Victuals

When I first received this book I was immediately impressed. The storytelling and photography really blew me away. This is a book I could really spend some time enjoying. I flipped through the book to find out who was the author.
Ronni Lundy is a founder of the Southern Foodways Alliance so I immediately knew this was going to be a book I could use. I have alot of respect for the things that the Alliance is doing.
The book focuses on the food of the Appalachians. Kentucky, Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee, Georgia and the Carolinas.
There is alot of creative home cooking in this book and probably alot of dishes the most people will never have heard of.
The book is divided into eight chapters
Roots and seeds
Salt of the earth
Corn
Beans
Apple-achia
Preserving
Husbandry
Appalachian spring
I see myself really getting some use out of this book and would absolutely recommend it to anyone looking for new dishes to try.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the blogging for books program.
