Want to celebrate Steven Spielberg’s Civil War epic? That doesn’t mean you have to serve hardtack or roasted raccoon – two recipes that appear in the A. Lincoln Cookbook. Instead, make a feast worthy of a modern-day president. Our menu includes roasted quail (the birds are hunted in the movie), along with roasted root vegetables and cornbread, two reported staples of Lincoln’s diet. Apples, one of his favorite foods, star in the dessert, a homey brown butter apple cake.

Lincoln menu:
Roast Quail with Apple and Calvados
Roasted Winter Vegetables with Maple-Ginger Glaze
