Middle Western States
Four generations of recipes from the kitchen of the Anderson House, the oldest continuously operating hotel in Minnesota, have gone into the making of The Anderson House Cookbook. Famous for its wonderful breads and desserts, the Anderson House has championed a tradition of homemade quality that has brought visitors flocking to the historic inn overlooking the Mississippi River.
“How Iowa Cooks is a 266-page book full of the best of the heartland. . . . The breadbasket of America is amply represented in the more than 600 recipes, from all over the state.” Spiral.
In the farm home of America’s past, the hearth of the home—the kitchen—represented the warmth and well-being of the family that met daily to enjoy hearty, homemade food and converse with pleasure. Award-winning artist Bob Artley evokes this ideal in this beautiful homage to the traditional Midwestern farm kitchen. Filled with heirloom family recipes and cozy memories and accompanied by Artley’s signature pen-and-ink drawings and full-color illustrations, this memoir provides a nostalgic and affectionate look at rural life, family, and food from a simpler time.
While Vern Berry was moving with her husband and family to Colorado in 1927, she thought of her ancestors on their pioneer journey from Kentucky to settle in the Heartland—Indiana, Illinois, and Iowa. The image of each woman doing her best to keep her family well fed and healthy in a pleasant home inspired her. Many years later, Vern, with the help of coauthor Connie Heckert, has compiled a wonderful collection of family recipes and history, the story of how those six generations lived and cooked in the Midwest.
