This spectacular book is so much more than a cookbook. Robert Birkel
and Chef Armand Vanderstigchel have authored not only an outstanding
cookbook, but a wonderful travel guide and fascinating pictorial look
at the Adirondacks of upstate NY.
The recipes contained in this book come from local businesses and
residents from as far north as Lake Placid and as far south as Troy, NY.
You'll find photographs and drawings of beautiful mansions turned bed and
breakfast (some built as early as the 1850's), wonderful restaurants, and area resorts.
Each of these establishments have contributed favorite recipes. Each is accompanied
by a map, a history of the establishment, and information of things do
and see in the area. There's beautiful poetry and a generous amount of great
stories, footnotes to the recipes and wonderful anecdotes sprinkled throughout
the book. This is down-home cooking, done with pure love and a unique elegance
that simply touches your heart.
You'll find over 250 recipes for everyone from Adirondack Wildberry
chicken and Venison Chili, to Adirondack Blossoms (made with and pumpkin blossoms)
and Saratoga snowball cookies. Your cookbook collection will never be
complete without the Adirondack Cookbook. It's one of those cookbooks
that you'll turn to again and again for the really tasty, really
scrumptious recipes that will instantly become family favorites.
