A Thousand Years over a Hot Stove

By

Subtitled “A History of American Women Told Through Food, Recipes, and Remembrances,” Schenone examines the foods and food-related traditions of native Americans, early immigrants to New England as well as later immigrant groups, slaves, and pioneers to the West. She also probes changes brought about by early professional cookbook writers and new technologies for cooking. This handsome volume is studded with evocative pictures and period recipes.
