Description
Locals go to the B.T.C. Old-Fashioned Grocery in Water Valley, Mississippi, for its Skillet Biscuits and Sausage Gravy breakfasts, made-to-order chicken salad and spicy Tex-Mex Pimiento Cheese sandwiches, and daily specials like Shrimp and Grits that are as good as momma made. The B.T.C.'s freezers are stocked with take-home Southern Yellow Squash Casseroles and its counter is piled high with sweets like Peach Fried Pies as well as seasonal produce, local milk, and freshly baked bread.
"Be the Change" has always been the store's motto, and that's just what it has done. What started as a place to meet and eat is now so much more, as the grocery has become the heart of a now-bustling country town. "The B.T.C. Old-Fashioned Grocery Cookbook" shares 120 of the store's best recipes, giving home cooks everywhere a taste of the food that brought a community together, sparking friendships, reviving traditions, and revitalizing an American Main Street.

The B.T.C. Old-Fashioned Grocery Cookbook is charming. Alexe and Dixie share, so openheartedly, the story of one little market, and by doing so give readers a chance to revel in a rural small-town revival. Hoop and Havarti Macaroni, Sweet Potato and Green Chile Casserole, Peach Icebox Pies—the recipes inspire home cooks to remember the classics they cherish and draw their loved ones around the table for good, old-fashioned conversation.”
Martha Hall Foose, author of Screen Doors and Sweet Tea and A Southerly Course
