A long friendship with John brings this to mind, but what keeps it there is more. One can sense his deep historical knowledge and feel his years of experience gardening, fishing, and cooking in this unique Southern region. With warmth, verve, and erudition—and recipes to match--he tells the tale of a place, its people, and the meaning of what they cultivate and eat.
