‘Brandywine Book of Food’ Profiles Region’s Culinary Terroir

November 16, 2009

LANDENBERG, Pa., Nov. 16 /PRNewswire/ — The Brandywine Book of Food — a colorful, coffee-table size volume that chronicles the region’s culinary terroir with 75 recipes, more than 180 color photos and personal stories of chefs, winemakers and farmers — is now on sale throughout the region and nationally via direct shipping.

The landmark book is the work of Roger Morris, a well-known international writer on wine, food and travel, and Cathleen Ryan, an internationally trained pastry chef, with photos by Ella Morris, former fashion executive and now magazine photographer, painter and art gallery manager.

“Our goals for the book are primarily to provide recipes showcasing the prowess of chefs of the Brandywine Region,” Morris says, “but we wanted to do this within the context of culinary terroir, integrating the area’s rich history with the stories of the people who grow produce, create artisan foods, make wines and create dishes.”

The Brandywine Region borders the river of the same name that flows through Pennsylvania and Delaware into the Delaware Bay southwest of Philadelphia. It is known for its beautiful scenery, historic water mills, country estates such as Winterthur and Longwood Gardens, thoroughbred horse farms, America’s largest mushroom-growing region, a burgeoning wine industry, and as a destination weekend vacation retreat full of small inns and B&Bs.
