Description
While unpacking boxes of old family books, Eat, Pray, Love author Elizabeth Gilbert rediscovered a dusty hardcover called At Home on the Range, written by her great-grandmother Margaret Yardley Potter in 1947. Having only been peripherally aware of the volume, Gilbert dug in with some curiosity, and soon found that she had stumbled upon a book far ahead of its time. Part scholar and part crusader for a more open food conversation, Potter espoused the importance of farmer's markets and ethnic food (Italian, Jewish, and German), derided preservatives and culinary shortcuts, and generally celebrated a devotion to epicurean adventures. Reading this practical and humorous cookbook, it's not hard to see that Gilbert inherited her great-grandmother's love of food and her warm, infectious prose.

"For pure reading pleasure, try Margaret Yardley Potter, otherwise known as the memoirist Elizabeth Gilbert's great-grandmother.... Adventurous and funny, she could have drunk and smoked Elizabeth David, M.F.K. Fisher and probably even Dorothy Parker under the table."NYTBR
