Author and Food Historian William Woys Weaver at Radnor Library

Celebrated food historian and cookbook writer William Woys Weaver delves deeply into the history of Pennsylvania Dutch Cuisine to sort fact from fiction in his new book, As American as Shoofly Pie: The Foodlore and Fakelore of Pennsylvania Dutch Cuisine (2013). The author will visit Radnor Library on Tuesday, October 22 at 7:00pm.


Weaver, whose background is Mennonite, delivers detailed and affectionate chapters that present a rich and diverse portrait of a living culinary practice and follows it forward as New Dutch Cuisine continues to evolve.

weaverRadnor Historical Society is the Library’s co-sponsor for this author event. Shoofly Pie will be served. Books will be available for purchase. Sounds like a fun time! Oh, and it’s educational, too. 😉

See you at the Library,
