Additional Details

Description: Minnesotans have always loved to eat out -- in the opulent dining rooms of fancy hotels, in piney resort halls, or in standard around-the- corner cafes, where the food is hot and plentiful. And the best of these enticing places inspire cherished memories of fabulous food and charming camaraderie. 

Minnesota Eats Out is a virtual romp through the state's dining spots, from early health resorts to Prohibition-era speakeasies to A&W drive-ins, illustrated with over one thousand photographs, postcards, menus, matchbooks, and collectible dishes. 

Accompanying this rich history is a priceless collection of recipes for dishes made famous through the years, like the pioneers' Indian Pudding and old favorites from Eibner's Bakery in New Ulm or Ruttger's Resort in Brainerd. Eleanor Ostman revised these recipes for preparation in modern kitchens. Embellished with historic photographs, collectible tableware, and restaurant ephemera, the recipes invite today's readers to re-create cherished flavor memories. 

Minnesota Eats Out, a one-of-a-kind venture into the state's history, serves up over a century of fine and fun Minnesota dining for your reading pleasure.
