Summary
Willard takes readers on a journey into the regional nooks and crannies of American cuisine where WPA writers--including Eudora Welty, Saul Bellow, Ralph Ellison, Nelson Algren, and others--were dispatched in 1935 to document the roots of this diverse culinary cuisine. She visits a booyah cook-off in Minnesota, a political feast in Mississippi, a watermelon festival in Oklahoma, and a sheepherders ball in Idaho, to name a few. Featuring recipes and never-before-seen photos, including those from the WPA by Dorothea Lange, Ben Shahn, and Marion Post Wolcott, America Eats! is a glowing celebration of American food, past and present.
