This cookbook is so beautiful, you'll want to just leaf through it for hours. It is more than just a cookbook: it's a love letter to the women and food of the Deep South. 

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. 

Inside are 60 go-to recipes organized into five chapters—Morning's Glories, Lingering Lunches, Dinner Dates & Late-Night Takes, Afternoon Pick-Me-Ups, and Anytime Sweets. 

Recipes written by award-winning cookbook author and Southern food expert Martha Hall Foose, as part of a collaboration with artist Amy C. Evans; you'll drool over her vintage-inspired acrylic paintings that accompany each recipe. 

Each of the 60 recipes opens with a short vignette about a story about a unique Southern character. It is so charming!

The book is divided into five chapters from breakfast to dinner, with cocktails and desserts in between.

Inspired by generations of storytelling and Southern comfort food, this genre-bending cookbook is a must-have for cookbook lovers, vintage collectors, and Southern cooking enthusiasts alike.

  • Francine's Strawberry-Glazed Doughnuts
  • Camille's Bridge Club Egg Salad
