Quotes & Awards

  • “Historical gastronomist Sarah Lohman narrates her well-researched examination of how eight flavors made their way from the far-flung corners of the world to the cupboards of almost every American kitchen. Lohman’s clear diction is easy to understand, and her pronunciation of non-English names and terms has an authentic sound as she reveals the influence that politics, exploration, immigration, and socioeconomics have had on the transition of particular spices, such as black pepper, from the exotic to mainstream acceptance…Historic and classic recipes are included.”


  • Her enthusiastic charm and what you sense is genuine Midwestern niceness shine through. . . . Lohman is assiduous in tracking down early recipes and describing cooking techniques. New York Times
