American Retro - The 1950s and '60s were the halcyon
days of the American Dream. Life was easier, safer and
altogether more innocent. Nowhere was this more apparent
than the freeway, that symbol of the growth of American
prosperity. American Retro is a wonderfully evocative
collection of gift books celebrating the motels, diners,
cars and Main Streets that were the landmarks of these
great highways. Together with a selection of witty and
nostalgic quotes, these charming books will be a perfect
gift for those who remember.
Bowling Alleys, and Trailer Parks: Chasing the American
Dream in the Postwar Consumer Culture - The accessible
topics and interesting prose support strong arguments
concerning how marketing these institutions to newly affluent
blue-collar workers shaped images of ideal middle-class
suburban families in ways that excluded people of color.
Unfortunately, the four chapters do not hold together
particularly well. The separate chapters on diners, bowling
alleys, and trailer parks are more detailed than necessary,
while the concluding chapter covers new economic territory
without weaving in the strands of earlier chapters.
The Best of Casual American Cooking - The photography
is gorgeous, and guaranteed to make your mouth-water and
head you toward the kitchen. The recipes do require some
actual kitchen time and preparation, but as most mothers

shortcuts, although these recipes are stove-top and oven
in design. This book can also serve as a coffee-table
book because these perennially popular American dishes,
so artfully photographed, constitute an art form.

City Diner Cookbook - Remember when attaching "California"
to food actually meant a thing or two? Fog City Diner
Cookbook is something of a time capsule in that regard.
You have seen similar-looking food on menus in your town.
But that's now, and this book (and the food before it)
came out back when it was news. What's interesting to
note, however, is that Pawlcyn bases her dishes on sound
culinary principles. She isn't throwing oddball ingredients
together to grab attention or to appear to be clever,
she's combining flavors and textures and cultural heritage
to achieve specific effects, with new and powerful results.
In other words, she shows restraint on the one hand, and
knows what she's doing on the other.

The Coast-to-Coast Guide to 500 of the Best Barbeque Joints,
Lobster Shacks, Ice Cream Parlors, Highway Diners, and
Much More - Roadfood celebrates venues most travelers
would never venture near, let alone enter--like Lusco's
in Greenwood, Miss. ("one of the weirdest, and most
wonderful, restaurants in America"), where green
walls and grimy, chintz-curtained rooms belie the excellence
of the "luxurious-tasting" (albeit expensive)
food. Most of the state-by-state listed restaurants are,
however, for dining on the cheap. They include Manny's
Coffee Shop in Chicago ("a temple of honest food"
), the Smokestack Bar-B-Que in Kansas City, Mo.--where
a "serious chaw of meat," according to the Sterns,
is "nothing less than the essence of the smoke pit,
like barbecue bouillon"--and Duke's Barbecue in Orangeburg,
S.C., where "there is no decor to speak of and .
. . no music other than the thud of the cleaver hacking
pork and the moans of pleasure, slurping, and licking
that are a symphonic expression of people enjoying one
of the great meals of the Southland.
Americana - Funny, insightful takes on America's roadside
landmarks: "the geographic center of north america
is in Rugby, North Dakota, and it's also the geographic
center of the densest population of roadside goliaths...big
statues are good, but bigger statues are better."
66 Cookbook: Comfort Food from the Mother Road - Marian
Clark's The Route 66 Cookbook is the only culinary guide
to what John Steinbeck dubbed "The Mother Road,"
including over 250 time-tested recipes from places like
the U Drop Inn, the Pig Hip Restaurant, Caveman Bar B-Q
and Steak House, Miz Zip's Cafe, Cotton Eyed Joe's, and
the Yippie Yi Yo Cafe. It's a living history of a time
when the flavors along the road changed as dramatically
as the landscape and the accents. Many of the places described
are still very much in action, just waiting for you to
pull up, slide into a booth or sit at the counter, and
ask,"What's good today?" .
Family Cookbook: As Compiled by Artie Bucco - This
tongue-in-cheek cookbook brings home style Soprano family
cooking to the table. Artie Bucco, the character (played
by John Ventimiglia) who is the chef at the show's Vesuvio
restaurant, sets the tone of this book of insider "family"
secrets by explaining his family's move from Campania,
Italy, to New Jersey, then turns to various Soprano characters.
(A brief chapter on Neapolitan cooking is explained by
the Newark Public Library's Natalie del Greco, who offers
recipes for a simple Marinara Sauce as well as a Sunday
Gravy.) In a chapter entitled "The Soprano Family
Tradition," Bucco listens as Corrado Soprano Jr.,
or Uncle Jun', reminisces about Newark's Little Italy
(which at one time felt like an "Italian Disneyland")
while whetting his appetite with thoughts of Pasta Fagiole
and Panzerotti (Neapolitan Potato Croquettes).
Ultimate Route 66 Cookbook - Serious food with a lighthearted
attitude! A pinch of Route 66 memorabilia, a dash of humor,
and two heaping helpings of honest American classics make
this the perfect guide to good eating. With culinary contributions
from roadside restaurants and well-traveled chefs, this
book is a treasured keepsake and valuable resource. Regional
specialties share the road with innovative treats, and
easy-to-follow instructions allow cooks of all experience
levels to create the recipes with ease, pleasure, and
enjoyment. Take a detour across Route 66 and sample these
down-home recipes from the legendary road.
