In the 1930s, Clementine Paddleford set out to do something no one had done before: chronicle regional American food. The Great American Cookbook is the culmination of Paddleford’s career. A best-seller when first published in 1960 as How America Eats, this coveted classic has been out of print for 30 years. Here are more than 500 of Paddleford’s best recipes, all adapted for contemporary kitchens.
