By Edna Lewis.

The 30th anniversary edition of Edna Lewis’s classic tome on Southern cooking. In The Taste of Country Cooking, Lewis shares recipes from a childhood spent in a small farming community settled by freed slaves. Working with seasonal ingredients while cultivating community, Lewis presents over 30 menus (“A Late Spring Lunch After Wild-Mushroom Picking” and “Emancipation Day Dinner” among them) full of recipes that are inspirational, timeless, and distinctly American. With a foreward by Alice Waters.
