Fascinating stories and recipes from the Deep South - and food as a pathway to understanding each other. Beautiful and BIG (500+ pages)!

Cookbook-award winner Vivian Howard shares her North Carolina region’s food specialties in an innovative cookbook that’s part information and recipes, part memoir.

I chuckled that I liked the same recipes that another library user did as they’d turned back the same few pages I would have marked. It’s probably not a cookbook Minnesotans would cook from much, but as a ‘foodie’ it was intriguing to see her cooking evolution from the down-home classics to the adaptations she and her husband serve in their restaurants. And, her chapter organization by food ingredient—blueberries, sweet potatoes, sausage, etc—made good reading. Who knew beets, rutabagas and turnips were NC specialties!

I loved reading this book even tho' i'm not fond of some of the ingredients. Highly recommend it if you enjoy cookbooks with great recipes and the stories behind them. Vivian has a warm amusing way of writing that entertains while you learn about a very different way of life than California.

I'm a big fan of " It's a Chef's Life" It's a down to earth farm to table show. The Cookbook was nice to read but i was hoping for something a bit more simplistic.
