Polly Campbell Explores City's Food History In New Book

Dec 3, 2020

From the origins of Graeter's Ice Cream and the city's famed chili (and all its varieties), to some of our most acclaimed chefs and restaurants, a new book explores the history of food in Cincinnati.

The author is a known expert on the subject: Polly Campbell, the longtime and recently retired food writer and critic for the Cincinnati Enquirer.

The book, Cincinnati Food: A History of Queen City Cuisine, offers a vast study of what we love to eat here. Whether it's a plate full of cinnamon-scented chili on spaghetti, or skillets frying up goetta, or other uniquely Cincinnati staples, Campbell's book will leave your mouth watering for a taste of home.

She joins Cincinnati Edition to talk about it.
