Yankee Magazine's Church Suppers & Potluck Dinners Cookbook by Andrea Chesman
This great cookbook is in lightly read and used condition with minimal wear to the dust jacket and covers. INSIDE the pages are at least 99% free of any marks, stains or writing.
The homespun fare served at New England's traditional pancake breakfasts, community cookouts and church potlucks is the ethnic cuisine of Yankee territory. The editors here have canvased such organizations as church groups and historical societies to come up with over 250 local New England recipes for chowders, main dishes, sides and desserts. Most are inexpensive and simple to prepare for family suppers and large group gatherings. Many recipes, not especially low in fat, sodium or calories, rely on convenience foods to achieve their familiar tastes. Among the more distinctive regional fare are Surf and Barnyard Stew (with turkey sausage and shrimp), Fresh Tomato Pie (with a Bisquick crust) and Cranberry Pot Roast. Made-from-scratch recipes like those for Sweet Milk Pancakes, Root Beer Cake and Cranberry Surprise Pie capture the expected New England blend of simplicity and country goodness. Suggestions for hosting a potluck gathering, rules for "potluck politeness," some recipes for a crowd (Sunshine Salad made with lemon gelatin, canned pineapple and grated carrots to serve 75-100) and small-town gathering anecdotes fill out this culinary collection of regional Americana.
This cookbook contains a pleasing variety of recipes, from the simplest soups and breads to elegant entrees and desserts. A collection of family and hometown favorites from the New England area, it is sure to bring fresh ideas into the kitchens of its readers. Many of the recipes are suited to certain seasons, including a chapter of hearty stews and chowders that will bring the warm fuzzies to the coldest winter day. For those who garden or love fresh produce, the Vegetables and Side Dishes chapter is filled with unique ways to enjoy the produce all summer. Having sampled many of the recipes, I have tasted elegance from the Herbed Cheese Spread all the way to the Chocolate Cheesecake! Many of the recipes are designed to be time savers for the busy family and some can be made the day before serving. The fact that most of them can be made from ingredients that are already in stock is an extra bonus for cooks on the go. There is also a handy section on Recipes to Feed a Crowd that can stretch your offerings into servings for 20 - 100. Whether you are hoping for a new twist on an old classic, or something to impress the neighbors at your own potluck, this is a must read for cooks and food lovers alike. Complete with helpful hints and a few vignettes for your reading pleasure, the recipes offered within will have even your finicky eaters asking for seconds.
