“It’s fennel and sweet potato and garlic and onion. This one I can claim. I really like crab; it’s just so inherently sweet. And I think we’re a very casserole-prone culture. In Yazoo City or here—or even if you’re in Greenwood—there aren’t fifteen restaurants in town. You don’t call up ADD for takeout. If you want Chinese food, then you cook Chinese food. And also since there aren’t a lot of restaurants, there’s a lot of going to each other’s houses. Casseroles are such an easy pack-it-up choice.”- Martha Hall Foose, author of A Southerly Course.
