Author Rick Bragg and his mother, Margaret.

Rick Bragg’s new memoir, The Best Cook in the World: Tales From My Momma’s Table, takes us back to Possum Trot, Alabama, but this time it’s all about the food. We talk to Rick about the dishes he grew up eating; his momma, Margaret; and the legacy of Southern blue-collar cooking. Ham and red-eye gravy over fresh diced tomatoes, anyone?
