Cather's Kitchens: Foodways in Literature and Life

Front Cover
U of Nebraska Press, Apr 1, 2002 - Cooking - 177 pages
0 Reviews
Roger and Linda Welsch matched references from Willa Cather's writing with recipes they collected from Cather family recipe files, from other period cookbooks, and from old-time ethnic cooks still living in the Bohemian tradition. Cather's Kitchens comes as close as possible to the precise recipes Cather had in mind and memory as she wrote.
