Beer (& More) In Food

Beer: The Condiment With An Attitude!

LibraryJournal.Com Takes A Look At Beer & Food: An American History

Posted by Bob Skilnik on February 19, 2007

Skilnik, Bob. Beer & Food: An American History. Jefferson, dist. by Independent Pubs. Group. 2006. c.258p. illus. ISBN 0-9778086-1-0. $24.95. BEVERAGES

Skilnik, whose previous books include The Low Carb Bartender, traces the history of American beer from Colonial times through the 20th century in this intriguing work. The author’s search for the connection between American cooking and beer results in the inclusion of more than 60 recipes for foods that use beer as an ingredient. Over half of these recipes are drawn from historical cookbooks and culinary pamphlets. More recipes for bread, meat, and even dessert dishes are also offered in a chapter dedicated to current American breweries, microbreweries, and trade organizations, each of which contributed several of their own favorite beer-flavored recipes. Larger public libraries with a demand for a short history of beer in America—with plenty of beer-laced recipes—may find this title useful.—John Charles, Scottsdale P.L., AZ
