The Mitsitam Cafe has become one the most popular attractions at the world renowned Smithsonian Museum. Drawing upon tribal culinary traditions from five regions - Northern Woodlands, Great Plains, North Pacific Coast, Mesoamerica and South America - the cafe's offerings feature staples that were once unknown in the rest of the world. Replete with beautiful photographs of the finished dishes as well as objects and archival photographs from the museum's vast collections, the innovative recipe book showcases the US' truly indigenous foods in 90 easy-to-follow recipes.
March 3, 2011 - The Mitsitam Cafe Cookbook won "Best in the World" Cookbook for the "Best Local Cuisine" category of 2010 from Gourmand at the Paris Cookbook Fair. Finalists in the category included cookbooks from China, Malaysia, and Spain. The Mitsitam Cafe Cookbook gathers Native American traditional recipes from the Smithsonian National Museum, offering recipes that draw on a range of culinary traditions from five Native cultures in the Americas. Ninety recipes are adapted here for home cooks and while some require access to unusual ingredients to be found locally in the wild- such as Fiddlehead Fern Salad or Smoked Trout and Dandelion Green Salad- most (such as Potato and Pinto Bean Enchiladas) can be easily duplicated simply with access to a good market. Any culinary library- and all Native American collections- will find this unusual and appealing. Midwest Book Review"
