"Best of" lists are a staple of magazines and websites. Leave it to Clark Wolf, one of the canniest food marketers around, to figure a way to turn one into a book. And a fascinating book at that... a collection that will inspire much good cooking and probably even more spirited discussion. What Wolf and company have done is compile a canon of American cookbookery. It's a handsome effort....Any amateur user of cookbooks will find much to love in these pages." ~Los Angeles Times
"If anyone wants to get a thorough sense of the development of American gastronomy over the last 150 years, this is a book that will do it delectably...The repros of covers and pages from these cookbooks are a delight and will be a nostalgic trip for so many who bought these books when they were first published. It's a beautifully put-together book, as is Rizzoli's style." ~Esquire
