Retro Diner: Comfort Food from America's Roadside
Jump back through time to an era when sitting at the counter in your neighborhood diner was sure to bring hearty made-from-scratch food, friendly service, and an atmosphere all it own. Those sleek stainless steel eateries can still be found with lines of faithful and appreciative customers waiting to scoot into a red leather booth and sink their appetites into true American comfort food. The waitress may holler out your order in slang only a diner-phile may understand, but if you're a regular she probably remembers your name. Look! Here's that slice of Mile-High Meringue Pie to top off your meal! The first luscious mouthful will take you away to where Elvis is on the nickel jukebox and friends walk in the door.
Featuring a fun, colorful journey through diner history, Retro Diner offers over 115 of the best comfort food recipes from the American roadside, including Blue Moon Diner's Patty Melt, Steeltown Meatloaf, Dixie Diner's Blueberry Pancakes, and Peach Cobbler from Jake's.
