A joyful, practical celebration of the truth that some of life's sweetest memories are created around Grandmother's table.
When times were lean, Southern grandmothers gave what they had―fresh vegetables or fruit from their land, eggs and dairy from their chickens and cows, or meat from their husbands' hunt. Or they prepared food and shared it by offering it to those in need or by hosting folks in their homes. So much of what they knew and taught us about love and friendship started in their Southern kitchens.
"At My Grandmother's Table" pays homage to those memories with the flavors that will take readers right back to her table with dishes such as:
- Memaw's Strawberry Salad
- Christmas Sweet Potato Pudding
- Banana Butterscotch Bread
- Scripture Cake
- Shoofly Pie
- Old Fashioned Cream Pie
Just as Faye Porter's "At My Grandmother's Knee "celebrated Grandmother's kitchen and the sweet memories that were created in it, this new collection of stories and recipes also comes from some of the luckiest people around―the grandchildren of Southern ladies who knew how to cook.
