New Book: Blue Ribbon USA

I just learned that earlier this year John Margolies and Georgia Orcutt released another volume in their series of retro-style cookbooks. Their latest effort is called BLUE RIBBON USA, featuring recipes from county fairs.

I really enjoyed the authors' COOKOUT USA and COOKING USA. I've only tried a couple of the recipes thus far, but what really sets these books apart is their beautiful graphic design. The books are filled with reproductions of vintage postcards, maps, magazine covers, travel brochures, and advertising photos.

For more on COOKOUT USA, see my post from Labor Day weekend, 2006.

I'm looking to checking out this latest title soon.
