Description
"While a luscious layer cake may exemplify the towering glory of Southern baking, like everything about the American South, baking is far more complicated than it seems. Rebecca Sharpless here weaves a brilliant chronicle, vast in perspective and entertaining in detail, revealing how three global food traditions -- Indigenous American, European, and African -- collided with and merged in the economies, cultures, and foodways of the South to create what we know as the Southern baking tradition"--,Provided by publisher.
