Everybody has one in their collection. You know―one of those old, spiral- or plastic-tooth-bound cookbooks sold to support a high school marching band, a church, or the local chapter of the Junior League. These recipe collections reflect, with unimpeachable authenticity, the dishes that define communities: chicken and dumplings, macaroni and cheese, chess pie. When the Southern Foodways Alliance began curating a cookbook, it was to these spiral-bound, sauce-splattered pages that they turned for their model.
Including more than 170 tested recipes, this cookbook is a true reflection of southern foodways and the people, regardless of residence or birthplace, who claim this food as their own. Traditional and adapted, fancy and unapologetically plain, these recipes are powerful expressions of collective identity. There is something from―and something for―everyone. The recipes and the stories that accompany them came from academics, writers, catfish farmers, ham curers, attorneys, toqued chefs, and people who just like to cook―spiritual Southerners of myriad ethnicities, origins, and culinary skill levels.
Edited by Sara Roahen and John T. Edge, written, collaboratively, by Sheri Castle, Timothy C. Davis, April McGreger, Angie Mosier, and Fred Sauceman, the book is divided into chapters that represent the region’s iconic foods: Gravy, Garden Goods, Roots, Greens, Rice, Grist, Yardbird, Pig, The Hook, The Hunt, Put Up, and Cane. Therein you’ll find recipes for pimento cheese, country ham with redeye gravy, tomato pie, oyster stew, gumbo z’herbes, and apple stack cake. You’ll learn traditional ways of preserving green beans, and you’ll come to love refried black-eyed peas.

The 25th annual Fort Smith Riverfront Blues Festival attracted hundreds of people to Harry E. Kelley Park on Saturday. Backdropped by a surging Arkansas River, the occasional shade from a partly cloudy sky and a slight breeze offered intermittent protection in the 98-degree heat as sound waves of the blues washed over the crowd. Backstage, Dale Carter of Annidale Sound in Fort Smith watched over 50,000 watts of speakers supported by five amp racks. Two sets of four sub-woofer boxes and four mid- and high-boxes launched a thick wall of sound the Eric Mathews Band rode to kick off an evening of music on this second day of the two-day festival. Earl & Them, led by Earl Cate, carried the flame of heart-rushing music performed by John Davies on bass, Jason Davis on guitar, Dave Renko on sax, and Terry Cagle on drums. Known in Arkansas as living legends, Cate and Cagle have played together off and on since the mid-1960s. Anyone who has ever heard Earl & Them play “The Weight,” and felt it sound eerily like Levon Helm on drums and vocals, may already have figured out that it’s because the late Levon Helm is Cagle’s uncle, and he taught him a thing or two. “Levon was with the Cate brothers in the Delrays until the fall of ’66, and then he went with The Band to record ‘Music From Big Pink,’” Cagle explained. “In October 1966, I filled in. I was 15. ”. Although they played regularly in the region, Cagle said he didn’t start touring nationally with the Delrays until 1975. They would go on to tour the United States and Canada. Craig Burns has been involved with the blues festival for 21 years. Digital equipment and contracting the sound system management out to Annidale Sound has smoothed things out for the stage director this year, but the dwindling number of sponsors has limited the number of music acts. Burns said he was glad to have seen Johnny Winter perform at the 2013 Fort Smith blues festival. Winter died on July 16, 2014, at the age of 70. Burns was not glad to see a wedding scheduled at the River Park Events Building across from Harry E. Kelley Park. While festival emcee Wanda Watson and Tulsa radio personality Roy D. Mercer entertained the crowd, Fort Smith Riverfront Blues Society board member Tim Wilson prepared to announce the winners of the Barry Ratliff Scholarship. Source: swtimes.com
