From the ethnicity of the pioneers to the diverse bounty of the land, the food heritage of Oregon's early settlers is the soul of "Eating It Up In Eden: The Oregon Century Farm & Ranch Cookbook."
Author and historian, Richard H. Engeman will be "talking it up in Hood River" on April 12 at 6:30 p.m. at the History Museum of Hood River County as he recounts his special experiences with the century farm families who shared not only their tasty recipes but also their personal memoirs and historic photographs.
This is a unique cookbook with delicious dishes that also tells a great story about our rich agrarian roots.
"We are excited about bringing this program to The History Museum. Mr. Engeman weaves such charming and heartfelt stories around his experiences," said Ellen Shapley, Farm Life Voices program chairperson.
This is the second in a series of Monday evening Farm Life Voices programs offered by The History Museum in celebration of their current exhibit entitled "Farm Life: A Century of Change for Farm Families and Their Neighbors."
Admission is free but donations are appreciated.
