Learning to Cook Adirondack

FrontCover375Learning to Cook Adirondack, is a collection of recipes and memories.
The book includes 48 recipes and many historic photos.
Best comes from a long line of Adirondack folk. Her great grandfather,
David Charbonneau, was one of the first settlers of Old Forge. Her grandfather
and grandmother, Cliff and Edith Charbonneau, lived in Old Forge almost all
of their lives. Her parents, Betty and Bill Pulling, were brought up in Old Forge
and raised their family in Thendara. Best was born in the area as were her children
and her first grandchild.

“I have lived all over the country, in both big cities and back woods. But no matter where
I’ve been, at some point, at a dinner party or church fellowship someone asks what nationality I am. I’ve always said that I am American. My mom, dad, all four grandparents and the bulk of my great grandparents were all from this country. But in the second 50 years of my life I have decided that I am more than American, which I am through and through, I am mostly Adirondack,” Best said.

open_fire_book

Adirondack native Nancy Pulling Best has published her second cookbook.
“I have had such wonderful success with my first cookbook that I decided to do another one,” Best said.
“My good friend and classmate, Gordy Rudd, inspired me to write about cooking over an open fire.”

Best’s new book, Learning to Cook Adirondack Over An Open Fire, is a collection of recipes and memories
just like her first cookbook. It includes nearly 50 recipes, many historic photos and stories to go along with each one.

“There is something for everyone,” Best said. “From dough on a stick to turkey in a trash can… it’s not just hotdogs anymore.”

“Girl Scouts, good friends and family all helped me learn to cook on the original Adirondack stove… the open fire,”  Best said.
