Williamsburg’s fascinating form of time travel encompasses not only the architecture and the artisans, but all the details of our rich cultural heritage, including the food. And The Colonial Williamsburg Tavern Cookbook presents that food, our nation’s culinary heritage: from stews and slaws and soups to puddings and pies and pot pies–nearly 200 recipes in all. Focusing on Williamsburg’s Southern roots and coastal proximity, the dishes owe their inspiration to the distant past, but their preparations have been tailored for contemporary palates–no need to run out and get some suet in which to cook your mutton over the open hearth. The Colonial Williamsburg Tavern Cookbook is produced by the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, with recipes developed by John R. Gonzalez and photographs by Tom Eckerle; the work is edited by Charles Pierce. (Hardcover, 224 pages)
