“License to Cook Iowa Style,” in the popular recipe-card file size, stocking stuffer format, is filled with recipes and notes about the best of Iowa. The striking cover shows the license plate designed for the Iowa Sesquicentennial. In tribute to the development and progress of 150 years, hardy, delicious recipes reflect natural products of the state as well as the diversity of its ethnic population and community lifestyles. Typical recipes from areas with notable concentrations of specific ethnic groups include, among others: an Amish-Mennonite Tapioca Pudding from Kalona; Czech Kolaches from the Czech Village in Cedar Rapids; a Danish Kringle from Elk Horn; Norwegian Rye Bread from Decorah; or Dutch Currant Bread from Pella. Band night, church social, or just backyard ice cream recipes preserve a culture that still prevails in many Iowa communities. There are prize recipes for preserving the bounty of the backyard garden, including: pickles, chutneys, and jams and jellies. And with an air of “State Fair,” recipes for meats and poultry abound, along with the breads, pies, cakes, and cookies. “Seeing Iowa” lists many of the well-known, and not-so-well-known places of interest to travel and see. Line drawings illustrating some of these attractions are found throughout the book, which presents a nostalgic flavor of the past, along with the vitality of the present.
