Granny, Nana, Mamaw, or Gigi.
It doesn’t matter what you call her. If her roots are in the South, your grandmother’s recipe box probably includes a dish or two you’ve longed to recreate.
How about her legendary chicken and dumplings or the loaves of zucchini bread she always baked from her garden’s summertime bounty? Does your mouth water when you think back on her Sunday pot roasts or the hash brown casserole she always made on Thanksgiving morning? You remember the strawberry pudding cake she whipped up for special birthday dinners? The meals you enjoyed at your grandmother’s table may very well have been your first exposure to the notion of Southern hospitality and the idea that we really can show our love through food.
Faye Porter’s At My Grandmother’s Knee celebrates grandma’s cooking and the stories from the grandchildren whose own memories are sure to spark a few of your own. Throughout this collection, you’ll sit at the tables of dozens of Southern grandmas and sample recipes that have made them famous with their family for decades. Don’t be surprised if you see a few of your own family favorites along the way.
