Exploring Appalachian Cooking with Ronni Lundy
Mining for rich flavors from the Mountain South.
You don’t have to move mountains to try the best of regional cuisine. We’ll bring it to you with a national expert on Appalachian cooking! Join us as we welcome James Beard Award-winning author Ronni Lundy on Tuesday, May 15th, to teach us about the deep history and delicious food of Appalachia! The Roadhouse loves learning about the foodways of the United States, and we are excited to introduce our friends to the bounty of a beautiful region steeped in tradition.
Ronni Lundy has been a specialist in traditional American foods since the early nineties. Her work has appeared in Esquire, Gourmet, Bon Appetit, Cooking Light, Eating Well, Sunset, and Copia. Her latest book, Victuals, has won Book Of The Year and Best Book of American Cooking at the 2017 James Beard Foundation Awards, as well as 2017 International Association of Culinary Professionals’ Award for Best American Cookbook.
Folk singer Emmylou Harris says:
“Victuals is so much more than just another cookbook. It’s a marvelous travelogue and history of an under-appreciated and often misrepresented part of America, its people and culture…”
The stories in this epic tome connect us with the farmers, curers, hunters, and chefs who gave shape to the landscape of Appalachian cuisine. Head Chef Bob Bennett and Ronni have put together a menu from Victuals that will capture the soul of the Mountain South. We can’t wait to taste Anson Mills’ Blue Corn from the mountains of the Carolinas in the Palisades Hominy Salad, or the fresh flavors that will spring from Shelly Cooper’s Grilled Trout dish.
Be ready for a majestic adventure with Ronni Lundy as we explore the heart of America! Copies of Victuals will be available for purchase and autograph. Seats are limited! Don’t miss this rare Ann Arbor visit by one of the country’s leading experts on the little known but delicious cooking of Appalachia.
