Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2004-12-01)

The consultant for the PBS special Sandwiches That You Will Like, Mercuri (Food Festival, U.S.A.) provides fun facts and stories behind such signature American specialties as Philadelphia's Cheese Steak Sandwich and New Orleans's Muffaletta. Many of the recipes come from cafes, delis, or other restaurants and reflect the multitude of ethnic influences that have shaped this country's cuisine. Mercuri includes addresses for the restaurants cited and other places of interest, along with mail-order sources for specialty ingredients; amusing period photographs are scattered throughout. A bargain at the price, this entertaining cross-country tour is recommended for most collections.
