“As reassuring as a big bowl of buttery mashed potatoes…a delicious read.”
Library Journal
 
What and how do American families really eat? Bonny Wolf writes about the great regional and family food traditions in this country—birthday cake and dinner party food, hearty American breakfasts and Fourth of July picnic dishes.  In Talking with My Mouth Full, she writes stories about food, and also about the people who eat it.
 
Many of the delightful national treasures Wolf writes about—bundt cake, barbecue, roast chicken, fair food—are timeless.  Each chapter, whether it’s about true regional specialties like Minnesota’s wild rice, Texas’ Blue Bell ice cream or Maryland’s famous crab cakes or about family favorites like noodle pudding or Irish raisin soda bread, ends with a perfectly chosen group of recipes, tantalizing and time-tested.
 
In the tradition of Laurie Colwin’s Home Cooking, Talking with My Mouth Full is a book you will turn to over and over for wonderful food writing and recipes for comfort food, a great nosh, or the ideal covered dish to take to a potluck supper.
 
“Charming, lighthearted…refreshingly accessible.”—Publishers Weekly
“Savory collection of essays.”—Washington Post
“Delightful.”—Austin Chronicle
