Nostaglia is spreading

October 5, 2022

People are feeling the nostalgia and spreading the news about the importance of strengthening communities through great meals and wine.

Laurel Lather’s book, The Nostalgic Feast is getting a lot of attention and after all of the hard work put into the book, it is great to see this well-deserved recognition.

In her interview with South Dakota Public Broadcaster, Laurel was called one of the “great visionaries” of the continually blossoming restaurant scene in the city of Sioux Falls. Next came television with Dakota News, TV taking notice of her book and culinary journey.

The Old Courthouse Museum in Sioux Falls, ND hosted Laurel as part of their local author bookfair. She signed copies of her book and was part of the celebration of stories, recipes, and history about the local food and wine culture in South Dakota.

And on the shelves…

I have said it before, and when it comes to this book, it truly bears repeating: A good book can travel the world and leave footprints of inspiration, joy and lasting memories.
