Overview

Ever since hearing a restaurateur describe himself as a “keeper of the history,” authors Debbie Nunley and Karen Jane Elliott have been on a quest to find other kindred spirits who share their passion for excellent dining and historic preservation.

Tradition-rich Maryland provided them many opportunities to visit restaurants where the scent of yesteryear lingers in the air. At the Reynolds Tavern and Tea Room in Annapolis, they ate in a structure formerly known as The Beaver and Lac’d Hat, where customers could take a meal, play cards, stable their horses, and make purchases ranging from hats to dry goods to theater tickets. While visiting The Milton Inn in Sparks, they sampled desserts in a former school boasting an infamous graduate—John Wilkes Booth. At Gabriel’s Inn in Ijamsville, Debbie enjoyed a French Provincial feast near where residents once witnessed America’s first railroad trip—four rail cars pulled by horses between Baltimore and Frederick. Inside John Hagan’s Tavern in Braddock Heights, Karen dined sumptuously at the place locals once came to “fight chickens, drink bad whiskey, and black each other’s eyes,” in the words of one long-ago servant.

Nunley and Elliott have won a loyal following for their deft touch in describing the architecture, décor, cuisine, and ambiance at the many establishments they visit. <i>A Taste of Maryland History</i> covers 90 restaurants and includes 200 recipes adapted for home use, from local standards like Crab Cakes and Seafood Imperial to surprises like Hibiscus Tea Sorbet and Pot Pie of Wild Mushrooms. It compiles the best of what Maryland has to offer.

Meet the Author

A native of Great Britain, Karen Jane Elliott is a graduate of Chelsea College at the University of London. She has lived in the United States since 1995, when she moved with her husband to Seattle, Washington. Karen has enjoyed a number of entrepreneurial positions ranging from computer consultant to aerobics-wear designer. She lives in Wexford, Pennsylvania, with her husband and two children.

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>.
