How America Ate: Leone's Italian Cookbook

Oh geez, I hope it's the same Mamma Leone. How could that have escaped me when I wrote this? It's definitely where Brenda and Eddie hung out, though.

I think a slow cooker would be a great idea, although I've never used one. I don't see why it wouldn't work!

Mystery! Anybody heard of "The Wonderful World Of Cooking"?

I called Bonnie Slotnick, who knew of the book and even had a couple copies in stock, but didn't know much more about the author. Both she and the people at Kitchen Arts and Letters recommended I call around in Wisconsin to find out more about him, so maybe I'll try that next.

I've heard of that Clementine Paddleford book and have yet to pick it up! Bonnie also recommended a book called "The Country Kitchen" by a woman named Della Lutes for fans of the genre...I think next I'll try to get my hands on one of those, too.

Mystery! Anybody heard of "The Wonderful World Of Cooking"?

I picked up this book for a dollar at the Brooklyn Flea last weekend, and I've been scouring the internet ever since to try to find out more about it. It was published in 1956, written by a guy named Edward Harris Heth, who was apparently a novelist who worked in New York before settling in Wisconsin. The book is all about eating with the seasons, eating locally, has great, evocative recipes - very reminiscent of M.F.K. Fisher or Elizabeth David. I can't believe that this guy is seemingly lost to the ages! I'm heading to Bonnie Slotnick today to see if they know about it, but does this book ring a bell with anyone here?
