Wine & Sign: Eric Dusenbery

by Darlyn Finch Kuhn on June 22, 2015

Join Bookmark It for another exciting month of Wine & Sign Fridays! Throughout the month of June, they’ve invited Florida authors for signings and sippings to help you get inspired to explore and discover the great state of Florida.

Eric Dusenbery, author and photographer behind Florida Soup: Putting History On the Table, features experiences alongside poignant portraits of food producers in Florida. The collection offers a rich harvest of storytellers, from a tobacco-spitting blue crab fisherman to a rancher who reminisces about Depression-era farming, woven into a compelling look at historic cooking habits, food production and recipes that defined the family and community in rural and small-town Florida. Eric writes, “Our state is unique in its food consumption and production practices both from a historical perspective and present-day realities. Florida has a rich harvest of storytellers from a tobacco-spitting blue crab fisherman who recounts commercial fishing practices of yesteryear to a rancher who reminisces about Depression-era farming and a few other surprising tales. This is a project on Florida’s love affair with food and storytelling.”
