characters The Best Cook in the World Free read Á The Best Cook in the World 104 Ipes recorded here for the first time pre date the Civil War handed down skillet by skillet from one generation of Braggs to the next In The Best Cook in the World Rick Bragg finally preserves his heritage by telling the stories that framed his mother's cooking and education from childhood into old age Because good food always has a good story and a recipe writes Bragg is a story like anything el. An Author and a Sister to Bragg AboutWhat a fun read While Rick Bragg shared his mother s recipes he also had many stories to tell not just stories about his mother but about other people as well Some were laugh out loud funny but so were the recipes not that they were not real recipes but you won t catch me making any of them In other words she was not the best cook in the world or even the county where she lived well maybe she was as some people love country cooking Maybe it should really be called back woods cookingWhat is back wood cooking To me it means making poke salad He will ALMOST tell you how to cook poke salad yes cook Poke is poisonous so I personally would never try to cook it He claims that it is also nutritious but once it has been boiled and re boiled a few times and sueezed to death I think the vitamins and minerals went down the drain in the sink And as far as I am concerned you can throw the poke down it as well We have it growing here so I just cut it down and throw it in a compost pile She also makes crackling cornbread which could be good I believe crackling meat is pork fat and Alexa thinks so too You cut it into 2 inch cubes fry it until the cubes are golden in color and add the cubes to the cornbread recipe Yum You won t need butter on it as the fat is enough Then I think you use the left over fat to fry other foods I think it is then called lard And these days lard is in vogue I bought a small jar of it to cook with and when it came in the mail I realized that I had paid 28 for a small amount of lard I mean 28 for 14 oz of pig fat organic Never again The lard at the grocery store was cheap but it was partially hydrogenated Not good His stories are hard to reproduce here as there is no plot to this book just laugh out loud stories Example A woman shoots her abusive husband Well that doesn t sound funny but it was And I don t know how this story has anything to do with food except that his false teeth were destroyed in the process so he would have to gum his food See I kind of ruined that story so I can t tell you any instead what I am going to do is tell my own stories and kind of mix his mom s recipes with my ownOne of his mother s recipes is Sweet Potato Cobbler What No way Cobbler is all about berries or peaches It is not about food that you dig up from the ground I have a delicious recipe for Sweet Potato Pie which crust is an acceptable one It has a Chantilly Cream Topping as in alcohol in the whipped cream real whipping cream not fake Other than this recipe of mine sweet potatoes should only be served with real butter on top And I have just learned that the skin is delicious as well To think that I used to give the skin to our dog Bragg s mom also made Potato Salad as well Her recipe didn t sound good and I must say I can tell what a recipe will taste like just by reading its ingredients This ability comes with age While I will never claim that my mom was the best cook I will make the claim that her potato salad and her macaroni salad were the best I have ever had And so was her pot roast I have tried to make these dishes but I could never get either right She used Miracle Whip in her salad and I always use mayonnaise which could be the problem and I have never tried to correct this habit Plus she never measured anything I wrote down her recipe one day but I had to guess at it As a result I could never get the recipe correct I could never get the pot roast right either and I had the amounts of the ingredients correct as in one box of onion soup mix My husband does all the cooking and he used her pot roast recipe and it is as good as hers Go figure I nominate him as the best cook in the world because well he is He takes any recipe he finds and makes it better Did I tell you that he used to be a cook at Rose s Landing in Morro Bay CA He thinks that that was the name of the restaurant But he was not a chef just that it is in his DNA Well I digressed Anyway these were the only two dishes that I loved that my mom made and she didn t begin making them until she remarried when I was maybe 16 I don t recall what she made when I was younger than 8 At least she was great at making sweets ie cookies and cakes Just after my mom s divorce we had the worst cook preparing our meals I thought it was Mom that fed us horrible meals that I will tell you about shortly Then when I asked my older sister Jeanette to help me in remembering these meals she said that she made dinner for us and she didn t know how to cook Mom never taught any of us girls how to cook You see Jeanette told our mom that she would uit high school and take care of us if Mom left our dad She was 15 or so had finished her sopho year She did this so Mom could go to work in order to take care of us financially It was good that Jeanette had made friends in high school friends that remained in her life for all these years If she had not had these friends she would have gone crazy with the three of us a brother me and a little baby sister Well as she said she could not cook Here is what she fed usHot dogs and Pork n Beans in a can hot dogs in sauerkraut SpaghettiOs fried hash patties from a can liver with mashed potatoes and canned peas on the side Creamed tuna or something else She claims it was always hash on toast canned tamales hamburger patties Potato Cakes made by mixing mashed potatoes with flour and eggs then made into patties and fried And I remember those Gawd awful black eyed peas You name it if it came out of a can she could cook it But she knew how to fry liver Yuck Well she also made chocolate chip cookies which we all loved She would make hers large and I would feel cheated not realizing that I could grab two and they would then be eual to her large one And don t let me forget to tell you about our taffy pulls and other homemade candySo when Mom remarried we were done with Jeanette s cooking but then she had married and left us anyway Still I and my other siblings will always praise her for uitting school and taking care of us which allowed us all to get away from a bad situation I learned over three months ago that canned tamales still taste good not great but good But I never could learn to like liver I used to hide it in a napkin when Jeanette served it to us Then I would go to the bathroom and flush it down the toilet Or I would throw it under the table for my dog who thought it was delicious I even tried to mix it in the potatoes but it only made the potatoes taste funny Scattering it on the plate to make it look like I had eaten most of it didn t work well either I mostly had to eat itYet how come she knew how to cook liver when everything else was in cansHere is a tidbit that I want to add before I forget When my husband and I were in Puerto Rico we ate at a wonderful restaurant in Luuillo I think I have the town correct We tried many restaurants in the area but we did not like the food Well this restaurant had the best hamburgers so we ate there often always buying the hamburgers No one would tell us what made them taste great When I came home I met a woman who used to live in Puerto Rico and we became friends She suggested I put Sazon spice on the hamburgers So I found it on and now my husband makes the best hamburgers in the world just like those in Luuillo BeachHere s an anecdote about my mom Every time any of us kids came to visit her in later years she would always serve her macaroni salad One year when we all came to visit one of us said where s the macaroni salad She flatly stated I didn t feel like making it Wow What a blow She had had just finished reading Wayne Dyer s Pulling Your Own Strings We all hate Wayne Dyer nowAnd last of all My mom made great cakes but always from a cake mix and always with a tablespoon of oil added to the mix to make it moist I loved her broiled topping cake pineapple upside down and spice cakes but best of all were her chocolate cake with chocolate frosting Sometimes she would add black walnuts on top and this really made it delicious All of us kids were sitting around the table and Jerry our brother from her second marriage brought out her chocolate cake While we were eating it he said I just realized that this is her last cake We all stopped eating and became silent
