About Michael Krondl
Michael Krondl is a food writer, culinary historian, cooking teacher and all-around foodie.  And, oh yes, he is also an artist.  (If you’re curious about that last one see http://home.earthlink.net/~krondl.) He has written article after article on food and travel for the likes of  Condé Nast’s Traveler, Marie Claire, New York Newsday, Family Circle and Saturday Night.  And there have been lots of others.  You’ll find his name at  the end of numerous entries in the Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America and The Oxford Companion to American Food and Drink as well as the recently released The Business of Food:  Encyclopedia of the Food and Drink Industries.  Krondl is the author of Around the American Table:  Treasured Recipes and Food Traditions from the American Cookery Collections of The New York Public Library.  The long title pretty well describes the book  which is a popular account of the history of American food.  The book draws extensively on the spectacular collection of cookbooks in the stacks of  The New York Public Library for source material.  He is also the author of The Great Little Pumpkin Cookbook, a collection of some fifty recipes for those obsessed with those adorable rotund gourds (well, technically, they’re not gourds, but that’s a long story).  Krondl lives in New York.  He is currently working on a book that will enable him to travel the world and get really fat.  See my blog Sweetspot for more on that!
