Learn a little more about your fellow Americans through the food they love
There are so many different kinds of ‘American’ food, and here at Cook’s Country, we celebrate them all. We look at rural foods, from low country Shrimp and Grits to Grilled Cowboy Cut Rib-Eyes. We look at city foods, from Nashville Hot Fried Chicken to Citrus-Braised Pork Tacos perfected at a family-run spot in East Los Angeles. We search high and low, and in between for recipes from every community in the country, the old ones and the new, from centuries-old Common Crackers to modern-day Magic Chocolate Flan Cake. And we bring all these ideas back to the test kitchen, where we never stop working hard to create simple, foolproof recipes for you.

One-Pan Roasted Salmon with Broccoli and Potatoes
To ensure that all three components emerge from the oven well browned and and cooked just right, we call for an easy broccoli-salmon switcheroo part way through roasting. A simple stir-together of chives, mustard, and lemon gives this simple meal some pizzazz and adds a fresh note.
Hearty Beef Lasagna
We chose lean ground beef for its rich flavor and add a panade to it, which produces a soft-textured, easy-to-layer meat sauce. A a no-cook cream sauce with lots of Pecorino Romano and a little cornstarch for further thickening replaces the traditional bechamel sauce or layer of grainy ricotta.
Our challenge in creating a recipe for Detroit pizza—a crispy, buttery pizza from the Motor City—was figuring out how to mimic the tender crumb, the mild and melty cheese (which can be found only in Michigan), and the vibrant tomato sauce that covers the pizza.
Wellesley Fudge Cake
When it was first published in the magazine (way back in 2010), 94% of the subscribers surveyed said they’d make it again. The recipe will be featured for the first time on the TV show this fall, along with the story of our visit to Wellesley College to trace the recipes roots.
