Foodie Culture Considered

Wednesday, June 22, 2016 | Permalink

Can a meal be a life-changing experience? Would people pay more for a meal than for an automobile? These are some of the burning questions answered in J. Ryan Stradal's new book, Kitchens of the Great Midwest. 

The book tells the life story of Eva, dish by dish. After her parents’ breakup, Eva lives with her father and learns his passion for food. Lars adores his daughter, and he feels compelled to pass on his love of food and cooking to this little girl. It works, and through heartbreak and hydroponic chocolate, Eva becomes a legendary chef. It is her story we read, but we also are given a glimpse into the world of The Foodie. It is simultaneously funny and moving. 

Don't miss this opportunity to see author J. Ryan Stradal explain it all to CapRadio’s Donna Apidone on Tuesday, July 12 at 6pm.

Please get your tickets now, and join us for this feast of words.
