Victuals by Ronni Lundy is a cookbook and storybook about the Appalachian food and journey. Many of photography is absolutely stunning, tempting me to want to vacation in the Appalachian countryside somewhere and gorge on the yummy food. I was a bit disappointed though with the long story. When I get a cookbook, I enjoy lots of colorful and beautiful photographs. I don't want to read much, except for the recipes. While I'm sure the story is beautiful and well-told, I could not find myself wanting to read it. So I mostly flipped the pages until I got to the recipes and any pages with photographs. I really wish they had more photographs!
I am excited to try the English Pea Salad with Cream Dressing and the Perfect One-Eyed Jack recipe because I always have those ingredients on hand.
