Southern Foodways Alliance Community Cookbook
A small group of SFA writers and cooks has set about putting together a community cookbook of recipes culled from our esteemed membership and oral history subjects.
We aim to celebrate grandmothers and artisans, farmers and bartenders, authors and chefs. We are still in the gathering-and-writing stages, but for a glimpse of the book’s bright future, consider these pointed words, penned by our committee at the book’s conception.
“Think of an old spiral-bound cookbook of the sort that was popular before the Junior League thought it would make a mint on coffee table style books. That’s what we’re aiming for.”
The worker bees include Sara Roahen and John T. Edge as wranglers and editors; Sheri Castle as recipe tester; and Tim Davis, April McGreger and Angie Mosier as recipe gatherers and writers – with help from Fred Sauceman. The University of Georgia Press is our publisher. The SFA Community Cookbook is on store bookshelves now. Visit your independent bookseller and buy a copy today!
