ISBN 0-925117-87-0.
For lovers of the South, that is to say, for people who love the South, Good Food, Good Folks, Good Times is perfect. Descriptions by the author, Patricia B. Mitchell, of her growing up days in Virginia, Mississippi, and Louisiana make irresistible reading. The stories are told in a “chatty” style because the text of Good Food, Good Folks, Good Times is based on an illustrated lecture Ms. Mitchell gave at the Natchez Literary Festival in 1994. Ms. Mitchell defines and explains the basic “indicators” of traditional Southern foodways, and at the end of the book offers some representative recipes.
