Synopsis: The foods of Native California Books such as Seaweed, Salmon, and Manzanita Cider give invaluable insight into how Native American people created food from what flourished around them: food that is simple, abundant and, most of all, flavorful food that is both life-giving and a way of life. Richard Hetzler, Executive Chef, Mitsitam Cafe, National Museum of the American Indian, Smithsonian Institution Starting with fish and then moving on through shellfish, meat, vegetables, flowers, berries, nuts, and acorns, Seaweed, Salmon, and Manzanita Cider is a tour of the most authentically local food there is: Native American cuisine, in this case from the bountiful shores and slopes of California. Filled with photographs, essays, reminiscences, and recipes, this book offers an overview of the foods of Native California along with delicious details about the dishes and their preparation: seafood stew cooked on the beach, agave hearts roasted underground, cakes made from the tiny seeds of the prolific red maids flower. Many of the recipes in Seaweed, Salmon, and Manzanita Cider appear in print for the first time here, offering glimpses of the past as well as straightforward information on the preparation of simple and sumptuous foods. Dubin and Tolley write in their introduction that the recipes in this book are transcriptions from tribal and personal memory and, as such, fragments of living culture. Part culinary study, part history and cultural chronicle, this book is a fascinating presentation of a venerable American food cuisine.

About the Author: Margaret Dubin is managing editor of News from Native California, author of Native America Collected: The Culture of an Art World (University of New Mexico Press, 2001) and editor of The Dirt Is Red Here (Heyday Books, 2002). She lives in Oakland with her husband and two sons. Sara-Larus Tolley has a Ph.D. in anthropology. She has been working for California tribes not recognized by the government for a decade, has written a book published by Oklahoma Press on the subject, and, while keeping the issues of concern to Native peoples near and dear to her heart, she is currently studying to be a midwife.
