Among the staple foods most welcomed on southern tables—and on tables around the world—rice is without question the most versatile. As Michael W. Twitty observes, depending on regional tastes, rice may be enjoyed at breakfast, lunch, and dinner; as main dish, side dish, and snack; in dishes savory and sweet. Filling and delicious, rice comes in numerous botanical varieties and offers a vast range of scents, tastes, and textures depending on how it is cooked. In some dishes, it is crunchingly crispy; in others, soothingly smooth; in still others, somewhere right in between. Commingled or paired with other foods, rice is indispensable to the foodways of the South. As Twitty's fifty-one recipes deliciously demonstrate, rice stars in Creole, Acadian, soul food, Low Country, and Gulf Coast kitchens, as well as in the kitchens of cooks from around the world who are now at home in the South. Exploring rice's culinary history and African diasporic identity, Twitty shows how to make the southern classics as well as international dishes—everything from Savannah Rice Waffles to Ghanaian Crab Stew. As Twitty gratefully sums up, "Rice connects me to every other person, southern and global, who is nourished by rice's traditions and customs."

Sara Foster takes the expression "easy as pie" seriously. New and experienced bakers alike will thrill to Foster's encouraging approach to tossing together the most delicious made-from-scratch pies. A southern kitchen is unimaginable without pie, says Foster, who grew up on a farm in Tennessee, where many a meal ended with a bubbling pie or cobbler straight from the oven. "There were many pie makers in my family, and no one ever needed a recipe—they just mixed, rolled out pastry, and baked to perfection," she writes. Surrounded from an early age by her pie-baking mother, grandmothers, aunts, cousins, and neighbors, Foster developed a natural passion for pies. Here, reap the rewards of Foster's inspiration: fifty-seven recipes for amazing pies, including the southern classics, each one matched to one of eleven perfect pie crusts. You'll find pies piled with fruit, pies stuffed with nuts, custard and cream pies, icebox pies, tarts and hand pies--and savory pies, too. Guided by Foster's clear instructions and how-to tips, you too will soon be pulling a pie pan of joy out of the oven for every season and taste.
