A Desert Feast: Celebrating Tucson's Culinary Heritage
By Carolyn Niethhammer
Drawing on thousands of years of foodways, Tucson cuisine blends the influences of Indigenous, Mexican, mission-era Mediterranean, and ranch-style cowboy food traditions. This book offers a food pilgrimage, where stories and recipes demonstrate why the desert city of Tucson became America's first UNESCO City of Gastronomy. Includes the origin story of Native Seeds/SEARCH.
