Food Stories: Writing that Stirs the Pot
Shipping calculated at checkout
Collected from the award-winning digital newsletter and occasional print magazine, these twenty one stories represent The Bitter Southerner editors’ favorites from their first decade.
Although change is a common theme, nostalgia rarely is. These are writers who are keenly observing the world about them: restless, curious, sometimes impatient, resisting the urge to always make themselves the center of the story when the farmer, the man behind the counter, or the cooking method deserves attention.
Among the authors and stories:
- Rachel Louise Martin, “How Hot Chicken Really Happened”
- Farhan Mustafa, “Immigrant Spaghetti”
- Shane Mitchell, “A Hunger for Tomatoes”
- Michael Adno, “The Short, Brilliant Life of Ernest Matthew Mickler”
- Jennifer Justus, “Country Cooking: Minnie’s Corn Pudding & Tammy’s Better than Sex Cake
Very fine examples of food writing.
