Oklahoma is the heart, it's the vital organ of our national existence, Will Rogers bragged about his native state in 1926. It's still true that what is best about America can be found in Oklahoma and that certainly holds true for its food.
Fifty nine of the leading cookbooks from the Sooner State have been selected to contribute their most popular recipes to create this remarkable collection. From chuckwagon breakfasts on historic pioneer wagon trails to classic diner meals on the Mother Road, Route 66, Best of the Best from Oklahoma has gathered together a selection of recipes that captures the culinary heritage of the state.
Good-old home cooking such as Mickey Mantle's Chicken Fried Steak, Cowboy Potato and Vegetable Bake, Philbrook's Italian Cream Cake, and Tortilla Wagon Wheels are just a sampling of the 400 or so recipes included in these pages. They're not just OK they're the BEST!
Best of the Best from Oklahoma is one of forty two volumes in Quail Ridge Press' acclaimed Best of the Best State Cookbook Series continuing the tradition of preserving America's Food Heritage.
