The delicious, informative and entertaining cookbook tie-in to PBS's popular Emmy Award-winning series A TASTE OF HISTORY.

With HAMILTON-mania still going strong, there is a renewed interest in early Americana, and A TASTE OF HISTORY COOKBOOK provides a fascinating look into 18th century American history. Featuring over 150 elegant and approachable recipes featured in the TASTE OF HISTORY television series, paired with elegantly styled food photography, readers will want to recreate these dishes in their modern-day kitchens. Woven throughout the recipes are fascinating history lessons that introduce the people, places, and events that shaped our unique American democracy and cuisine. For instance, did you know that tofu has been a part of our culture's diet for centuries? Ben Franklin sung its praises in a letter written in 1770!

From West Indies Pepperpot Soup, which was served to George Washington's troops to nourish them during the long winter at Valley Forge to Cornmeal Fried Oysters, the greatest staple of the 18th century diet to Martha Washington's favorite Chocolate Mousse Cake, A TASTE OF HISTORY COOKBOOK is a must-have for both cookbook and history enthusiasts alike.
