What is Arkansas food? After more than a decade of intense research, author Kat Robinson has the answers. The brand new culinary lexicon from Tonti Press showcases the foods grown, created in and celebrated by Arkansas in lush, full-color detail. Robinson’s efforts to document what’s great on the state’s plate has resulted in this definitive tome, starting with apple butter and continuing through to zucchini bread, with hundreds of listings that denote the staples found in kitchens, restaurants and festivals within Arkansas’s borders. Kat Robinson’s program at ASC will culminate with pie from the Colonial Steakhouse, a Pine Bluff staple and featured restaurant in Kat’s food stories.
