Where is she now?

I'll continue to post updated recipes from my collection of vintage cookbooks, but in the meantime, please stop by 2050 A.D., a blog I've created to explore a wide range of sustainability issues (including food!).

And for your daily Nora Leah fix, check out my personal blog, Thought for Food.

this is all very interesting. How do you get people to cough up those crazy recipes?

Nora Leah Sherman said...

Oh, the recipes are actually from an anthology, "American Food Writing," by Molly O'Neill.

The book is a collection of essays from food writers as well as "regular" writers (Walt Whitman, Langston Hughes, Nora Ephron, David Sedaris, Anthony Bourdain....)

Molly included some recipes from throughout American history more as artifacts, I think, than actual suggestions for your basic family dinner. (Though some are quite "normal.")

I thought it would be fun to try to cook them all in a year. And it was!

Tobacco chili might have been good?

Nora Leah Sherman said...

Tobacco chili is a GREAT idea. We plan on competing again (we've got all sorts of improvements in mind!) so we will think about this. A Lot of people use coffee in their chili. We used a bit of cocoa powder. I will post the recipe soon!
