Gone! Claimed by Terry of Lemay, Missouri
Harley and Davidson Family Recipes: Celebrating 100 Years of Home Cooking | “More than 100 years ago, best friends William S. Harley and Arthur Davidson made history when they created the first ‘motorized bicycle’ and founded the Harley-Davidson Motor Company. But there’s another story. Over the century, the Harley and Davidson families grew up together, celebrating their company’s milestones with road trips, hunting and fishing sallies–and lots and lots of eating. In HARLEY AND DAVIDSON FAMILY RECIPES, the founders’ grandchildren Margo Manning and Carol Lange present 100 family recipes tailor-made for home gatherings and roadside picnics, including Gilroy 40-Clove Garlic Chicken, Endurance Run Spinach Pasta Salad, and Grandma Harley’s Peach Cobbler. Packed with rare archival photographs and anecdotes about the families and their motorcycles.” — (List price: $19.95)

Stir the Pot: The History of Cajun Cuisine | “Despite the increased popularity of Cajun foods such as gumbo, crawfish etouffee, and boudin, relatively little is known about the history of this cuisine. Stir the Pot explores its origins, its evolution from a seventeenth-century French settlement in Nova Scotia to the explosion of Cajun food onto the American dining scene over the past few decades. The authors debunk the myths surrounding Cajun food – foremost that its staples are closely guarded relics of the Cajuns’ early days in Louisiana – and explain how local dishes and culinary traditions have come to embody Cajun cuisine both at home and throughout the world. Stir the Pot also explores the role that food plays in Acadia both in everyday life and on special occasions, such as boucheries (commonal butcherings), festivals, and holidays. The book closes with a personal memoir of growing up in Cajun country and witnessing the modern evolution of the cuisine, which brings the history to life.” —B&N (List price: $18.95)
