What a beautifully put together book this is. Having lived in the Appalachia area near Asheville, NC, I could so relate to this book and its message of simple cooking and simple lifestyles. The photographs of the scenery were stunning, the writing was superb and told great stories, and the recipes were simple and mindfully, respectfully presented. These simple foods showcase the region as well as the work ethic of the region. Not a cook
book to miss. Most of the recipes are easy to prepare and represent the culture and wonder of this beautiful mountain region.
