Appalachian Appetite: Recipes from the Heart of America

In the introduction to Appalachian Appetite, Nathalie Dupree writes, "It is time. At long last, Appalachian food is emerging vibrantly from a long-time cocoon of stereotypes. With unique culinary roots deeply connected to its geography, agriculture, and traditions, it shows a creativity that ensues from the basic needs of survival combined with the independence and solidness of a mountain people surrounded with peaks and valleys."

Twenty-eight local chefs contributed to this beautiful collection of recipes that the author calls "a blending together of old ingredients and new techniques. ... From Mississippi to Maine, innovation and reverence for what is close at hand is the continuum for both cook and connoiseur."
