Christopher Corbett, English, in Style Magazine

Published: Aug 22, 2011

“‘The Amiable Baltimoreans’ was published in 1951—just 60 years ago—and yet the city contained within it is as remote from our time as Carthage, and as alluring as the Seven Cities of Cibola,” writes Christopher Corbett, professor of the practice of English, in his latest essay for Style magazine.

“This little book does not merely make me wonder where the amiable Baltimoreans have gone and if there are any about now,” he continues. “It makes me long for the tables they set, and lament that it is no longer possible to savor such cuisine.”

Appetite for the Past,” Corbett’s lament that certain Baltimore delicacies have been lost to downtown chain restaurants, was published in the September-October issue of the magazine.
