Those familiar with Joanne Stuttgen’s book "Cafe Wisconsin" will be pleased to know that her newest book, "Cafe Indiana", was just published this past week. Those of you who aren’t and just like good Hoosier home-style cooking, will be delighted with the finds she has unearthed in this collection. As a lifelong Hoosier I knew nothing of her other works and just discovered this one last night at a signing she had at the local Monrovia, IN, Festival. In the book she features 64 small-town cafes and gives brief synopses of over 100 more. Her standards are high, and I wouldn’t hesitate to eat at any cafe that made the cut. As a matter of fact I have eaten at several. I’ve managed about 75 pages of this 286 page tome; and it’s easy reading, entertaining and informative. Highly recommended.
