“Drinking Buttermilk” is a humorous yet journalistic account of the fall of buttermilk as a beverage. The book traces a complicated history from the days when buttermilk could be found on the finest restaurant menus and in a few all-you-can-drink “bars,” to the present day, where it survives mostly as a folksy memory and marketing gimmick.
