A History of Pacific Northwest Cuisine: Mastodons to Molecular Gastronomy by Marc Hinton

With a dash of humor and a sprinkling of recipes, culinarian Marc Hinton chronicles the bounty of the Pacific Northwest from the mastodon meals of the earliest inhabitants to the gastronomic revolution of today. In this lively narrative, learn how Oregon’s and Washington’s chefs have used the region’s natural abundance to create a sumptuous cuisine that is stylish yet simple and how winemakers and brewers have crafted their own rich beverage tradition. From potlatches to Prohibition, seafood to sustainability and Lewis and Clark to James Beard, Hinton traces the events and influences that have shaped the Pacific Northwest’s edible past and created a delectable fare that has foodies and enophiles from around the world clamoring for a taste.

A History of Pacific Northwest Cuisine: Mastodons to Molecular Gastronomy by Marc Hinton will be available October 2013 from the History Press and booksellers throughout Oregon and Washington.
