Join the Broad Street Readers in January when we discuss “Kitchens of the great Midwest” by J. Ryan Stradal, a fictional tale exploring the culinary landscape of the American heartland and the making of a star chef. The Broad Street Readers now meet twice a day (once in the morning and once in the evening) for the convenience of its members.
“Kitchens of the Great Midwest is a novel about a young woman with a once-in-a-generation palate who becomes the iconic chef behind the country’s most coveted dinner reservation. It was selected as a best book of the year by Amazon, BookPage, LibraryReads, and NPR.” –Penguin Random House Publishers
“Kitchens of the Great Midwest is a terrific reminder of what can be wrested from suffering and struggle – not only success, but also considerable irony, a fair amount of wisdom and a decent meal.”—Jane Smiley, The Guardian
“Stradal’s first novel is a refreshing and brisk read, with a sophisticated sense of such glories of foodie culture as open-pollinated heirloom corn, pan-seared Walleye and Caesar Cardini’s original Caesar Salad.”—BBC.com
