More About the Author

Crescent Dragonwagon, the author of the James Beard Award-winning Passionate Vegetarian, The Cornbread Gospels, Dairy Hollow House Soup & Bread Cookbook, many children's books, and two novels, has just completed Bean by Bean.

Dragonwagon is a Southern Yankee: though born in New York, for 18 years she was innkeeper/chef/co-owner of Dairy Hollow House, an acclaimed country inn in the Ozark Mountain community of Eureka Springs, Arkansas, where she resided for 36 years. But, since 2002, she has lived in Westminster West, Vermont.

Dragonwagon has the distinction of having prepared beans and cornbread for a president (Bill Clinton), titled royalty (Princess Elizabeth of Yugoslavia), a world-renowned feminist (Betty Friedan) and Marilyn Monroe's first biographer (Maurice Zolotow). She teaches two writing workshops, Deep Feast: Writing the World through Food, and Fearless Writing, around the world (the latter, she teaches once a year, in the Whole Enchilada version, from her own home hilltop in the Green Mountains). She has appeared on Good Morning America, Today, TVFN, & CNN.

She lives, writes, and cooks in the 1795 farmhouse which once belonged to her aunt, at which she spent summers when a child. She shares the place with her partner, filmmaker David Koff, and, often, numerous well-fed friends. An ardent gardener, she's currently growing 4 different varieties of bush beans, and 5 of pole beans. .. under the supervision of her large and amiable tabby cat, Cattywhompus (who can usually be found rolling in the catmint).

Honestly, if you have an adult child leaving home and want to send them off with one cookbook, this should be the one.

Format: Paperback
This book is filled with simple, proven and easy to prepare recipes which are out of this world. Each recipe is preceded by an anecdote of how the dish was invented and each dish comes with many suggestions for modification. Modifications are based on what is fresh and available during different times of the year. Incredibly easy to follow, these recipes are rich and varied. "The Salad" recipe is one of the best salads you will ever eat and takes 5 minutes to prepare and will turn out the same everytime if you just follow the simple directions. One of my favorite things about this book are the stories which precede each recipe and the fact that the recipes always, always turn out just as delicious as she describes!

If you haven't visited the Ozarks, specifically, Eureka Springs in northwest Arkansas, you will want to after getting and using this book. Crescent paints a picture of the lifestyle and food style that many of us came here to enjoy. Not to mention are the delicious recipes that have become some of my staples. During blueberry season here, I HAVE to make her Bountiful Blueberry Muffins! I have wowed many with her "Ark-Mex" Lasagna. My kids grew up loving the Dairy Hollow House German Baked Pancake. It still hits the spot every time. There are numerous recipes that I could mention, but space does not allow....but just one more....Hashbrown Quiche!!! (so delish!!)
One of the things that is unique about this cookbook, is the friendly way Crescent titles various dinner menus, such as Supper Before the Opera at Inspiration Point or (my favie) First Lighting of the Wood Stove or Fireplace Fall Supper.
DHH Cookbook will put you back in touch with the joy of cooking and enjoying meals with the people you love! This one needs to be in your collection!

She gives such reverence to the pleasures of the kitchen. Honestly, if you have an adult child leaving home and want to send them off with one cookbook, this should be the one. Move over Fannie Farmer, you've been out-done.

I have -- and love -- all of Crescent Dragonwagon's cookbooks, including her first (The Commune Cookbook). However, this is probably my personal favorite, since I have made a great many of the recipes, and they have all been absolutely wonderful. The authors writing is also a great pleasure. Don't miss this one!
