Author Visit with Ron Koltnow


"Against all challengers, Barberton proudly defends its title as "Fried Chicken Capital of the World." Founded by industrialist Ohio Columbus Barber, the city drew workers from around the globe, especially eastern Europe. Immigrants brought their traditions and their cuisine. In time, Barberton became home to five Serbian fried chicken restaurants, all within a two-mile radius." 

Join author, Ron Koltnow as he talks Barberton Chicken and his book, Barberton Fried Chicken: An Ohio Original. Copies of the book will be available for purchase, just in time for holiday gift giving.
