America's Best Breakfasts
Lee Brian Schrager and Adeena Sussman
As this book shows, breakfast is alive and well across America. It is organized by region with info on each cafe or dining establishment mentioned. There are a vast variety of recipes to choose from as well, ranging from the mouth watering Blueberry Cheese Danish and Lemon-Blueberry Waffles to some not usually associated with breakfast like The Deluxe BLT and Creole File Gumbo.
The cover itself is enough to whet one's appetite and the interior is full of great photos with clear recipe directions and suggestions for substitutes and tips for the cook when needed. Frankly, this book had me thinking about breakfast all day long. While most of us may not be able to take off on a journey from coast to coast to sample the country's breakfast traditions, it's nice to know that this book provides a great sampling of what's out there. Plus, depending on your region you might find a surprise or two in this book. I did, when I noticed that a dining establishment in my town was mentioned that I had not heard of locally.
Thanks to Blogging for Books for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
