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.

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.

This book, the first of three volumes, chronicles a highly personal journey, with plenty of loafing stops along the way, through the hills and hollows of Southern Appalachia, in search of the tastes that define and sustain the region’s people. Join food writer Fred Sauceman as the sorghum syrup thickens in September, as the First Family of Country Music repeats the late summer ritual of making the vinegary, vegetable-packed relish called chow-chow in Virginia, and as ramps, audacious cousins to the green onion, first push through winter’s leaves on the forest floor near the Cherokee reservation in North Carolina. Learn pimento cheese techniques from octogenarian pharmacists, eat gas station pizza off a warm car hood, and revel in the simple but ingenious concoction called “Beans All the Way.”

In the third and final volume of the series, The Place Setting: Timeless Tastes of the Mountain South, Fred Sauceman continues his exploration of Appalachian foodways. The book's geographical reach extends from the land of pepperoni rolls, created by Italian bakeries for coal miners in northern West Virginia, to downtown Chattanooga, Tennessee, where the Zarzour family, originally from the Middle East, has operated a Southern butter-bean-turnip-green diner since 1918.
