Cookbook Giveaway: Martha’s American Food

By: Kirsten Vala

There’s no better way to celebrate America then to explore the amazing culinary diversity we enjoy across the nation. We’ve delved into regional traditions in-depth here at Cooking Channel, crowd-sourcing favorite dishes and developing them into our feature Across the Country in 50 State Dishes. Martha Stewart’s new cookbook, Martha’s American Food: A Celebration of Our Nation’s Most Treasured Dishes, from Coast to Coast, runs with this same idea, uncovering treasured local specialties and delivering classic recipes for iconic dishes. Along the way, through food, she uncovers interesting nuggets of American history, stories of immigration and beloved regional flavors.

Martha’s American Food begins with recipes for all-American favorites like blueberry pancakes, hamburgers, meatloaf and peanut butter cookies – you can never have too many recipes for these standbys, and Martha’s versions look fantastic. And then she divides the country into five regions: Northeast, South, Midwest, Southwest and West, with recipes, stories and fabulous photography capturing the uniqueness of each – it’s a culinary road trip!

Celebrate July Fourth with these dishes from Martha’s American Food:

Classic Potato Salad (All-American)
Boston Cream Pie (Northeastern)
