What is American food? To answer this question—and dispel the myth that our nation is a culinary wasteland—food author and editor Gabrielle Langholtz presents us with America: The Cookbook, a comprehensive compilation (and celebration) of our country’s myriad traditions and regional favorite dishes. Langholtz is joined in by Seattle-based chef and author Renee Erickson and Portland, Oregon food legend Naomi Pomeroy. Together they open a conversation about America’s heritage of melting-pot fusion cooking techniques inspired by immigration and diversity, which has emerged into the rich innovative culture we know today. Through her thoroughly researched compendium of 800 home-cooking recipes, complete with state-by-state menus and essays from 100 of our foremost chefs and food experts, Langholtz invites us to explore the history of American cuisine.

Gabrielle Langholtz is the author of America: The Cookbook, former editor of Edible Manhattan and Edible Brooklyn, and previous head of special projects at New York City Greenmarket. Renee Erickson is a James Beard Award winner and co-partner of The Walrus and the CarpenterThe Whale Wins, Barnacle, Bar Melusine, Bateau, and General Porpoise, and author of the author of A Boat, a Whale & a Walrus. Naomi Pomeroy, a native Oregonian, cooks produce-forward food at Beast in Portland, Oregon. She won the James Beard Foundation Best Chef: Northwest award and is author of Taste and Technique, winner of an International Association of Culinary Professionals award.

Presented by Town Hall Seattle as part of the Arts & Culture series.
