When you've written as many books as Martha Stewart has (she's up to a whopping 77 by her own count), finding ways to add something new can be a challenge. But at a recent round table hosted by Stewart to kick off the Macy's American Icon campaign, the doyenne of American entertaining told us that readers can still learn a lot from her cookbook Martha's American Food: A Celebration of Our Nation's Most Treasured Dishes, From Coast to Coast
In it, Stewart gives a regional overview of what makes American food so special and includes recipes for everything from Indiana succotash to New York cheesecake. "American cooking is really an amalgamation of all the world's cuisines because we're the quintessential melting pot," she told us last week. "This book kind of incorporates by region what all those foods are."
So what sets this book apart from the rest of Stewart's oeuvre? Keep reading to find out.

Dishwasher-safe nonstick frying pans, pots with silicone handles that stay cool, and a safety focused pressure cooker are just a few of the features of Emeril Lagasse's new line of cookware for JC Penney. The line, which will be in the retailer's stores this month, includes everything from a knife set to a bread maker — but it's the deep fryer that Emeril got really excited about when showing off the new goods in New York City last week.
"It has this oil filtration system, and I can't tell you what that means today, especially in today's economic times. Oil – gas – as you know, is not cheap. We have testimonials from customers who've used their oil in this machine six, eight, nine, 10 times with this oil filtration system." Take a look at the other things that set this cookware apart.
