Whet your appetite with some fun facts: It's been around since 1937; it's sold in 44 countries; it's mostly pork, salt, and potato starch. Then get to the meat of the matter—the 100-plus recipes. It's a natural with eggs, including the Spam Benedict, in which seared slices stand in for Canadian bacon. For a fun party good, try the Spam Corn Dogs, sticks of Spam coated in a cornmeal batter. Or become an expert in Spam Musubu, a Hawaiin specialty made of a block of rice, a slice of Spam, and some nori. There are 11 different versions in the book, including one that's breaded in panko and fried, katsu-style. Before you get cooking, check out the book's foreword, written by our own executive managing editor, Tara Cov, who's a mid-century food maven and Spam superfan.Rachael Ray in Season Magazine

As a kid growing up in a Filipino family, the SPAM® Brand was a staple of our kitchen, and I’ve spent my life raving about its charms to the uninitiated — those unfortunate souls. All-American as it may be, the SPAM® Brand is an international phenomenon, and The Ultimate SPAM Cookbook does a phenomenal job capturing its remarkable global popularity.
