Saturday, November 21, 2015 @ 12:30 pm
Matthew Gavin Frank takes readers on a richly illustrated culinary tour of the United States through fifty signature dishes, and a radical exploration of our gastronomic heritage in The Mad Feast: An Ecstatic Tour Through America’s Food. My Organic Life: How A Pioneering Chef Helped Shape the Way We Eat Today is the story of an unheralded culinary pioneer, Nora Pouillon, who made it her mission to bring delicious, wholesome foods to the American table. Toni Tipton-Martin’s The Jemima Code: Two Centuries of African American Cookbooks examines more than 150 black cookbooks that range from a rare 1827 house servant’s manual, to modern classics by authors such as Edna Lewis and Vertamae Grosvenor.
