If you're cooking on Wednesday you'll want this!
Give your Fourth of July celebrations some extra zing this week courtesy of America the Cookbook
Wondering what to cook this Fourth of July? There's an obvious place you could start - and it's not your local store or deli...
America the Cookbook is the first port of call for any aspiring Fourth of July gastronome - the go-to-recipe-compendium for all the tastes that made America great, highlighting and celebrating a continent of crab cakes and cracklins, huckleberries and huevos, fiddleheads and fatback.
The American culinary landscape is wild and wonderful but was kind of missed by many modern tastemakers until Phaidon's America the Cookbook editors trained their gaze on it.
So whether you're planning something slippery or sticky, sour sweet or searingly spicy for your celebration you'll find it in America the Cookbook.
Just make sure you pour a mint julep, a cold glass of sweet tea or a sumac punch, and raise it high as you make your toast. You can discover America in our art, architecture, design and photography books but we think you'll find it tastes just fine and dandy in America the Cookbook.
