There is a lot of information on the culinary traditions of Lent In the pages of historic newspapers. They serve as the basis for a our series on food and the Lenten season. We share our findings in a paraphrased format when necessary to make them legible and we share illustrative direct quotes as often as possible. In 1941 Food Writer Arden H. Duane described Lent in the pages of the Atlanta Daily World as the “betwixt and between” season been Winter and Spring when observant Christians eat healthy meatless meals without poultry, pork, or beef.
