Bird’s Eye View of Clementine Paddleford

Clementine Paddleford could not jump on the bandwagon of radio and television because she had a bout with throat cancer in 1931.

In 1953, Time magazine declared her the “best known food writer in the United States.”

Paddleford’s food writing career took off when she was hired at Food Market Report for The New York Herald Tribune in 1936.  Along with this job came a side job, food writing for This Week magazine, a Sunday Supplement in all major cities newspapers.

This Week magazine is much like Parade is today.

In 1948, Paddleford and her editor at This Week magazine, William I. Nichols, came up with a plan.  Paddleford would travel across the United States and collect recipes from the best cooks in the country.  Her weekly series was called “How America Eats.”

In 1960, Paddleford took the best of the recipes that she collected between 1948 and 1960 and wrote a book How America Eats published by Charles Scribner’s & Sons.

This biography/cookbook by Kelly Alexander and Cynthia Harris is a must read for those who love an upbeat biography with a bright side to life and for those who love to eat wholesome comfort food.

Hometown Appetites can be purchased online at Amazon and at your local bookstore.  If your bookstore does not have the book in stock, ask them to order a copy for you.
