In this book the Idaho Humanities Council offers a gumbo of memories, "a cookbook you can take to bed with you." Forty-three contributors from Hayden to Pocatello offer recipes and culinary tales worth sharing. As the introduction states, it's not so much a cookbook per se, but an eclectic mix of poignant and humorous stories of the people behind food: a Nez Perce root-gathering mentor; a professor mixing politics and blueberry pancakes; a bookstore owner winning a blue ribbon and a new sense of community; survivors of the Great Depression who made soup from almost nothing. Sauerkraut Jello, Fried Squirrel, Pheasant Pie, Green Tomato Chow-Chow: this potluck explores these dishes and more through the secret ingredients of community, friendship, family, and memory.
