Lewis draws on her childhood in Freetown, Virginia, to re-create some of the simple, honest dishes she grew up on. She shows readers ways in which to get the best possible flavor from foods bought in supermarkets and farmers markets. Illustrated.
As the voice of one of the first communities of freed African Americans, Edna Lewis captures the elegance of palate of Virginia with both aplomb and grace. Her recipes reflect a genuine knowledge of, and passion for, the region; their subtleties of flavor are indicative of the sure hand of an accomplished cook. Simple directions, and deeply rooted ingredients and techniques power this important voice of the twentieth-century south, and hence, the country.
