The best crowd-pleasing recipes from widely acclaimed country inns and bed & breakfasts in the United States are collected in this unique cookbook and travel guide. More than 340 inns and 1,500 recipes are collected here, some from the finest chefs in America, while others represent the best in mouth-watering homestyle cooking.
More than a cookbook, Best Recipes from American Country Inns and Bed & Breakfasts is organized alphabetically – state-by-state. It is a reliable guide to the inns themselves, including addresses, phone numbers, and a listing of activities available at each inn. There are two extensive indexes. One allows you to find the inns by city and state, and the other allows the reader to find any recipe or type of recipe quickly and easily.
Kitty and Lucian Maynard have written two similar books, The American Country Inn and Bed & Breakfast Cookbook, Vol. I and Vol. II. These have been selections of Book-of-the-Month Club, the Better Homes and Gardens Book Club, and Family Bookshelf. The first book was featured on the back of Just Right cereal boxes. Reviews rave about the excellent, tasty recipes:
“Everything we tried was terrific!” – Brunswick (Maine) Times Record
“Many of these dishes are unique creations of the inn chefs and are not to be found elsewhere.” – The Midwest Book Review
“Chock full of mouthwatering recipes . . . a grand selection of entrees.” – Levittown (Pennsylvania) Courier-Times
One of my best go-to cookbooks. Have authors 2 previous similar publications, which are my most used cookbooks. Bought their first book after reading a recipe published in the LA Times almost 30 yrs ago, then went out and bought the book. Love reading about the Inns around the country from which the recipes come. Frequently will give one of their books as a bridal shower gift. Definitely a dog-eared keeper.
Best cook book ever for breakfasts and brunch. This is my 2nd of the same book. I wanted one at each of my two homes.
I had purchased a book of the same title printed years earlier, with which our family was most pleased. However, my sister purchased the newer edition, which contained all of the recipes in the earlier printing….and MANY, MANY more!! The later edition is hard covered, only cost me $11.50 and is like new. The recipes contained therein are wonderful, easy to make, do not contain dozens of spices that are not found in existing spice racks or other exotic ingredients. This is the BEST cookbook we’ve ever had….and the vendor’s description of the book was exactly as described…LIKE NEW!! Purchased at Amazon. GREAT PURCHASE ALL AROUND. THANKS!
