Revive your inner pilgrim and master the art of colonial cooking with sixty recipes celebrating America’s earliest days!

From their voyage on the Mayflower to the days of the American Revolution, early American settlers struggled to survive in the New World. Join us as we travel through time and discover how our forefathers fed their families and grew a nation, from eating nuts and berries to preparing fantastic feasts of seafood and venison, and learn how you can cook like them, too!

With gorgeous and whimsical hand-drawn illustrations from beginning to end, A Thyme to Discover, spanning the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, is an illustrated historical cookbook for foodies, history buffs, and Americans alike. Cohen and Graves reimagine old original colonial recipes from pilgrims, presidents, and Native Americans, and modify them to suit modern palates and tastes. Arranged chronologically as the English settlers cooked and ate their way into becoming Americans, these deliciously historical recipes include:

The First Thanksgiving, 1621: “Venison over Wild Rice Cakes” and “Pumpkin Pudding with Rum Sauce”

Alexander Hamilton’s “Beef Stew with Apple Brandy” 

Abraham Lincoln’s “Chicken Fricasee”

Rhode Island’s “Bacon-Kissed Clam Cakes”

Massachusett’s “Chowdahhhhh”

Forefather’s Day, 1749: “Sufferin’ Succcotash with Buttered Lobster”

And many more!

Including a “Tipsy Timeline” of New World alcoholic beverages, the menus of the oldest taverns in America, and other bite-sized tidbits to satiate your curiosity and hunger, A Thyme to Discover revives forgotten culinary traditions and keeps them alive, on your own dinner table.
