ABOUT THE BOOK:
St. Louis has an appetite for sure. The places that made it that way have fascinating tales of hard work and good flavor. From the white tablecloths of Tony’s to the counter at Woofie’s, the Gateway City came to culinary prominence. The glories of Union Station’s Fred Harvey restaurant and simple spots like the Piccadilly highlight the variety. Mai Lee serves as the city’s first Vietnamese restaurant, and Mammer Jammer was home of St. Louis’s hottest sandwich. Recipes are included, like a favorite soup of Missouri’s own Harry Truman.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Ann Lemons Pollack has been writing about food a good while, but not so long that she remembers all the restaurants in this book. She’s reviewed restaurants, written cooking columns and traveled for food, and she was daring enough to cook for and then marry the restaurant critic of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Joe Pollack. Together, they wrote three guidebooks to St. Louis food and many food and travel stories. Ann carries on the tradition and is currently found monthly in and online at St. Louis Magazine and on her blog, stlouiseats.typepad.com, where she also writes about theater.
