Sandi Kahn Shelton has featured A History of Connecticut Food over at Books New Haven. I love this:
"They risked weight gain as well as endured the tedium of slaving over a hot stove, trying out new old recipes, all for us, the reading public. This kind of personal sacrifice is nothing new for them: they did just this same kind of research when they wrote A History of Connecticut Wine: Vineyard in Your Backyard.That time they had to visit and sample many types of wine..."
It's a tough life sometimes.
