Mark F. Sohn’s classic book, Mountain Country Cooking, was a James Beard Award nominee in 1997. In Appalachian Home Cooking, Sohn expands and improves upon his earlier work by using his extensive knowledge of cooking to uncover the romantic secrets of Appalachian food, both within and beyond the kitchen. The foods of Appalachia are the medium for the history of a creative culture and a proud people. This is the story of pigs and chickens, corn and beans, and apples and peaches as they reflect the culture that has grown from the region’s topography, climate, and soil. Sohn unfolds the ways of a table that blends Native American, Eastern European, Scotch–Irish, black, and Hispanic influences to become something new—and uniquely American. Sohn shows how food traditions in Appalachia have developed over two centuries from dinner on the grounds, church picnics, school lunches, and family reunions as he celebrates regional signatures such as dumplings, moonshine, and country ham. Food and folkways go hand in hand as he examines wild plants, cast-iron cookware, and the nature of the Appalachian homeplace. Appalachian Home Cooking celebrates mountain food at its best. In addition to a thorough discussion of Appalachian food history and culture, Sohn offers over eighty classic recipes, as well as mail-order sources, information on Appalachian food festivals, photographs, poetry, a glossary of Appalachian and cooking terms, menus for holidays and seasons, and a list of the top 100 Appalachian foods.

Part cookbook and part memoir, Southern Appalachian Farm Cooking blends staples of farm-fresh, Appalachian cuisine with stories of life on a large farm in East Tennessee, where homemade biscuits and harvest vegetables were the fruits of hard work and meager earnings. Robert G. Netherland begins with the family farm: a sprawling sixty acres of fertile, rolling hills located in the small town of Surgoinsville, Tennessee, situated between bends in the Holston River. From there, Netherland guides the reader through threshing wheat, churning butter, sharecroppers and country doctors, hunting and hog killing, and all the while sharing updated versions of his family’s recipes for authentic farm-to-table food. From biscuits to cornbread, freshly shelled beans to red-ripe tomatoes, and savory meats to the sweetest cherry pies, Southern Appalachian Farm Cooking provides the home cook with recipes and historical asides to turn any trip to the farmer’s market into a delicious family affair. In sharing his experiences, Netherland reminds us of a time when prepackaged and plastic-wrapped food didn’t line our counters and fill our cabinets, but in its place were baskets of seasonal fruit, canned vegetables, fresh baked breads, and hot-from-the-oven cobblers. Southern Appalachian Farm Cooking is more than just a nostalgic memoir of farming and food, it’s also filled with healthy, simple, everyday eats for the modern cook.

Appalachian Kentucky Cooking and More is about old fashioned food from the Mountains of Harlan County, Kentucky and more. For those who love good country cooking, this book is definitely appetizing for them. And for those who love eating off the land, this book is for them. Growing up in the heart of those beautiful mountains, we had no cookbooks. We depended on recipes being handed down from generation to generation. A pinch of this and a pinch of that is how cooking was taught. The excitement of cooking foods grown from the rich soil of those beautiful mountains, brought hungry mouths to the table, and leaving them satisfied. As my daddy always said, "You have to have something that sticks to your ribs." We learned how to make every kind of dumpling imaginable, and dipped every smidgen of bread when eating. I remember being invited to dinner in Florida after I left home and kept sitting at the table until someone asked if something was wrong. I said "I was waiting for the bread." With that three people got up and brought me a huge plate of white bread stacked up. We never had a meal without bread, mostly biscuits or cornbread, but it was new to me to be served food without bread. I learned the art of bread making, reaching out much farther from the biscuits and cornbread, to creating sour dough recipes to die for. And when you have company, everyone congregates to the kitchen. The smells bring you there, but the wonder of wonders is serving foods that will be talked about and make you want more.
