Description: Al Gore has been U.S. Congressman, Senator, and Vice President. But it is the families and values of Tennessee that have most shaped his life and career. It was on his parents' family farm in Carthage, for instance, that he first learned the importance of caring for the environment. And when he and Tipper started their family in 1973, they purchased their own farm in Carthage.
Everything people do in Carthage seems to revolve around food -- political announcements, festivals, honors, church fellowships, and exhibits. Even plain old meetings seem to end up at the City Cafe around plate-sized hamburgers and iced tea. The food in the Smith County jail is so good that it is said some people actually want to go to jail so they can eat well.
A Taste of Carthage is a wonderful collection of more than 300 favorite recipes that have been handed down from generation to generation by the citizens of Carthage but shared with very few outsiders. It includes the Beef Filet that Pauline Gore served at Gore Cattle Sale parties as well as Mrs. Inez's Old-Fashioned Pound Cake. A Taste oj Carthage is a book of prized Southern recipes and an intimate portrait through pictures and stories of the hometown of Al Gore.
