The all-American state and county fair tradition is not all carnies, corn dogs, cotton candy, and apple pie. The fair is a place for communities to come together and share some of the most meaningful moments in life that can evoke affection and nostalgia. Liza Gershman's book is a visual feast-it's jam-packed with the images, stories, and voices of the folk and tight-knit communities who celebrate this unique slice of Americana each year. Beautifully illustrated throughout with stunning colour photographs of food, vintage, and retro ephemera, showcased here are close to 80 Blue Ribbon-winning recipes from across America's heartland. What's not to love about homemade pies and cakes, jams and jellies, pickles, preserves, and sweets! County Fair weaves together a celebration of classic, prize-winning regional specialties, secret tips for stocking your pantry, and the legacy of an American institution.
