What is American food? To answer this question—and dispel the myth that our nation is a culinary wasteland—food author and editor Gabrielle Langholtz presents us with America: The Cookbook, a comprehensive compilation (and celebration) of our country’s myriad traditions and regional favorite dishes. Langholtz is joined in by Seattle-based chef and author Renee Erickson and Portland, Oregon food legend Naomi Pomeroy. Together they open a conversation about America’s heritage of melting-pot fusion cooking techniques inspired by immigration and diversity, which has emerged into the rich innovative culture we know today. Through her thoroughly researched compendium of 800 home-cooking recipes, complete with state-by-state menus and essays from 100 of our foremost chefs and food experts, Langholtz invites us to explore the history of American cuisine.

Gabrielle Langholtz is the author of America: The Cookbook, former editor of Edible Manhattan and Edible Brooklyn, and previous head of special projects at New York City Greenmarket. Renee Erickson is a James Beard Award winner and co-partner of The Walrus and the CarpenterThe Whale Wins, Barnacle, Bar Melusine, Bateau, and General Porpoise, and author of the author of A Boat, a Whale & a Walrus. Naomi Pomeroy, a native Oregonian, cooks produce-forward food at Beast in Portland, Oregon. She won the James Beard Foundation Best Chef: Northwest award and is author of Taste and Technique, winner of an International Association of Culinary Professionals award.

Presented by Town Hall Seattle as part of the Arts & Culture series.

THE FOOD SEEN

On today’s episode of THE FOOD SEEN, it’s not all rain and fog in Seattle when Renee Erickson of Ballard’s beloved The Walrus and the Carpenter comes to us with her book of occasional menus, “A Boat, A Whale & A Walrus”. From crabbing as a child, to in the Puget Sound, to picking wild blackberries for jamming all along the Pacific Northwest, it was actually an education to printmaking and painting at the University of Washington, that had a profound effect on Renee’s opportune life. Luck struck first at Boat Street Cafe, and now finds itself next to the wood fire ovens of The Whale Wins. Fancying fishermen as friends and patrons, Renee serves a spread of herring butter on toast, grills Hama Hama oysters from the Olympic Peninsula, and eats spot prawns raw on Lummi Island, sharing these mouthwatering stories along the way. Hey, she may even invite you to her birthday party, or at least help you find a boat.


“Part of being a cook is relying on your purveyors and your farmers and the relationships you create with them.” [24:00]
