Publisher's Weekly Review

Robling, a regular contributor to the radio show A Chef's Table, has assembled a beautifully designed collection of 80 recipes for foods that have faded into culinary obscurity. The author believes that "the nostalgic memories created by food are, without a doubt, the most evocative and compelling of all." Therefore, "all these foods must be saved." From simple entries like Tomato Soup and Marshmallows to comforting favorites like Parker House Rolls and Crockpot Apple Butter, many of the recipes are sure to evoke warm memories for most readers. Photographs by Mark Thomas are both enticing and affectionately kitschy. Chapter organization is somewhat illogical, however; readers searching for a homey dessert might not know whether to look in Sunday Suppers, Messy Food, or Home Before Dark. But with such an eclectic mix, that's understandable-and the exploration required to find just the right recipe is like taking a stroll back through the decades. (Oct.)
