From beloved Southern author, Rick Bragg, comes a rollicking regional tribue that is part memoir, part cookbook, and all heart. Rick Bragg will be joining us to share the stories of the seventy-four mouthwatering Bragg family recipes that are included. As he writes, "A recipe is a story like anything else."
QRB Floor Manager, Helley, loved this book: "This is the funniest cookbook in the world! It is packed with old-fashioned Southern recipes, and Bragg's brilliant storytelling and old black-and-white photographs bring his relatives to life. From lost cows to dead hogs to giant turtles, his stories feature grandparents and great-grandparents, aunts and uncles. But most of all, his mother's voice comes through loud and clear. More than anything, you are taken with the back-and-forth between Bragg and his down to earth, matter of fact, shy but fiesty mother. And I recommend the pecan.”
