This scholarly treatment of food culture as it reflects the daily life and values of early Americans starts with a chronology from 1567- 1825. A New England food historian, who publishes Food History News, traces the evolution of regional American cuisine from homeland and indigenous cultures. Oliver examines food preparation and the influences of health, nutrition, and religious beliefs (Christian, Jewish, and African slave) on menus. The volume includes some recipes, cooking-related photos, and a glossary of such culinary terms as bannock, frumenty, and samp. Annotation © 2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
