Editorial Reviews

Review

"Relatively few titles have been written covering American Indian Foods; much less in depth: this fact makes all the more valuable Linda Berzok's in-depth coverage of the history of American Indian foods and traditions. From how foods were gathered, prepared and stored to changing recipes, newly added foods, and food customs and traditions, American Indian Food is an important coverage."

-

MBR Bookwatch



"The text covers food preparation, preservations, customs and rituals and the diets in various regions. Berzok is careful to emphasize regional and tribal differences in practices."

-

Reference & Research Book News



"[E]xplores Native American foodways from prehistory to the arrival of Europeans to modern times, encompassing various regions and tribes….Complementing the narrative are a few recipies that describe how the dish was prepared, as well as a chronology, a glossary, and a selected biblipgraphy. Overall, this highly readable and thorough chronicle will be a welcome addition to public, academic, and high school libraries as it fills a gap in Native American and food history."

More About the Author

When Linda unearthed her late mother's voluminous recipe card collection, the spark was ignited for the eventual STORIED DISHES. "Food is a lens through which we see more deeply into culture and ourselves," she says. Her passion had already taken her to a Master's Degree in Food Studies at New York University where she also taught food writing. In addition to STORIED DISHES, she is the author of the best-selling American Indian Food for which she won a Linda D. Russo Travel Grant. In 1997, Linda explored food prehistory at an archaeological dig in Thailand, the only known site of burials in food. When not tracking down some new mystery in food history, she can be found in the kitchen cooking just about anything new or traveling to some exotic locale to research little-known dishes. She divides her time between Stephentown, New York and Tucson, Arizona where she is a founding member of Sabores sin Fronteras (Food without Borders). Linda also belongs to the Association for the Study of Food and Society, and speaks frequently about her mother's recipe collection, family recipes, food and culture, and women and food.
