A collection of beloved comfort foodrecipes from the legendary Shenandoah Valley restaurant, Mrs. Rowe's.
In 1947, single mother Mildred Rowe started a small restaurant in the foothills of Appalachia. Today, her restaurant serves half a million locals and visitors a year, making it the most popular reason to stop over in Staunton, Virginia. MRS. ROWE'S RESTAURANT COOKBOOK tells the story of this Shenandoah Valley institution and collects the best of Mrs. Rowe's cherished home-style recipes--timeless American comfort food like spoon bread, fried chicken, and cherry pie. Illustrated with beautiful vintage photographs, this nostalgic tribute is guaranteed to fill hearts and bellies with a hankering for a real home-cooked meal.
