"Kitchens of the Great Midwest" by J. Ryan Stradal
Each chapter tells the story of a single dish and character, at once capturing the zeitgeist of the Midwest, the rise of foodie culture, and delving into the ways food creates community and a sense of identity. See more

Editorial Reviews


"Mullen's uncommon, uncertain and shifting subject is a woman who in the blues tradition has been forgotten, oppressed and betrayed. Sapphire becomes traveling Jane who merges with other mothers, the essence lady, self-made woman, off bottom woman, brown gals, women of honey, hens, the bird, handsome gal, tomboy girl, a wave goodbye girl, big legged gal, sassy cook, outlaws, etc. By slinging insults and studying the world around her, she transforms her loss into lines that unravel, reform and trick the reader. -Barbara Henning, Poetry Project Newsletter -- Book Description
