Gas up the car, Central Virginians. Our hero will be in Leesburg, Va, this Saturday signing her new cookbook, “Martha’s American Food.” I’m thinking Mother’s Day gift.
At a Costco, no less. Don’t they have Williams and Sonomas in Leesburg?
The cookbook, which is her 77th book (I had no idea), contains 200 recipes for food that “all Americans love to eat.” Arranged by region, the TOC promises chowder, ribs and fish tacos, as well as more Martha-grade dishes such as Whole-Wheat Spaghetti with Meyer Lemon, Arugula, and Pistachios, all with sidebars explaining the relationship of the dish to the region from which it hails. I can’t wait to see what she picks for Virginia. Please don’t let it be something related to ham.
