For nine weeks this fall, Howard will be traveling around the Southeast in a very large, very colorful food truck. Vivian and her team will stop in more than 20 towns, light up the stove and cook up a Deep Run Roots inspired spread. On the menu will be Tom Thumb, Shrimp Stew with Poached Eggs, Watermelon Pickles Wrapped in Bacon, Scarlett’s Chicken and Rice, Warm Banana Pudding, Pepsi and Peanut Ice Cream Floats and a whole lot more.
Vivian Howard celebrates the flavors of North Carolina’s coastal plain in more than 200 recipes and stories in Deep Run Roots.
Howard’s new classic of American country cooking, Deep Run Roots proves that the food of Deep Run, North Carolina–Vivian’s home–is as rich as any culinary tradition in the world.
Organized by ingredient with dishes suited to every skill level–from beginners to confident cooks–Deep Run Roots features time-honored simple preparations, extraordinary meals from her acclaimed restaurant Chef and the Farmer, and recipes that bring new traditions to life. Home cooks will find photographs for every single recipe.
As much a storybook as it is a cookbook, Deep Run Roots imparts the true tale of Southern food: rooted in family and tradition, yet calling out to the rest of the world.
