The food and wine editor for Town and Country presents a collection of 265 simple, no-nonsense Southern recipes--everything from Barbecued Spareribs to Sweet Potato Biscuits. Intertwined with colorful family lore, bits of nostalgia, and cooking tips, the recipes are drawn from Martha Pearl Villas' sacred black cookbook, compiled over decades.
