Praise

“This very important book will open the reader’s mind to the culinary wisdom and ingenuity of the Native peoples of the Americas. Then it will open the reader’s mouth to an enticing world of new flavors, which are in fact ancient and indigenous.”
–Deborah Madison, author of Local Flavors: Cooking and Eating from America’s Farmers’ Markets
 
“The best reflection of original American food and recipes to date.”
The New York Times
