About the book
Riding a wave of nostalgia for simpler days, more and more Americans are returning to dinnertime rituals as a way to reconnect with their families, and comfort foods as a satisfying alternative to haute cuisine. These made-from-scratch dishes come back to life when you open the pages of The Good Home Cookbook.
In this highly ambitious effort, Richard Perry led his team to identify recipes that formed the foundation of American cuisine, then recruited hundreds of home cooks from all 50 states to test and retest the recipes before they were accepted for inclusion. The result is a timeless compendium of more than 1,000 familiar favorites and beloved classics, a collection that no home should be without.
Simple and user-friendly, the cookbook features easy-to-follow instructions, vintage-style illustrations, menu planning ideas, and more. The Good Home Cookbook is an instant classic and a collector’s item for culinary enthusiasts of all ages and skill levels.
