Ethnic American Cooking: Recipes for Living in a New World is much more than a cookbook. It contains recipes from almost every nationality or ethnicity residing in the US and includes a brief introduction to understanding how those recipes represent that group's food culture. It illustrates the ways in which recipes, like identities, are fluid, adapting to new ingredients, tastes, and circumstances and are adjusted to continue to carry meaning-or perhaps acquire new ones. The book is based on the two-volume Ethnic American Food Today: A Cultural Encyclopedia, which looked at the way ethnic groups in the US eat. Here, the recipes of the varied groups are brought together for the adventurous chef, the curious reader, and the casual cook alike.

The recipes have been tested for use in modern American home kitchens with ingredients that can be found in most supermarkets. Substitutions and options are also suggested where needed. The dishes range from gourmet to everyday and offer a taste of the myriad ethnic culinary cultures in the US.

Review
Quintessentially a nation of immigrants, America owes its character as much to the diversity of its foods as to those who populate its land. Every newly arrived group brings its own foodways to America's shores, adding meats, fruits, vegetables, and spices hitherto unknown. With no access to ingredients that can't thrive in North America's climate, creative substitution became a necessity, and so dishes drifted from their originals. Here, Long inventories the different nationalities in alphabetical order and provides one or two recipes for each, typifying the kinds of foods immigrants imported. Long makes it her business to find something to illustrate just about every ethnic tradition: China, Italy, France, Germany, and even diminutive Vanuatu islands and San Marino¡­. Long has tried to reflect the challenges and realities of immigrant cooking with commonly available American supermarket meats and produce. (Booklist)

[Ethnic American Cooking is] about the recipes. And part of the fun is armchair quibbling over what the representative dishes are. (Appetite for Books)

Scholars of American foodways, take note. Ethnic American Cooking is a rich source of primary material, recipes redolent of the lives and cultures of the many people from around the world who call America their home, and as an added bonus, it offers you a wonderful source of inspiration for your own kitchens. (Hasia Diner, Paul S. and Sylvia Steinberg Professor of American Jewish History; Director, Goldstein-Goren Center for American Jewish History; New York University)

Lucy M. Long's Ethnic American Cooking: Recipes for Living in a New World brings together a world of tastes for readers who don't need to leave home. A wonderful collection of dishes that are not usually thought of as American, Ethnic American Cooking provides an introduction to a wide range of national cuisines at the same time it reveals the creative ways these recipes are adapted to the American context. (Diane Tye, Professor, Department of Folklore, Memorial University of Newfoundland)

This volume is based on a superb idea, that of providing a practical demonstration-through recipes-of the widely varied foodways of scores of ethnic groups in the U.S. Each entry is preceded by a brief introduction to that ethnicity and is followed by reference to more detailed information in Lucy Long's encyclopedic Ethnic American Food Today. I highly recommend Ethnic American Cooking. Those wishing to discover the richness of food traditions in contemporary America and expand their culinary repertoire will find Ethnic American Cooking a unique and valuable resource, one they will use for years to come. (Michael Owen Jones, Professor Emeritus, Department of World Arts and Cultures/Folklore Studies Concentration, University of California, Los Angeles)
