#120. CULINARY HISTORY of a PACIFIC NORTHWEST TOWN - BELLEVUE, WASHINGTON
Published 2007 by the Eastside Heritage Center 425.450.1049
Suzanne Knauss
Just published, this new book describes history as a culinary experience from 1869 to the present. Topics include strawberry cultivation and early community life; the mid-century suburban experience when soda fountains were popular and communities raised money for good causes with costume ball banquets and pancake breakfasts; the advent of the drive-in and increasing diversification and sophistication of food tastes; urbanization, globalization and the resulting return to local farmers markets; and food as a cultural bridge.
  Bellevue, Washington’s chronological timeline reflects culinary trends occurring throughout America, but the difference is in the details of Bellevue’s story. Bellevue had soda fountains and ice cream parlors, as did other small towns in the 1930s and 1940s, but how did Bellevue, the town, profit from its citizens enjoying Green River sodas and sundaes? Who made the candies and baked the cakes for celebrations, and how did those enterprises shape Bellevue? What do crabapples have to do with the Bellevue Arts Museum and the Kandy Kane Kafe with the Overlake Hospital? How did a young girl’s dream to learn the culinary arts bring Julia Child into Bellevue’s kitchens? What do these stories reveal about the community?
  It includes dozens of historical photographs, heritage and contemporary recipes, original art by Northwest artist Julie Creighton and essays by Northwest historian Charles P. LeWarne and food historian Jacqueline Williams.
