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.

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 their 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.
