THE BEST COOK IN THE WORLD, Tales from My Momma's Table
by: Rick Bragg
You will enjoy meeting Margaret Bragg, who 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 corn bread --"about 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the mysteries of your oven". Her notion of farm-to-table is a flatbed truck. Many of her recipes pre-date the Civil War, handed down skillet by skillet, from one generation of Braggs to the next. In this New York Times Bestseller, 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.
Bring us your stories about what you learned from your Momma.or what you wish you had learned!
