Mitsitam Cafe Cookbook

Museum Cafe publishes cookbook[T]he cafe focuses not only on what the museum promotes, but a cuisine that can be difficult to find at your neighborhood restaurant: the different varieties of Native American cooking.

Apparently the cuisine has found enough of an audience to warrant a cookbook. On Oct. 18, Fulcrum Publishing will release The Mitsitam Cafe Cookbook: Recipes from the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian. The cookbook is available online, and presumably in the museum gift shop as well. Recipes range from squash blossom soup to pulled buffalo sandwich with chayote slaw.
