"Most of all, I love that this book captures the real meat of life, not just its gravy."
-Lily Binns, Saveur
"Sometimes recipes produce more than a good meal; they bring history to life. Such is the case with Mrs. Rowe's Restaurant Cookbook."
-Country Living Magazine
"Even those not familiar with Mrs. Rowe's will appreciate the collection of Southern and Appalachian favorites. . . Bryan's thoughtfully written portrait of the late Mildred Rowe adds to the charm."

My husband and I actually ate at Mrs. Rowe's Restaurant a few years ago and I had my first taste of Spoon Bread - it was great as was the entire meal. It was a Sunday around noon (we were traveling from FL to VT) and the restaurant was full of locals that had just come in from church service. They were all dressed up - including the men in ties, ladies in dresses and children in their Sunday best. It was like going back in time to the 50s when we all did this. So skip those chain restaurants and stop in at Mrs. Rowe's - Exit 222 of I-81 in Staunton, VA and have a taste of the past - it is delicious!
If you have a liking for apple dumplings or rhubarb pie, you'll love Mrs. Rowe's, and the recipes along with tons of others are in the book.
Buy, eat and enjoy!
Also: some I'd never make because I don't like that type of food.
Overall; this is a fine cookbook and mostly what I will use it for is baked goods.
It's history.....it's like when I was a little kid. Makes me think of 'Ma'.
I also have her pie cookbook (Mrs. Rowe's Little Book of Southern Pies, with lots of scrumptious recipes .Lots of stories and recipe descriptions in this book, too.I appreciate these.
If you are in Virginia on I81 at exit 222, stop at Mrs. Rowe's Family resturant (has been there for almost 60 years) for a snack (best pies around) or a meal. I have been doing so for over 20 years. But buy her cookbook at Amazon - it's much cheaper.
