Take A Walk Down Main Street America Have a look at what some of this countries small towns are cooking up. Take a stroll down the sidewalk of just about any small town in this country and you’ll see lots of similarities. Not that all small communities are the same, not by a long shot. But, they do have some of the same common elements, especially when it comes to their downtowns.
You’re almost sure to find a drugstore, hardware store, small department store and of course a coffee shop or diner. These family owned eateries dot the landscape of the country. And, honestly, they sport some of the nation’s best eats.
All you have to do is flip on the Food Network and check out an episode or two of Diners, Drive In’s and Dives and you’ll get the idea in a hurry. In case you’ve been living under a real heavy rock or in a cave, I’m sure you’ve seen Guy Fieri ferreting out some of the best home-style food from coast to coast.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could have a collection of some of these great small town, regional recipes at your fingertips? Now you can. Publisher JE Cornwell has made it all possible. With the help of Editor Pam Eddings, they have assembled a great collection of these homespun dishes. Taste of Main Street America makes it possible for you to cook your way through the USA.
These aren’t the same places that Guy features on his show. But, they certainly are a representative sample of just how diverse the country can be, food wise that is. From appetizers through desserts, you’ll get a little bit of everything on your plate.
In case you’re thinking this is all meatloaf and mashed potatoes, think again. Sure, there’s the obligatory meatloaf recipe, this one’s from Granny’s Frying Pan in Havana, Florida. But, you’ll also be treated to Alaska White King Salmon with Gai Lan and Asparagus Salad from The Mermaid Cafe in Homer, Alaska and Lamb Osso Bucco with Orzo from Sugah’s Cafe located in Gunnison, Colorado.
If you’ve ever wanted to explore over two hundred Main Streets, but couldn’t seem to find the time
here’s your chance. There’s a little something for everyone in this nice collection. Just pick a page and take a relaxing stroll.

About the Author
The idea for this cookbook came about several years ago during election interviews with people across America. The term MAIN STREET AMERICA seemed to generate visions of hard-working Americans in local communities across the country. Our thanks goes out not only to our team who prayerfully put this together, but also to all the restaurants and their staff and communities across America who have willingly given us their favorite recipes and information about their Main Street restaurants for our cookbook.
