Willard, Pat

SUMMARY

What the Sterns did for road food, Pat Willard does for festive American group eating in this exploration of our national cuisine, with a never-before-published WPA manuscript as her guide. In America Eats! Pat Willard takes readers on a journey into the regional nooks and crannies of American cuisine where WPA writersincluding Eudora Welty, Saul Bellow, Ralph Ellison, and Nelson Algren, among countless otherswere dispatched in 1935 to document the roots of our diverse culinary cuisine. With the unpublished WPA manuscript as her guide, Willard visits the sites of American food's past glory to rediscover the vibrant foundation of America's traditional cuisine. She visits a booyah cook-off in Minnesota, a political feast in Mississippi, a watermelon festival in Oklahoma, and a sheepherders ball in Idaho, to name a few. Featuring recipes and never-before-seen photos, including those from the WPA by Dorothea Lange, Ben Shahn, and Marion Post Wolcott,America Eats!is a glowing celebration of American food, past and present.Willard, Pat is the author of 'America Eats!: On the Road with the WPA - the Fish Fries, Box Supper Socials, and the Chittlin' Feasts that Define', published 2008 under ISBN 9781596913622 and ISBN 1596913622.
