Porterfield to Speak at AOS Program in January

Railroad dining car historian Jim Porterfield will speak about the history and recipes of America’s golden age of railroad cuisine on Jan. 15 at the Age of Steam Roundhouse in Sugarcreek.

The presentation will begin at 6 p.m. and feature slides and items on display, including menus and the five items you will likely find in a home kitchen that originated in a dining car.

Porterfield is the author of Dining By Rail: The History and Recipes of America’s Golden Age of Railroad Cuisine, which described how railroad dining practices evolved into restaurants on wheels.

The presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer session and a book signing.
