Celebrating Southern Appalachian food : recipes & stories from mountain kitchens

Casada, Jim (author.). Pressley, Tipper, (author.).

Summary: "Southern Appalachia has a rich culinary tradition. Generations of "passed down" recipes offer glimpses into a culture that has long been defined, in considerable measure, by its food. Take a journey of pure delight through this highland homeland with stories of celebrations, Sunday dinners and ordinary suppers. The narrative material and scores of recipes offered share a deep love of place and a devotion to this distinctive cuisine. The end result is a tempting invitation, in the vernacular of the region, to "pull up a chair and take nourishment." Authors Jim Casada and Tipper Pressley, both natives of the region, are seasoned veterans in sharing the culinary delights of the southern highlands" --
