Crab Cakes

While many folk had been using crab in their recipes, combining the meat with spices and breadcrumbs or crackers, the term “crab cake” was first coined by Crosby Gaige in the 1930s. In his cookbook titled, New York World’s Fair Cook Book, he finally gave the popular recipe a name: “Baltimore Crab Cakes”.


Though it’s probably true that Southerners make the best cornbread, this treat was warmly embraced by the European settlers who came to the New World, where they found maize.
