Windham was a local history buff and an accomplished storyteller. Those skills helped her to make this cookbook much more than a cookbook. She features recipes from Alabama’s Coast, the Piney Woods, the Wiregrass, the Black Belt, the Tennessee Valley, the Appalachians, and the cities. Sprinkled through the recipes are bits of local history and funny stories from each region of Alabama, all with lovely sketches by Diane Hamilton Sampson. Again, this book is in mint condition!
