Local historian and archivist Richard Engeman, is the author of one of the most essential books on my Oregon bookshelf, The Oregon Companion: An Historical Gazetteer of the Useful, the Curious, and the Arcane.
And this Saturday, August 7 2010 from noon until 2pm he will be speaking at the Pittock Mansion (3229 NW Pittock Drive).
His presentation, however, will be about the making of his newer book, Eating It Up in Eden: The Oregon Century Farm & Ranch Cookbook, and how the path of Oregon’s foodways has changed over the past 150 years. I have not yet read this book, but it sounds intriguing!
