Newspaper Columnist and Author Philip Potempa’s fourth published cookbook Back From the Farm: Family Recipes and Memories of a Lifetime (2019 Pediment Press $34.95) releases in October 2019, written with the help of actress Florence Henderson of TV’s The Brady Bunch before her passing in November 2016.
Potempa’s latest cookbook features more than 500 pages showcasing the kitchen recipes and know-how of himself as well as his famous friends and also the everyday neighbors his readers have gotten to know during the past two decades. Bigger and brimming with even more fun and surprises on every page, it highlights more than 340 irresistible recipes paired with fascinating stories and 325 rare color and vintage black-and-white photos from the 1930s to today, most never-before-published. The new cookbook captures all of his published “From the Farm” newspaper columns from April 2010 through November 2015 as distributed by Lee Media and originally published in The Times of Northwest Indiana.
In all four of his beautiful hardcover keepsake published cookbooks, each page chronicles interviews, recipes and memories from personal and professional experiences. Throughout the years Potempa has interviewed and swapped recipes and stories with Julia Child, Martha Stewart, President Jimmy Carter, Oprah Winfrey and other favorite luminaries.
Potempa’s columns were a favorite feature fixture in The Times of Northwest Indiana for two decades. Now, his weekly “From the Farm” column and entertainment columns and feature stories appear in his flagship newspaper The Post-Tribune, part of the Chicago Tribune Media Chain of newspapers as well as found at www.ChicagoTribune.com. He is also an adjunct instructor in communications at both Valparaiso University and Purdue University Northwest and divides his time between his family’s farm in Northwest Indiana and his home in Chicago.
