Southern Foodways Alliance Community Cookbook Release Events

Posted by on Tue, Oct 12, 2010 at 10:10 AM

Two of our own community cooks—April McGreger and Sheri Castle, both of Chapel Hill—are shedding light on some of the larger southern community’s best recipes and stories. McGreger and Castle are among five writers who helped cull and test entries for the recently released Southern Foodways Alliance Community Cookbook. The Southern Foodways Alliance is a member organization of cooks, academics, documentarians, and eaters that studies and celebrates the South’s many foods and traditions. Join McGreger and Castle at two local events to taste samplings from their book and to pick up a copy.

At 7 p.m. on Friday, Foster’s Market in Chapel Hill (750 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Chapel Hill,, 919-967-3663) and its neighbor Flyleaf Books (752 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Chapel Hill,, 919-942-7373) will join together to present a book signing and tasting.

For a larger menu of southern food and stories, visit McGreger and Castle at 4 p.m. on Sunday at 3Cups (227 S. Elliot Road, Chapel Hill,, 919-968-8993). Tickets are available for that event at two rates: $40 provides a copy of the cookbook (which retails for $25), plus food and wine, and $25 purchases food and drinks only. Expect boiled peanuts, Coca-Cola brisket sliders, pickled okra, Carolina muddle, and more.
