Summary, etc.:
Bragg presents a food memoir, cookbook, and tribute to his mother. Margaret Bragg does not own a single cookbook, measures ingredients by "dabs" and judges "done" by look and smell. Her son shares classic family recipes-- many of them pre-dating the Civil War-- as well as preparation secrets for traditional Southern fare.
