The Atlantic Monthly reviews The Warmest Room In The House...

This short but sweet review appears in the current issue of the Atlantic Monthly (Jan/ Feb 2008.)
"Forget heart and hearth, argues the author of this inviting study of domiciliary evolution - home is where the stove is. Tracing the American kitchen's century-long rise from lowly back room to glowing center of domestic life, Gdula scours the historical pantry, illuminating the development of food preparation, scullery technology, gastronomic design and culinary celebrity. The decade-by-decade survey he serves up is a delight, rich but restrained."
