The Great Chicago Melting Pot Cookbook
ISBN: 0898650283

Schiffer Pub Ltd. 1997

A city with the representation of literally hundreds of ethnic groups, Chicago has rightfully earned its nickname as the melting pot of America. The authors of The Great Chicago Melting Pot Cookbook have selected a representative group of these nationalities and, in over 400 recipes, have presented the best of their native cuisine. One of the most distinguishing characteristics of a culture is its cooking and The Great Chicago Melting Pot Cookbook is a delightful way to get acquainted. Over the years, American immigrants have adapted the recipes from their homeland to reflect the tastes and available ingredients of their new country. The recipes found here are easy for the American cook to follow, yet still retain the character of the original cuisine.
