Foods of the Americas

Native Recipes and Traditions

Overview

From the publisher

The culinary traditions of the native peoples of the Americas are celebrated in this lavish book produced in association with the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian. Written by chef Fernando Divina and his wife, Marlene Divina, who is of Chippewa heritage, Foods of the Americas presents 140 modern recipes that incorporate a wide array of foods cultivated by native people throughout North and South America.

The book also includes nine illustrated short essays by native writers that provide an American Indian perspective on a variety of indigenous food traditions. Illustrated with food photographs as well as images from the museum’s vast collections, the book was published to coincide with the opening of the museum’s flagship site on the National Mall in 2004.
