Description
Ruby's Juke Joint Americana Cookbook offers readers of every cooking skill level something they can sink their teeth into: . Tales of Americana dishes and the ingredients that make them great. A smorgasbord of enticing recipes from appetizers and drinks to special occasion dinners and sweet farewells. A full-length CD with a great mix of lively Americana tunes, including songs by Two Hoots and a Holler, Marti Brom, The Modern Don Juans, Teri Joyce, Elizabeth McQueen, Rockin' Lloyd Tripp, and Grammy-nominated Ruby Dee and the Snakehandlers' latest, Home Cookin', just for this cookbook/CD comboWhat Ruby calls Americana cuisine comes from a mish-mash of all different types of cultures and kitchens, brought together in one place or another all around this vast country of ours, and given one simple way to describe the flavors you'll find there-Americana. From northeastern chowders to southwestern chiles, from northwest smoked salmon to southern bar-b-que, the dishes and ingredients that go into them are all familiar, all-American, and certainly feel like home.
