On the Menu: February 20 through February 26

On the Menu Here’s what’s happening at the Beard House next week: Wednesday, February 23, 12:00 P.M. Beard on Books Ten years ago, former New York Times Magazine writer Molly O’Neill embarked on a cross-country journey to investigate the so-called “end of American cooking.” Instead she found scores of Americans making daily tributes to their cultural and filial histories through food. Ten years, 300,000 miles, and 5,000 interviews later, O’Neill has compiled the recipes she gathered from across the nation in One Big Table: A Portrait of American Cooking.  Part cookbook, part historical record, One Big Table chronicles not just what we eat, but why—from foraged dandelion and spring garlic salad to pueblo tamales and Rice Krispies treats. Wednesday, February 23, 7:00 P.M.
