Victuals An Appalachian Journey, With Recipes By Lundy, Ronni Book - 2016

I finally feel like I have adequate knowledge about the genesis of the slaw dog.

I checked this book out after a couple of people praised it and, to tell you the truth, some of these dishes looked quite un-delicious. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I grew up eating some suspect looking dishes, too. I soldiered through and found a few keepers- mainly things made of potato (rosti; kale potato cakes) but I'm most excited to attempt to make some rosebud capers to put in some clabber, which I will serve with my various potato pancakes! On another aspect, the photography that accompanies the text is enjoyable. I like photos of pigs, picninc tables, pickled strawberries, and such. It's not quite Foxfire 3 but a little more than White Trash Cooking (Mickler).
