Overview

In this mouth-watering collection, Amy Rogers has created a culinary portrait of her part of the South. This is no ordinary cookbook, though it boasts plenty of old-fashioned recipes from the Carolina mountains to the Lowcountry. Hungry for Home showcases the best of traditional Southern cooking and storytelling, along with recipes brought here from around the world. Some of the Carolinas' most beloved writers are contributors. Josephine Humphreys describes how to catch and cook blue crabs. Jill McCorkle shares a recipe for fried apple pies, and Lee Smith acquaints us with "Lady Food." Even former Carolinian James Taylor passes along his recipe for baked beans. Rogers, an accomplished journalist, profiles in her revealing essays some of the regions' best cooks. She introduces us to farm families, immigrants, and new Southerners -- everyday people who add flavor and variety to life in the Carolinas. What's more, dozens of these home cooks share recipes and vignettes written in their own words. Their stories are humorous, poignant, sometimes surprising, and always memorable.
