the desert Southwest, the Louisiana Delta, the tidewater Carolina, New England, the Great Lakes region, and the Pacific Northwest Coast to assess their claims to culinary distinction. From roadhouse to restaurant and from cottage to mansion, she investigated what was cooking in the kitchen, and how the raw materials make their way there through the regional supply line. In each of these regions the author found typical communal rites and tribal dishes, dishes that are appropriate to the ecology and have distinct flavors. She also includes numerous recipes.

The mushroom feast by Jane Grigson( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Mushroom Feast is an indispensable classic for all those who love mushrooms. It is a fine, timeless, literary cookbook. Truffles ... ceps ... morels, they all conjure visions of one of the most intriguing and subtle of all gastronomic treats. Yet amateur cooks can be mystified by how best to prepare them, while epicures hunger for new ways to expand their repertoires. With more than 250 recipes, Jane Grigson describes the preparation of the best fresh and preserved mushrooms. Besides the traditional use of mushrooms to enhance meat and vegetable dishes, edible fungi are made into pate, powdered, pureed into mushroom ketchup, baked into a flan (an Alice B. Toklas specialty), baked as a cake and used in many other dishes - from the simple to the highly sophisticated - for soups, sauces, stuffings, main courses, too intriguing to resist. Included are helpful tips for selecting and preserving the best edible mushrooms (both wild and cultivated), the folklore behind the recipes, a brief history of mushroom cultivation, guides to distinguish edible from poisonous fungi for those who venture to pick their own, and charming line drawings of the twenty-one most common species"--Publisher's description

In this witty and candid autobiographical mock epic, Fussell survives a motherless household during the Great Depression, gets married to the well-known writer and war historian Paul Fussell after World War II, goes through a divorce, and finally escapes to New York City in her mid-fifties, batterie de cuisine intact. My Kitchen Wars is a revelation of the author's lifelong love affair with food--cooking it, eating it, and sharing it--no matter where or with whom she finds herself. From Princeton to Heidelberg and from London to Provence, Fussell ladles out food, sex, and travel with her wooden spoon, welcoming all who come to the table
