Free read The Best Cook in the World 106 Rick Bragg ó 6 review Them pre date the Civil War handed down skillet by skillet from one generation of Braggs to the next In The Best Cook in the World Rick Bragg finally preserves his heritage by telling the stories that framed his mother's cooking and education from childhood into old a. I have put off writing a review of this book because I have found it hard to find the right words To say I loved it just does not portray the feelings I have for this memory of family and food Except for a few regional differences these are the recipes of my North Carolina family and these are their experiences Every photographs with so many appearing to be made in those old carnival photo booths touched my heart I cried over turtle stews as I recalled my uncle once a year firing up the pit in a field behind our house and all those long gone men passing the jar and waiting for their bowls I remembered my grandma packing her brown paper bag and threatening to go back to live at the old house if my grandpa didn t go over and get her woodstove and get shed of that new electric stove There are few books that a reader can live in but this is one Especially if you are a Southerner of textile or tenant farming descent don t miss this one Thank you thank you Rick Bragg

Free read The Best Cook in the World 106 Rick Bragg ó 6 review Margaret Bragg does not own a single cookbook She measures in dabs and smidgens and tads and you know hon just some She cannot be pinned down on how long to bake corn bread about 15 to 20 minutes depending on the mysteries of your oven Her notion of farm to table is a. This book was an absolute delight Rick Bragg writes lovingly about his mother and her southern cooking and shares amazing stories about his wackadoo familyI listened to this book on audio read by Bragg himself and I highly recommend it He has a charming narration and I found the book positively soothing This was the first Bragg book I ve read but I loved it so much I ve already reuested his other works from the libraryHighly recommended for readers who like foodie memoirs or tales of southern lifeOpening PassageSince she was eleven years old even if all she had to work with was neck bones peppergrass or poke salad she put good food on a plate She cooked for dead broke uncles hungover brothers shade tree mechanics faith healers dice shooters hairdressers pipe fitters crop dusters high steel walkers and well diggers She cooked for ironworkers Avon ladies highway patrolman sweatshop seamstresses fortune tellers coal haulers dirt track daredevils and dime store girls She cooked for lost souls stumbling home from Aunt Hattie s beer joint and for singing cowboys on the AM radio She cooked in her first eighty years than seventy thousand meals as basic as hot buttered biscuits with pear preserves or muscadine jelly as exotic as tender braised beef tripe in white milk gravy in kitchens where the only ventilation was the banging of the screen door She cooked for people she d just as soon have poisoned and for the loves of her life

Free read The Best Cook in the World 106 Rick Bragg ó 6 review Flatbed truck But she can tell you the secrets to perfect mashed potatoes corn pudding redeye gravy pinto beans and hambone stewed cabbage short ribs chicken and dressing biscuits and butter rolls The irresistible stories in this audiobook are of long memory many of. This book is than just a memoir than a cookbook It is about a family who have shared their secrets to feeding a lot of people on a nickle who have passed down traditions along with their cooking who took care of one another even if they didn t like each other much sometimes and who even shared a precious cast iron skillet at one time or anotherWanting to preserve the amazing dishes Rick Bragg decides to try to get it all down on paper before it s lost This is not an easy task as Margaret Bragg does not own a cookbook does not measure any ingredients and does it the way she and generations before her were taught You know a tad a smidgen and just enough She doesn t time anything in the oven yer nose will tell ya when it s done She is correctThe book goes back through generations of what I can only call characters and the book is humorous at times Everything from the man who ran away to live on his own in the woods to his being begged to come back and teach a new wife to cook before her husband starved the begging was by the husband who was so thin at this point he was ready to disappear He succeeds in bringing him back and there is no love found between the man and his son s new wife In fact they almost downright hate each other for a while Their story alone makes this a worthwhile read Will the wife shoot the old man Will the husband wither away and die from her bad cooking Will the law find the old man and finally take him inSome of the recipes won t fly so well in today s world although there are people even some I know who have cooked raccoon and suirrels In this book it s a matter of survivalI loved the book It s a keeper to be enjoyed again
