From the Jewish heartland : two centuries of Midwest foodways

by:Steinberg, Ellen FitzSimmons, 1948-

Traces the origins of Jewish cookery in the Midwest, from pioneers to Sephardic and Ashkenazic settlers, and from cities to farmlands. Surveying handwritten personal cookbooks, community archives, anecdotes, The Chicago Tribune and other sources, they reinforce food as ancestral memory and evidence of ingenuity. Extensive comparisons of recipes serve as clues toward generational and cultural shifts as well as adaptations to regional supplies and privations. A specialized resource for scholars of Judaica and food-devotees alike, the book presents classics such as gefilte and matzos alongside lesser-known dishes. It is a sometimes nostalgic look at preserving authenticity while embracing creativity.

Fried walleye & cherry pie : midwestern writers on food

by:Wolff, Peggy

With its corn by the acre, beef on the hoof, Quaker Oats, and Kraft Mac n' Cheese, the Midwest eats pretty well and feeds the nation on the side. But there's more to the midwestern kitchen and palate than the farm food and sizable portions the region is best known for beyond its borders. It is to these heartland specialties, from the heartwarming to the downright weird, that Fried Walleye and Cherry Pie invites the reader. The volume brings to the table an illustrious gathering of thirty midwestern writers with something to say about the gustatory pleasures and peculiarities of the region.
