Adventures in Good Cooking

Duncan Hines made countless restaurants famous. He began publishing an annual cookbook--Adventures in Good Cooking--that brought many of the recipes from these famed restaurants to the home kitchen. Prized and highly coveted by the few cooks today who still have copies, the book's recipes came from many of the restaurants that Duncan Hines recommended to millions. Also, included were recipes from Hines's family and friends who shared his quest for quality food. Long out of print, Mercer University Press proudly revives this culinary classic as Adventures in Good Cooking.

The Dessert Book

Also back in print is The Dessert Book. It too brings home the recipes Duncan Hines collected as he traveled to the best restaurants in the country. This book not only gives food historians a glimpse into the desserts served in restaurants from that time, it also affords modern cooks a chance to recreate delicious recipes from a time when taste mattered more than calories.
