Description: North of the Mohawk River in central New York is a vast area known to most of the world for the grandeur of its woods and waters, with a population, according to an old local joke, that is "more cows than people." This "North Country" also is home, however, to a surprising diversity of cultural groups who have adopted and adapted to the local landscape with a rich tapestry of customs and traditions, among those producing and serving good food.
Folklorist and celebrated home cook Lynn Ekfelt has researched in communities all over northern New York to produce this very informative and entertaining book called Good Food, Served Right. The result is this collection of historical sketches, recipes, and essays about family and community gatherings to let you know that "we are what we eat."
