Summary
  • "From the chef and host of A Taste of History comes a beautiful cookbook that features 100 elegant dessert recipes from America's earliest days and will capture the grandeur of the sweet table--the grand finale course of an 18th century meal. At this time it was common for hostesses to arrange elaborate sweet tables that were designed as works of art. A Sweet Taste of History will blend American history with exquisite recipes and it will show the reader not only how to recreate these incredible desserts but will also discuss the importance of each one, the social story behind them, and how these dishes landed on the tables of early Americans"--
  • "A Sweet Taste of History captures the grandeur of the sweet table--the grand finale course of an 18th century meal. Rather than serving something simple, hostesses arranged elaborate sweet tables, displays of ornate beauty and delicious edibles meant to leave guests with a lasting impression. A Sweet Taste of History will have the same effect, lingering in the minds of its readers and inspiring them to get in the kitchen. This gorgeous cookbook blends American history with exquisite recipes, as well as tips on how to create your own sweet table. It features 100 scrumptious dessert recipes, including cakes, cobblers, pies, cookies, quick breads, and ice cream. It includes original recipes from first ladies well-known for entertaining, such as Martha Washington's An Excellent Cake and Dolley Madison's French Vanilla Ice Cream. Chef Staib also offers sources for unusual ingredients and step-by-step culinary techniques, updating some of the recipes for modern cooks. This wonderful keepsake will bring a bygone era in America to life and inspire readers who love to cook, entertain, and follow history"--
