Blue Bicycle Books Charleston Author Series Luncheon with Rick Bragg "The Best Cook in the World"
From the best-selling author of "All Over but the Shoutin" a delectable, rollicking food memoir, cookbook, and loving tribute to a region, a vanishing history, a family, and, especially, to his mother. Special guest David DiBenedetto, senior vice president and editor in chief of Garden & Gun will be "in conversation" with Bragg. Halls Chefs will prepare a luncheon inspired by the book.

Margaret Bragg does not own a single cookbook. She measures in "dabs" and "smidgens" and "tads" and "you know, hon, just some." She cannot be pinned down on how long to bake cornbread ("about 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the mysteries of your oven"). Her notion of farm-to-table is a flatbed truck. But she can tell you the secrets to perfect mashed potatoes, corn pudding, redeye gravy, pinto beans and hambone, stewed cabbage, short ribs, chicken and dressing, biscuits and butter rolls.

The irresistible stories in this audiobook are of long memory -- many of them pre-date the Civil War, handed down skillet by skillet, from one generation of Braggs to the next. In "The Best Cook in the World," Rick Bragg finally preserves his heritage by telling the stories that framed his mother's cooking and education, from childhood into old age. Because good food always has a good story, and a recipe, writes Bragg, is a story like anything else.

Wonderful, rollicking, poignant, sometimes hilarious tales about how generations of Braggs extended family survived from one meal to the next.
USA Today (four stars)

This book is a tribute, a monument, to his mother and her people, captured here in solid recipes for good food... All the stories in this book... gleam with a special luster; they've been polished by time, and no one is meant to get hung up on the details."
The Wall Street Journal

"A beautifully written memoir... For readers who crave soul with their recipes, this is a fitting tribute to foodways that are fast escaping."
Library Journal (starred review)
