Brock Cheney explores the foodways of Mormon pioneers from their trek west to the arrival of the railroad and reveals new perspectives on the fascinating early Mormon settlement era.

Relying on original diaries, newspaper accounts, and recipe books from the 1850s, Cheney draws a vivid portrait of what Mormon pioneers ate and drank. Although others have sketched the subject before, this is the first full-length study.In lively prose that blends historical source material and modern interpretation, Plain but Wholesome presents the first explicit descriptions of the menus, food processes, and recipes of the Mormon pioneers.

While many have supposed that earlier pioneer foodways continued to be handed down through Mormon families, Cheney has confirmed traditions going back generations and covering more than a century. The book also exposes myths and cliches about pioneer piety and hardships, as Cheney examines such pioneer extravagances as fresh oysters on the half shell and pioneer trends of alcohol consumption. A perfect gift for the history buff or Dutch oven chef, Plain but Wholesome will also keep readers interested throughout and prove its place among scholars and historians.
