A new take on classic recipes from the great American diner.

The American Cookbook is a fresh, foodie approach to American comfort food - think the tastiest hamburger, apple pie, or cornbread recipe with a gourmet twist.

The American Cookbook features over 150 dishes, including fluffy pancakes, buffalo wings, delicious Southern food and everything you need for that perfect Thanksgiving dinner or American bbq - all with mouthwatering contemporary alternatives. So traditional apple pie morphs into Strawberry and Huckleberry pie and the classic truck-stop burger and fries becomes Chargrilled Burger on Hot Sourdough with Sweet Potato Chips. Explore the Italian, Asian and West African influences on classic American food too, and follow the easy step-by-step sequences to find out how to make burgers, sauces and marinades.

From wraps and rolls to sweet pies and cheesecakes, The American Cookbook is here to help you create healthier versions of your favourite American fix and create the best gourmet food.

  • American food is hot right now. Saving money is always trendy. Great recipes.

    This book covers some great American recipes. If you have young kids then this book will be a great help for making memorable hot dogs or perfect brownies. There should probably be a health warning on books like these but if you have ever travelled to the Us then you know just how good their cuisine can be. From biscuits and gravy to salad dressings, The American Cookbook will remind you of that time when… every time.
