Tasty Reads set to meet Tuesday

MARQUETTE — Tasty Reads, a book group for readers who like to cook, will focus on “The Best Cook in the World: Tales from My Momma’s Table” by Rick Bragg when the group meets at noon Tuesday in the Peter White Public Library’s Shiras Room.

In this humorous food memoir, Bragg presents a tribute to his family, especially his mother, presenting her recollections of family stories with respect to how they cooked and ate in the deep South from the 1920s on. Each chapter includes recipes, most of which were never written down and are vague with respect to amounts, oven temperatures, and length of cooking time. But with a well-seasoned cast iron skillet, some common sense and a feel for seasoning, these dishes can be recreated.
