A Southerly Course by Martha Hall Foose – Cookbook Corner -



My cookbook corner has gained one of the brightest additions of the year, A Southerly Course by Martha Hall Foose and it is what it states, “recipes and stories from close to home.” Home for Foose is Mississippi; she grew up in the Mississippi Delta and now makes her home in Tchula, Mississippi – on the family farm.

Foose’s earlier cookbook, a James Beard Award winner Screen Doors & Sweet Tea sits prominently on my cookbook shelf, full of anecdotes of life growing up in the south, in Mississippi. Foose is a great story teller as well as a talented cook. When reading both of her cookbooks, I’m transported to a circa 1950 Mississippi porch on a warm summer day, sipping a sweet tea, pie in the window cooling waiting for Big Daddy Pollitt kind of moment.

I saw this book at Barnes and Noble when I was at the mall last week. Lovely cookbook. It was between paydays. May go and get it this weekend. I cant help it. I need another cookbook like I need a hole in my head!
