Gentle breezes and southern aromas ease their way from these pages and provide a warming caress that whisks the reader back to Saturday afternoon cowboy movies, dressing up for the neighbors' porch parties, the Sumter County fair, and a time when manners and special friendships where the rule and not the exception. Clara Eschmann shares her favorite columns and the recipes that tie special flavors to each story. She brings back true Southern hospitality as it was known many years ago.

Len Berg’s Restaurant was an institution in Macon, Georgia, for almost a century. In later years, when owner Jeff Amerson ordered the annual billboard that simply said, “H.M.F.P.I.C. You Know Where,” customers knew. They knew where to find “home made fresh peach ice cream” on June 1. Throughout the year, they knew where to find black-eyed peas, salmon croquettes, turnip greens, cornbread, lemon meringue pie, and more. They knew where to find classic Southern food that was good for the soul. Thirty beloved recipes appear in this text, but Remembering Len Berg’s Restaurant is more about the place and about the people who kept the establishment a favorite destination for good food for almost 100 years.

Restless Fires provides a detailed rendering of John Muir’s thousand-mile walk to the Gulf based on both manuscript and published accounts. Hunt particularly examines the development of Muir’s environmental thought as a young adult. The legacy of this walk is found in Muir’s perceptive insights generated in part by his background and reading, and by his experience with the Southern environment and its people and plants during the walk.

RISE AND SHINE! is an engaging, funny, and poignant memoir about a Southern son and his life’s relationship with food. Johnathon Barrett takes you on a decades-long journey of culinary exploration. Successfully melding those early days of learning the basics of Southern fare and later stretching his culinary skills, Barrett demonstrates in this narrative his formula for a successful casual dinner or a formal black tie affair. With several menus and 100 recipes ranging from down-home picnic offerings such as ‘Joyce’s Don’t Mess with Success Pimento Cheese’ to a magnificent platter of ‘Grouper Meunière,’ the author provides a wonderful array of delights for contemporary cooks. This culinary love letter to Barrett’s parents and other loved ones who raised him will make you laugh, maybe shed a tear, and fill your hearts with a renewed appreciation for the magic that can happen in a family’s kitchen.
