A SOPHISTICATED COUNTRY PALATE "Susan Loomis understands that food is made by people, not machines. In this excellent book, she shares her affection for the growers and their lives, the foods they grow and the ways they cook them . . . a culinary, social, and even political odyssey." --Barbara Kafka, author of Microwave Gourmet and Microwave Gourmet Healthstyle Cookbook Hot biscuits from a country kitchen. Duck Breasts with Honey and Thyme Sauce. Peach Pies cooling on the windowsill and Ancho Chile Pepper Puree in the larder. In a book as warm and generous and unexpected as the food it celebrates, Susan Hermann Loomis shares the fruits of a 20,000-mile adventure criss-crossing America in search of the soul of farmhouse cooking. Hear the dinner bell ringing.
