With charming narratives, visual storytelling, and delectable recipes, A Good Meal Is Hard to Find is everything you’ve ever wanted in a Southern cookbook. Straight from the Mississippi Delta, esteemed cookbook author Martha Hall Foose reimagines Southern cooking, teaming up with artist Amy C. Evans to create this distinctive and inspired keepsake—a must-have for cookbook lovers, vintage collectors, and Southern cooking enthusiasts alike.

Inside are 60 go-to recipes, each introduced by a laugh-out-loud vignette. From Francine’s bedtime doughnut to Edna’s blind date at the barbecue joint, you’ll enjoy getting to know the habits of this eccentric cast of Southern characters almost as much as you’ll love the recipes.

With sections on breakfast, lunch, and dinner—otherwise known as Morning’s Glories, Lingering Lunches, and Dinner Dates & Late- Night Takes—as well as Afternoon Pick-Me-Ups and Anytime Sweets, there is something here for every occasion. Try Ivy’s Sweet Sausage Balls at your next brunch bu­ffet, whip up Gayle’s Lucky Chicken Posole for last-minute dinner guests, or relax on your porch with a slice of Estelle’s Butterscotch Pound Cake. The eye-catching artwork that accompanies each recipe makes this cookbook all the more unique.

Inspired by generations of storytelling and Southern comfort food, this one-of-a-kind collection of timeless recipes, whimsical characters, and beautiful paintings is more than just a cookbook—it’s a love letter to the Deep South.
