Taste Of Country Cooking

Seasonality and abundance amid want.



First published nearly 40 years ago, Edna Lewis' seminal book celebrates the art of feeding oneself and one's family with the bounty of the seasons. As much a celebration of hard work and community as it is food, Lewis shares her recollections of growing up and eating in the small Virginia town in which she was raised, one settled by freed slaves and rooted in seasonality and the imaginative make-dos that flourish with scarcity. Hardcover, 304 pages.
