Format: Hardcover
Reading "Hungry for Home" is a delightful experience - like visiting the Carolinas without paying for airfare and hotels, meeting many new people (the contributors of the recipes), and pleasing the taste buds without putting on the extra weight. I don't live in the Carolinas and I don't even eat shellfish, but this book has me looking for an opportunity to get there asap and experience some of the touching dimensions of this land. Not to mention get a bite of some of these dishes. The book offers a surprising global sampling from Vietnamese to Creole, West Afrian and Jewish. Author Amy Rogers has made a noble effort to address the urgency of hunger as a tragic reality of American life without robbing the reader of the joy she obviously takes in preparing and exploring foods of the region. Her dedication to representing the poignant and often funny voices and traditions of the truly diverse people of the Carolinas is also commendable -- from descendants of slaves to recent Asian immigrants, you'd be surprised! Of course, there are the expected down-home offerings like ham and fried chicken. But with this book, the food is just one-third the story. The other two-thirds come with the imaginative evocation of region and the individuals you meet in essays provided (by contributors) along with their recipes. The reader really feels the social connections offered by sharing selected dishes with others. After reading this book, I feel I have met a whole crowd of Carolinians. Next time I visit my sister in Charlotte, I will feel right at home.

I'm a great fan of cook books - love browsing through them in stores, in libraries, and at home. When I received Hungry for Home as a gift, I was thrilled to discover that not only is it beautifully presented (I have the hardcover version) but it also lends itself to long happy hours of browsing and reading. This is so much more than a cook book - it's a memorable experience in sensory reading. I met people from all parts of the Carolinas and discovered dishes and ways of preparing food that I'd never even heard about before.

Author Amy Rogers is a gifted food writer and memoirist. In 'The Best Blueberry Dessert' she writes about her mother preparing the simple yet mouthwateringly delicious dish: "I can still picture her in the kitchen of our little split-level house on Long Island. She's wearing her summer ensemble of white slacks, a sleeveless top, and sunglasses on top of her head, where she's left them after coming home from shopping at the farm stand nearby." I can see the kitchen, the mother and the dainty glasses of blueberries in sour cream and brown sugar, and immediately, I want to rush out and buy blueberries to make the dessert.

The book is full of recipes and remembrances, skillfully interwoven and deliciously tantalizing. This is a book I'll keep and return to time and again, not only for foodie inspiration, but also for pleasurable reading!

More of an intersting read than interesting recipes. I've made a few, they were fine, but there's nothing here that grabbed my attention as a must make.
