Description: More than a cookbook, The Foxfire Book of Appalachian Cookery combines unpretentious, delectable American recipes with the wit and wisdom of the people who have prepared and eaten this food for generations. 

Drawn from the wealth of material gathered by Foxfire students, a group dedicated to preserving and recording the heritage and traditions of the Appalachian area, and illustrated with photographs of the kitchens, people, and food of Appalachia, this book is an outstanding record of a folk heritage. 

There are more than 500 recipes including favorites such as rhubarb cobbler, Brunswick stew, angel flake biscuits, lime pickles, and more. The book also explains traditional methods of preparing and preserving food, including directions for making homemade yeast, cooking with a wood stove or fireplace, preparing wild game, canning, cooking for a crowd, and a bounty of practical information.
