What others are saying:
“We love this book! When I showed it to my brother, Bob, and my mom, and they also thought it was great. Our employees at Archie’s Waeside are ordering it too, not just because of Archie's, but because a lot of them grew up throughout the state. I put “A Culinary History of Iowa” on my Facebook page and the Archie's Waeside Facebook page, so relatives and customers are very excited. It’s a wonderful, historical book for all of us who love Iowa. This book is also a great gift idea for our children, other relatives, and friends. What a way to relive our memories of our childhood!”
