How did fudge, chicken soup, and graham crackers contribute to the cultural history of our nation? Culinary historian Barbara Haber takes a unique approach to the history of cooking in America, focusing on a remarkable assembly of little-known or forgotten Americans who helped shape the eating habits of the nation. As Curator of Books at Harvard University’s Schlesinger Library, Haber had access to more than 16,000 cookbooks from which she has drawn inspiring and often surprising stories of the way meals have shaped America’s past. Peppered throughout with recipes, Haber’s fascinating survey adds a delicious new dimension to America’s cultural heritage. “An intriguing rendezvous of food and history.” Illustrations.
