Publisher Comments:

The first volume in what will be an annual collection, Cornbread Nation gathers the best of recent Southern food writing. In fifty-one entries--original features and selections previously published in magazines and journals--contributors celebrate the people, places, traditions, and tastes of the American South.

In these pages, Nikki Giovanni expresses her admiration for the legendary Edna Lewis, James Villas remembers his friend Craig Claiborne, Rick Bragg thinks back on Thanksgivings at home, Robert Morgan describes the rituals of canning time, and Fred Chappell offers a contrarian's view of iced tea. "Collectively," writes John Egerton, these pieces "buttress our conviction that nothing else the South has to offer to the nation and the world--with the possible exception of its music--is more eternally satisfying, heartwarming, reconciling, and memorable than its food." With the publication of Cornbread Nation, we acknowledge with gratitude the abiding centrality of food in the ongoing life of the South.

Contributors include: Colman Andrews, Jim Auchmutey, Roy Blount Jr., Gene Bourg, Rick Bragg, Fred Chappell, Lolis Eric Elie, Damon Lee Fowler, Nikki Giovanni, Jessica Harris, Karen Hess, Jack Hitt, Ted and Matthew Lee, Ronni Lundy, Robert Morgan, James Villas, and Robb Walsh.

Synopsis:

This is the first volume of an annual collection of the best writing about southern food, published in collaboration with the Southern Foodways Alliance.

Synopsis:

"Cornbread Nation 1" gathers the best of recent Southern food writing--51 entries culled from original features and previously published selections in magazines and journals--in which contributors celebrate the people, places, traditions, and tastes of the American South. 50 illustrations.
