Description
This delightful catalog is a visual history of American gastronomy through labels, advertising, menu covers, cartoons, calendars, recipes, and other ephemera about food, beautifully reproduced in more than 350 color plates. The author of the Julia Child Award winners Heirloom Vegetable Gardening and Pennsylvania Dutch Country Cooking, as well as the Director of the Keystone Center for the Study of Regional Foods and Food Tourism, William Woys Weaver finds a delicious history in these colorful items (starting with an 1889 popcorn bag featuring Yum-Yum from The Mikado, which was a national craze at the time).

"A food lover's print version of the Antiques Roadshow ... perfect for the foodie collector and history buff."Epicurious.com
