The Best Cook in the World: Tales from My Momma’s Southern Table
You all had been telling me to listen to Rick Bragg read his own work for years, and I finally did last summer. Now, I get it: My Southern Journey was the best thing I've listened to in a good long while, and maybe, ever—which I did NOT expect from an essay collection. In it, he covered a lot of ground, including his mama's cornbread and southern cuisine. Here is his latest collection, a tribute to the south and his family in the form of stories and recipes. Bragg's writing is wistful, funny, and poignant. SO GOOD. Add the Audible whispersync narration to this ebook collection to listen to him read this part cookbook, part memoir.
A New York Times bestseller
Part cookbook, part memoir, The Best Cook in the World is Pulitzer Prize-winner Rick Bragg’s loving tribute to the South, his family and, especially, to his extraordinary mother. Here are irresistible stories and recipes from across generations. They come, skillet by skillet, from Bragg’s ancestors, from feasts and near famine, from funerals and celebrations, and from a thousand tales of family lore as rich and as sumptuous as the dishes they inspired. Deeply personal and unfailingly mouthwatering, The Best Cook in the World is a book to be savored.
