Overview

It is no small task to write a cookbook and travel guide that captures the range of dining opportunities available to 11 million Pennsylvanians in 66 counties.

Debbie Nunley and Karen Jane Elliott researched nearly 900 restaurants and dined at about 250 of them before selecting the 116 included here. They focused on restaurants of significant historical interest. Some of these are inns, taverns, and roadside hostelries that have been in business for many years at the same site. Others—former schoolhouses, barns, and train stations among them—have been converted from other uses but still retain their original flavor.

The restaurants are grouped by theme—those located on the waterfront, those that were stops on the Underground Railroad, those frequented by famous people, and those haunted by a ghostly presence, to name a few. People in eastern Pennsylvania might enjoy The Garden Restaurant in Philadelphia or The Jefferson House Restaurant in Norristown, where Joe DiMaggio was reunited with a chef he'd met 35 years earlier. Those in central Pennsylvania might like to visit Alfred's Victorian in Middletown or Duffy's Tavern in Boalsburg, the home of Memorial Day. Those in the west will like The Stone House in Farmington and Penn Brewery in Pittsburgh.

<i>A Taste of Pennsylvania History</i> includes two or three recipes from each restaurant, so readers can reproduce their favorite dishes. There is something here to suit everyone, whether their tastes run to haute cuisine or simple country fare.

Meet the Author

Debbie Nunley is a native of Rolla, Missouri, who grew up in St. Albans, West Virginia. She earned her B.A. from Marshall University in West Virginia and her M.Ed. from the University of Pittsburgh. In addition to writing, Debbie currently teaches fourth-, fifth-, and sixth-grade math at Pennsylvania Learners On-line, a cyber charter school. She lives with her husband and daughter in Powell, Ohio.

Debbie Nunley and Karen Jane Elliott began collaborating on historic restaurant guides/cookbooks in 1999. The two met through their children’s school activities and soon discovered they shared a passion for unique dining. After establishing a monthly diners’ club that appealed to their sense of adventure and love of history, the two turned their attention to writing about their finds and published their first book, <i>A Taste of Pennsylvania History</i>. It was such a success that they quickly looked to neighboring Ohio for inspiration. The following year, they published <i>A Taste of Ohio History</i>. Their third book, <i>A Taste of Virginia History</i>, was encouraged by their North Carolina-based publisher, which was eager to test a market closer to home. In 2005, Nunley and Elliott collaborated again to publish <i>A Taste of Maryland History</i>.
