Screen Doors and Sweet Tea
Recipes and Tales from a Southern Cook
by Martha Hall Foose
Gifted Chef and storyteller Martha Hall Foose invites you into her kitchen to share recipes that bring alive the landscape, people, and traditions that make southern cuisine an American favorite.
Born and raised in Mississippi, Foose cooks Southern food with a contemporary flair: Sweet Potato Soup is enhanced with coconut milk and curry powder; Blackberry Limeade gets a lift from a secret ingredient - cardamom; and her much ballyhooed Sweet Tea Pie combines two great Southern staples-- sweet tea and pie, of course-- to make one phenomenal signature dessert. The more than 150 original recipes are not only full of flavor, but also rich with local color and characters.
As the executive chef of the Viking Cooking School, teaching thousands of home cooks each year, Foose crafts recipes that are the perfect combination of delicious, creative, and accessible.
Filled with humorous and touching tales as well as useful information, Screen Doors and Sweet Tea is a must-have for the American home cook-- and a must read for for anyone who craves a return to what cooking is all about: comfort, company, and good eating.
