    DescriptionThis groundbreaking collection encompasses both sweet and savory favorites: yeast breads and quick breads, layer cakes and loaf cakes, doughnuts and fruit desserts, pies and simple pastries. Taking as his starting point 1796, the year the first American cookbook was published, Greg Patent, an accomplished baker, has mined sources from across the country for exemplary baking recipes by and for home cooks. Perusing old cookbooks, journals, and handwritten diaries from libraries and private archives, he has skillfully recreated treasured recipes or used them as inspiration for his own thoroughly up-to-date creations. Included are historical finds like the original Parker House Rolls; Lindy’s Cheesecake, from the world-famous New York restaurant; and a sensationally easy butterscotch cake that won a national baking contest in 1954. Here as well are hundreds of contemporary standouts, such as Malted Milk Chocolate Layer Cake, Blueberry?Lemon Curd Streusel Muffins, Peaches and Cream Cobbler, and Raised Potato Doughnuts.

    Review quote
    "(R)eading Greg Patent's masterfully researched book with his inspiring recipes is a feast in itself, and baking from it fills you with a sense of pride and participation in the ongoing evolution of American baking." - Flo Braker, author of The Baker's Dozen Cookbook, The Simple Art of Perfect Baking, and Sweet Miniatures "(A) remarkable book containing recipes from the past plus many contemporary recipes. It's also a valuable course. . . that you can take at home without going to baking school." - Marion Cunningham, author of The Fannie Farmer Cookbook "The qualities that distinguish American baking are the very qualities that distinguish this epic book and American cuisine itself: simplicity, straightforwardness, experimentation." - Betty Fussell, author of I hear America Cooking "Although rooted in the past, all the recipes ring with a note of welcome surprise.

This is the first book I'll go to when I want to bake." - Jill Melton, senior editor, Cooking Light "Traditional American cuisine has gotten short shrift for far too long. Greg Patent has made a valuable contribution by bringing to our attention its long and delicious history." - Russ Parsons, author of How to Read a French Fry and food editor of the Los Angeles Times "While some books are just collections of recipes, ths book contains the soul of our baking history as well as that of the author.
