Spirit of the Harvest: North American Indian Cooking (Paperback)
Discover the Flavors of Native America from Coast to Coast
Presenting authentic American Indian recipes from every region, award winning cookbook author and food editor Beverly Cox worked with Native elders, food historians, chefs and home cooks to compile this impressive collection of recipes and food lore. From the Northeast to the Pacific Northwest, from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico, these 150 recipes reflect food traditions that evolved over centuries, and remain very much alive today. Roast Duck Stuffed with Wild Rice and Wild Mushrooms; Elk Stew with Acorn Dumplings; Smoked Salmon Soup; Zuni Corn Soup; Iroquois Leaf Bread; Ember Roasted Buffalo; Pueblo Fried Squash Blossoms; and Navajo Peach Crisp are but a sampling of the variety and ingenious use of natural and seasonal foods by Native American cooks.
Included in Spirit of the Harvest is a fully updated resources listing to assist in locating more exotic ingredients like fiddlehead ferns, acorn meal, and cattail pollen. This book is a must for all cooks wishing to celebrate and savor the culinary heritage of North America.
