Tempt Me: The Fine Art of Minnesota Cooking

Ingram-Minnesota Historical Society Press


In search of something to savor:our senses come into play: smell and taste:of course:but at the very start is sight. Cookbooks are judged by their covers. Mounds of delectable produce inspire shoppers to plan bountiful meals. Kitchenware and appliances promise culinary delights:and design is almost as important as function. It's simple: food is more delicious if it is pleasing to the eye.

In this collection of vintage recipes:evocative illustrations:and vivid ads:Kathryn Strand Koutsky and Linda Koutsky take readers on a tour of Minnesota's foodie ephemera of the 1880s through the 1980s: charming cartoon cooks:alluring seed catalog covers:and imaginative and decorative drawings celebrating cuisines from around the world. As the artwork and stories show:styles and approaches may change through the decades:but the goal remains the same: tempt your customers' appetite by elevating food and cooking to fine art.
