Replacements, Ltd. Welcomes North Carolina Cookbook Author Foy Allen Edelman
GREENSBORO, N.C., October 19, 2010 – Replacements, Ltd. is proud to welcome North Carolina writer Foy Allen Edelman for a special signing of her book, “ Sweet Carolina: Favorite Desserts and Candies from the Old North State,” on Saturday, November 13, 2010 from 1 to 4 p.m. in the company’s retail store.
Edelman spent five years traveling North Carolina collecting tried and true recipes – from magic pumpkin pie to strawberry pizza – from all 100 counties. Her cookbook goes beyond the ingredients to include insights and personal stories behind the recipes lovingly handed down. “Many of the recipes were inherited, and some families have made their recipes for so long that they can't remember where they got them,” says Edelman. “ Sweet Carolina contains recipes that range from easy to complex. Most contain fewer than ten ingredients; many take less than half an hour to prepare. Some chapters are introduced with what I call kitchen wisdom, either my own or some advice one of the contributing cooks offered. I hope this will aid in making dishes successfully.”
The Tar Heel writer will share a number of the actual desserts and sign copies of Sweet Carolina just in time for the upcoming holiday season.
