AS AMERICAN AS . . .
“THE GREAT AMERICAN COOKBOOK: 500 RECIPES: FAVORITE FOODS FROM EVERY STATE’’ BY CLEMENTINE PADDLEFORD, EDITED BY KELLY ALEXANDER
In the 1930s, journalist Paddleford flew her plane around the country collecting regional recipes from home cooks. They were first published in 1960 as “How America Eats.’’ From clam chowder to arroz con pollo, some of the best are collected here, adapted for today’s cooks. (Rizzoli, $45)
