Montgomery County's earliest residents, Native Americans, developed agricultural communities and used the shores of the Potomac as a trading spot. European settlers farmed tobacco, eventually collapsing the County's economy until the Quaker community returned fertility to the land. The C&O Canal was the nation's first significant infrastructure project and helped create links to national and international markets. In the 20th century, the Marriott chain developed contemporary, industrialized food that signaled a changing world. The Agricultural Reserve was intended to preserve the county's rural past in the face of rapid change. Along with farming, it also preserved history and foodways.
This book includes a history of foods resourced, recipes served and famous locales for farms, restaurants and other agricultural noteables in Montgomery County, Maryland. This is not a cookbook but does contain several historical recipes, including The Mighty Mo Sandwich and Sauce (see the index photo).
Soft Cover - 224 pages - by Claudia Kousoulas and Ellen Letourneau
