Filled with fun facts about food trends, from Hamburger Helper toThe Moosewood Cookbook, and food personalities, from Julia Child to Rachael Ray,The Warmest Room in the Houseis the perfect addition to any well-rounded kitchen larder.Gdula, Steven is the author of 'Warmest Room in the House How the Kitchen Became the Heart of the American Home, 1584 to the Present', published 2007 under ISBN 9781582343556 and ISBN 1582343551.
