Writer: Cookbook a love letter to Appalachian food

Ronni Lundy
Ronni Lundy, food critic for The Courier-Journal in Louisville, has written a cookbook that she calls a love letter to food in her native Appalachia, Bill Burton reports for WFPL of Louisvillle. The book, Victuals, "highlights not only the long cherished recipes of the region, but the stories of the food and people who created them."

Lundy told Burton, “One thing that happens to Appalachians and the culture of Appalachia is that we’ve had our story and our voices taken away from us. We have had other people say who we are. We’re not allowed to say who we are ourselves. So, that’s another really important part of this book for me, is that other people’s voices shine through and come through it.”

Lundy will appear at 3 p.m. Sunday at Carmichael’s Bookstore in Louisville. To listen to the audio interview with her click here.
