“In this lean book, Ann Chandonnet manages to cover the wide variety of Colonial food, exploring the foodways of the original 13 colonies, but also reaching into French and Spanish territories, as well as Native American food. Her wide reach makes it clear that Colonial food had a varied character, based on the settler’s own traditions, what they found in the New World, and how they interacted with other communities.” —Culinary Historians of Washington, D.C.
