Nancie McDermott and Tema Flanagan discuss their Savor the South books Fruit and Corn at The Root Cellar Fri 3/17, 12pm Nancie McDermott and Tema Flanagan discuss their Savor the South books Fruit and Corn at The Root Cellar, with samples Come join us at the Root Cellar to celebrate the publication of two new Savor the South books from UNC Press-- Fruit by Nanci McDermott and Corn by Tema Flanagan! We'll have books for sale and samples from each cookbook to savor. Fruit collects a dozen of the South’s bountiful locally sourced fruits in a cook’s basket of fifty-four luscious dishes, savory and sweet. Demand for these edible jewels is growing among those keen to feast on the South’s natural pleasures, whether gathered in the wild or cultivated with care. Indigenous fruits here include blackberries, mayhaws, muscadine and scuppernong grapes, pawpaws, persimmons, and strawberries. From old-school Grape Hull Pie to Mayhaw Jelly–Glazed Shrimp, McDermott’s recipes for these less common fruits are of remarkable interest--and incredibly tasty. Nancie McDermott is a North Carolina native, cooking teacher, and author of thirteen cookbooks, including Southern Cakes: Sweet and Irresistible Recipes for Everyday Celebrations. Without corn, Tema Flanagan writes, the South would cease to taste like the South. Her treasury of fifty-one recipes demonstrates deliciously just how important the remarkable Zea mays is to southern culture and cuisine. Flanagan also surveys corn’s culinary history--its place in Native American culture, its traditional role on the southerner’s table, and the new and exciting ways it is enjoyed in southern kitchens today. Appreciating how this oversized grass is capable of providing sustenance in an astonishing array of forms, Flanagan organizes the book to reflect corn’s versatility. Tema Flanagan is a farmer at The Farm at Windy Hill, a sustainable production and teaching farm in Alabama. She cowrote, with Sara Foster, Sara Foster’s Southern Kitchen.
