A New York Times Bestselling Author

From the author of All Over but the Shoutin’ comes a delectable, rollicking food memoir, cookbook, and loving tribute to a region, a vanishing history, a family, and, especially, to his mother. Through seventy-four mouthwatering family recipes for classic southern dishes passed down through generations, Bragg preserves his heritage by telling the stories that framed his mother’s cooking and education from childhood into old age. Because a recipe, writes Bragg, is a story like anything else.
