“How Iowa Cooks
is a 266-page book full of the best of the heartland. . . . The breadbasket of America is amply represented in the more than 600 recipes, from all over the state.”
—St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Sorting through the great variety of cookbooks on the market today, so many of which feature exotic dishes from strange, obscure parts of the world, it is comforting to find one devoted to authentic American cooking. Now, from the nation’s breadbasket comes a collection of recipes full of heartland goodness.
Originally published by the Tipton (Iowa) Woman’s Club, How Iowa Cooks contains more than 600 recipes for delicious and economical dishes. The state’s diverse heritage of French, Indian, Dutch, Scottish, German, and Scandinavian influences is reflected in the wide array of foods. Both traditional favorites and innovative creations are included, from appetizers like Crabmeat Dip to the hearty Huntington Chicken or Deviled Pork Chops, to such splendid desserts as Molasses Sugar Cookies and of course Apple Pie. Now in its ninth printing (with 39,000 copies in print), this book features an entire chapter of 37 for Iowa’s famous corn.
