THE BEST COOK IN THE WORLD Tales from My Momma's Table

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Rick Bragg

Biography & Memoir • 19.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Prepare to hunger for genuine Southern fare as author Rick Bragg pays tribute to his delightful mother--and to the food and storied culture of the region itself. In a Southern drawl, Bragg offers up a memoir that's wrapped around recipes and the stories they're rooted in. Describing a long family history of preparing the ultimate slow food requires an unhurried narration and many side journeys, so this audiobook is not for the impatient. Those who settle in will feast for hours at Bragg's memory buffet while meeting his colorful ancestors--and of course, his momma, the best cook in the world. Listening to the recipes is itself entertaining; Bragg fully captures his mom's colorful directions and commentary: "Grits is to carry the other flavors of stuff . . . Grits ain't nuthin' just left by theirself." J.C.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2018]
