With a background in journalism and library science, Becky Libourel Diamond has had a varied career combining writing and research. Ms. Diamond's second book, The Thousand Dollar Dinner, tells the unique story of a 19th century culinary challenge between Philadelphia restaurateur James Parkinson and the Delmonico family of NY.

Chicken Croquettes

Picture Croquettes are little nuggets of ground meat or vegetables bound with eggs or a sauce, coated in breadcrumbs and then fried until golden and crunchy on the outside. The name comes from their deliciously crispy exterior; croquette is derived from the French verb croquer, or crunch. These flavorful delicacies were very popular in the 19th century, found throughout cookbooks from the era.
