In my constant work in cookbook discovering, I always keep an eye out for Southern cooks and authors. I spent some happy years in Nashville in the nineties and have been under the spell of Southern food ever since.
I found Sara Foster and Foster's Market a couple of years back in my internet and library searches. As a dedicated farm market consumer, I was especially attracted to the fresh aspect of this cookbook published in 2005.
(Foster's Market has two locations in Durham and Chapel Hill, NC.)
