This mouth-watering collection of more than 200 recipes showcases the best of traditional Southern cooking and storytelling. This is no ordinary cookbook, though it boasts plenty of old-fashioned recipes for cakes, pies, casseroles, and stews. Editor Army Rogers invited more than 100 contributors to tell their favorite stories about food. Included with everyday folk are well-known writers such as Josephine Humphreys, Jill McCorkle, and Lee Smith. There are even offerings from singer-songwriters James Taylor and Emmylou Harris. Each recipe is accompanied by a story telling where the dish came from a firsthand account of how it, became part of a family tradition, or a profile of the cook who submitted it. The stories are humorous poignant, sometimes surprising and always memorable.
