“This ode to down-home cooking is a colorful tapestry of our nation's culinary character. The ‘By the Bowl’ chapter alone represents a deliciously warm blanket of Americana.” —Howie Southworth, author of One Pan To Rule Them All and Kiss My Casserole
“My taste buds drool as I flip through The American Table’s easy-to-follow recipes for what author Larry Edwards aptly calls ‘the epitome of world culinary history’—comfort food we have all come ‘to love, cherish, and remember.’ I’m eager to prepare and savor my initial menu of choice: Sweet Potato Biscuits, Corn Chowder, Indian Pudding, Broccoli Salad, and Maple Bourbon Cake (with real! maple syrup). You, too, are welcome to taste.” —Willard Roth, author of Mennonite Men Can Cook, Too
