In this audio adaptation based on Andrew Beahrs' book, the food writer searches for "lost foods of America." The print work was inspired by Mark Twain, who once made a list of the American foods he missed most while traveling at length in Europe. This production pares down Twain's list of favorite foods into a unique eight-course meal that narrator Nick Offerman makes sound real. Following in Twain's footsteps, chef Tyler Anderson seeks out and prepares nineteenth-century American delicacies such as prairie hen, raccoon, and Philadelphia terrapin. Dinner guests--Twain scholars and entertainers--provide lively dialogue on the food and on themes related to American history and identity. Offerman's deep, resonant voice and dry narration are perfectly suited to Twain's witty anecdotes. M.F.
