"Hometown Appetites: She Served Up Americana (With a Side Dish of Quirk)"

Clementine Paddleford wrote, "We all have home-town appetites.  Every other person is a bundle of longing for the simplicities of good taste once enjoyed on the farm or in the home town they left behind."

Benjamin Schmerler of the New York Post wrote, "If the food writer Clementine Paddleford were alive today, she would have at least two Food Network shows (one devoted to cooking, a second to travel), a weekly newspaper column, a cookbook series and, of course, a blog.  Or so it is easy to imagine by reading Kelly Alexander and Cynthia Harris's smartly drawn, surprisingly uplifting biography 'Hometown Appetites.'"

Schmerler continues, "Thankfully, the authors share Paddleford's eye for a good story, deftly documenting their subject's well-deserved contributions to food journalism, but balancing them with biographical color."
