I great book with wonderful insight into the regional cooking. Every recipe has a feel of authenticity. I love that the authors give info on variations by regions. Recipe layout is very user friendly.

I love this cookbook and would like to spend more time cooking out of it--the couple who author it are some of my favorites for regional American cooking, and the recipes are reliable
Love looking at this book. It's as much of a history book as it is a cookbook. The recipies are amazing too!
I love that this book gives multiple regional variations of some recipes. I'll be returning to this one regularly.
Authentic and simple recipes for those of us who love the spicy food of the southwest.
