"I don't know anybody who is NOT championing local produce and local cooking. American cooking as an approach, a body of work, sociology or history-that's a pretty big club and it is shifting quickly. Right now, probably the most substantial work is being done by organizations like Southern Foodways, Slow Food USA, and the Edible communities and magazines, individuals like Jan Longone at the Clements Library at the University of Michigan and Andrew Smith (editor of the Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America), as well as sites like,,, and Francis Lam at Salon,com. Magazines like Gastronomica and Saveur pay attention to America, and writers like Anne Mendelson, Laura Shapiro, Warren Belasco, John Egerton, and Mark Kurlansky are wonderful chroniclers of the fascinating, the good, and the repulsive. Historically, the best were the late Evan Jones (as well as Judith Jones' series on American regional cookbooks), Clementine Paddleford, James Beard, Waverley Root and, as far as cookbooks go, Irma Rombauer (author of The Joy of Cooking)."Project Foodie - Molly O'Neill's One Big Table:
