In Pursuit of Flavor: The Beloved Classic Cookbook from the Acclaimed Author of The Taste of Country Cooking by Edna Lewis and Mashama Bailey



The cooking sensibilities of Miss Lewis (as she was fondly known) were shaped early in her childhood in the farm community established by her grandfather and his friends after emancipation in Virginia. Inside, she shares personal childhood memories and recipes alongside the recipes that gained her recognition and notes on the ingredients she considered most essential to Southern cuisine. Almost two hundred recipes are spread over six chapters, beautifully illustrated and centering upon each ingredient’s source—from farmyards to bodies of water to your kitchen cupboard. Don’t miss the dessert chapter in the back for timeless Southern sweets, like Peach Cobbler and Raspberry Pie Garnished with Whipped Cream. Sure to warm your belly and your heart, Miss Lewis brings us a new classic Southern cooking handbook and heaps of quintessentially Southern charm.
