In her introduction to Screen Doors and Sweet Tea: Recipes and Tales from a Southern Cook, Martha Hall Foose says, "all in all, this book is about my home, and I know no better way to tell its stories than through food."
Martha is executive chef of the Viking Cooking School. Born and raised in the Mississippi Delta, she attended the famed pastry school École Lenôtre in France. She returned to Mississippi and opened Bottletree Bakery in Oxford – and later, with her husband, Mockingbird Bakery in Greenwood.
The Clarion-Ledger offers a few recipes from the cookbook here.
