Virginia cook Edna Lewis and her protégé (since 1988), Alabama-native Scott Peacock, team up to provide plenty of authentic recipes for traditional Southern dishes, as well as a slew of anecdotes and stories. From homemade baking powder to the glories of pimento cheese, these two talents share a deep knowledge of Southern food that sweeps across many states. Classic recipes, such as Cornbread-Pecan Dressing, Creamy Grits, and Ham Steak with Red-Eye Gravy are here, as well as more modern entries like Silken Turnip Soup and Chanterelles on Toast. Over 200 hundred recipes are provided, along with beautiful, full-color photographs. Edna Lewis is also the author of the classic TASTE OF COUNTRY COOKING.
