North Carolina Heritage Foods

Georgann Eubanks will visit City Lights Bookstore on Friday, December 7th at 6:30 p.m. She will present her latest book, The Month of Their Ripening: North Carolina Heritage Foods Through the Year. Telling the stories of twelve North Carolina heritage foods, each matched to the month of its peak readiness for eating, Georgann Eubanks takes readers on a flavorful journey across the state. She begins in January with the most ephemeral of southern ingredients--snow--to witness Tar Heels making snow cream. In March, she takes a midnight canoe ride on the Trent River in search of shad, a bony fish with a savory history. In April, she highlights how garlicky green ramps, traditionally savored by many Cherokee people, is endangered by its increasing popularity in fine restaurants. In November, she visits a Chatham County sawmill where the possums are always first into the persimmon trees.
