Staff Reviews


Eva is a culinary savant. Even at the age of 10, her bedroom closet-grown chiles were a closely guarded secret ingredient. Kitchens of the Great Midwest explores her creative, funny, delicious, and poignant experiences as she grows into her own as a master chef. You will definitely be hungry for seconds after reading it!

“In the story of Midwestern chef savant Eva Thorvald and the people -- and foods -- that touch her life, Stradal has created a picture of the American foodie revolution of the past 25 years and of its intersections with class, economics, family, and culture. Along with irresistible characters and stories, this is a novel about the potential that food and cooking offer for joy and empowerment, for snobbery and shame, and for identity and reinvention. Beautifully structured and affectionately and hilariously written, this is a novel that -- like Thorvald's exclusive pop-up supper club -- everyone is going to be talking about!”
