Both Martha and Teresa are natives of Yazoo City, Mississippi so we're dubbing this edition of Thacker Mountain Radio "The Yazoo Show."
More on Martha's new cookbook:
"I’d drive all the way to Mississippi if Martha Hall Foose invited me to
her table. Such is the allure of her recipes and stories. Everything in
A Southerly Course and in Screen Doors and Sweet Tea
appeals to me—the authentic Southern food (which is America’s best), the
humor, the evocative photographs, and the strong sense of a place.
Cookbooks should make you happy. This one bursts with memory and cheer."
"This cookbook reads almost like a novel—I could hardly put it down! The recipes are such a wonderful reminder of the country cooking I grew up on as a little girl."
"I am continually impressed with Martha’s ability to bring new life to Southern food. Her recipes and stories transport me to my favorite place, the Southern home kitchen, sitting around the table with great food and great company."
—Donald Link, author of Real Cajun and chef-owner of Cochon and Herbsaint
"This book makes me want to call everyone in my family and cook a grand Southern feast. Martha is a sweetheart and an inspiration. Buy this book and call your family over for dinner."
—Sean Brock, chef-owner of McCrady’s
"You know Martha—she’s your cousin, your aunt, your childhood friend. In her new book, she comes into your life like a cool and gracious Southern breeze and makes you feel as if she’s always been there as she shares recipes and tales of our beloved homeland."
—Christy Jordan, author of Southern Plate
Teresa's book, Buryin' Daddy: Putting My Lebanese, Catholic, Southern Baptist Childhood to Rest is a book on how one woman embraced her roots and reconciled with her family and Dixie.
