Many people around the world, when asked to think of US cuisine, will tend to immediately think of fast-foods and fast food brands - such as cheeseburgers, hot dogs, and pizzas. However, there is a lot more to US cuisine than that - the United States is actually home to a rich variety of dishes and culinary traditions. For example: Here are some popular American recipes and dishes:
  • Chicago-style pizza - A deep-dish variety of pizza, originally from Chicago.

  • Chili con carne - A spicy stew made from meat (usually beef) and chile peppers. Some recipes also add other ingredients such as beans, onions, and tomatoes, although there are also people who adamantly say the recipe should not include such ingredients.

  • Clam chowder - A soup, created from a milk or cream base, and containing clams, flour, onions, potato, and bacon or salted pork. There are two main variations on the recipe:
    • A version of the recipe traditionally made in New York, sometimes known as "Manhattan clam chowder", which contains tomatoes.
    • A recipe traditionally made in New England, sometimes known as "New England clam chowder" or "Boston clam chowder". which does not contain tomatoes.

    New England clam chowder

  • Club Sandwich - A sandwich made using three layers of toast and two layers of filling. One layer of filling traditionally contains chicken or turkey breast. The other layer of filling traditionally contains bacon, lettuce and tomato slices. There are many variations on the basic recipe, some of which add slices of cheese or cooked egg.

  • Corn dog - A fast-food snack, traditionally eaten at fairs and other events. It is a hot dog, covered in cornmeal batter, and then deep-fried or baked. Corndogs are usually served on wooden sticks, and are usually eaten with ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard, or a relish.

  • Congealed salad - A salad made from flavored gelatin into which are embedded fruit or vegetables such as grated carrots. Sometimes other ingredients such as cream cheese, marshmellows, nuts, or pretzels may be added instead.

  • Eggs Benedict - Half an English muffin topped with bacon or ham, poached eggs, and Hollandaise sauce.

  • Fried chicken - Chicken coated in seasoned flour and then deep-fried. Fried chicken is particularly associated with Southern cuisine and with Soul Food.

  • Grits - One of Southern cuisine's most famous dishes. It is a porridge made from maize, and made be eaten either for breakfast or a side-dish with another meal.

  • Gumbo - A soup originally from Cajun and Creole cuisine. It has subsequently become widely popular along the whole coast of the Gulf Mexico, and has also been adopted by many Soul Food eateries and restaurants. The soup is made from meat or fish stock and containing bell peppers, celery and onion. Dried ground sassafras leaves ("filé powder), okra, or roux (wheat flour and fat) are used to thicken the soup, and other ingredients usually include assorted assorted meat, smoked pork or sausage, and shellfish.

    Shrimp gumbo

  • Johnny cakes - Fried pancakes made from cornmeal.

  • Key lime pie - This is a traditional dessert originally from the Florida keys. The dish is made from condensed milk rather than fresh milk, because in the days before refridgeration, it was hard or impossible to obtain fresh milk in the Florida Keys. Key limes, which are small limes native to the Florida Keys, are also essential to the dish. The key limes, sweetened condensed milk, and egg yolks, are all prepared in a pie crust, and additionally egg whites are also often used to make a meringue topping.

    Key lime pie

  • Laulau - A modern adaptation of a traditional recipe of Hawaiian cuisine, and usually served macaroni or rice salad. Laulau is made from salted butterfish and meat (beef, chicken or pork), all placed inside a taro leaf.

    Jambalaya

  • New York-style pizza - A style of pizza originally from New York (and still popular in that city). The pizza is made into large very thin wide slices, which are folded in half when eaten.

  • Poke - A salad made according to a Hawaiian recipe. The salad contains raw fish, fly fish roe ("tobiko"), tofu, onions, scallions and tomatoes. It is lavored using chillis or red pepper, sea salt, sesame oil and soy sauce.

  • Pumpkin pie - A pie containing a pumpkin-based custard. The pie is particularly associated with Halloween, and is also popular at Christmas and Thanksgiving. Spices such as cinnamon, cloves and ginger are used from flavoring, and it is often served accompanied by whipped cream.

  • Shrimp Creole - A Creole recipe, this dish consists of shrimps in a spicy peppery sauce made from tomatoes, celery, onion, and bell peppers, and then served over rice.

  • Succotash - A dish with its origins in native American cuisine, Succotash is made from butter beans, corn, and tomatoes, which are cooked together in butter.

    Succotash

  • Tacos - A U-shaped crispy corn tortilla stuffed with various fillings. Typical fillings include ground beef, cheese, lettuce, sour cream, and tomatoes.

Product Description:
The 200 recipes in this family-friendly collection deliver a revolution in slow cooking like only America's Test Kitchen can!

Who doesn't like the idea of throwing ingredients into a slow cooker and coming back hours later to a finished meal? Too bad most slow cooker recipes deliver mediocre results you'd rather forget than fix again. A team of ten test cooks at America's Test Kitchen spent a year developing recipes, and what they discovered will change the way you use your slow cooker.

Did you know that onions garlic, and spices should be bloomed in the microwave for five minutes before they go into the slow cooker? This simple step intensifies their flavor and requires no extra work. Did you know that a little soy sauce mixed with tomato paste adds meaty flavors to almost any stew and can often replace the tedious step of browning the meat? And do you know the secret to a moist slow-cooker chicken? Start the bird upside down to protect the delicate white meat from drying out.

Soul Food Love: Healthy Recipes Inspired by One Hundred Years of Cooking in a Black Family

By Alice Randall

Clarkson Potter
Released: 2015-02-03
Kindle Edition (226 pages)

Soul Food Love: Healthy Recipes Inspired by One Hundred Years of Cooking in a Black Family
 
Product Description:
NAACP Image Award Winner

A mother-daughter duo reclaims and redefines soul food by mining the traditions of four generations of black women and creating 80 healthy recipes to help everyone live longer and stronger.

 
After bestselling author Alice Randall penned an op-ed in the New York Times titled “Black Women and Fat,” chronicling her quest to be “the last fat black woman” in her family, she turned to her daughter, Caroline Randall Williams, for help. Together they overhauled the way they cook and eat, translating recipes and traditions handed down by generations of black women into easy, affordable, and healthful—yet still indulgent—dishes, such as Peanut Chicken Stew, Red Bean and Brown Rice Creole Salad, Fiery Green Beans, and Sinless Sweet Potato Pie. Soul Food Love relates the authors’ fascinating family history (which mirrors that of much of black America in the twentieth century), explores the often fraught relationship African-American women have had with food, and forges a powerful new way forward that honors their cultural and culinary heritage.
