The third Thursday community potluck cookbook: recipes and stories to celebrate the bounty of the moment
"Time at the table with good food in reach fosters community. That's the promise. From crowder peas with country ham and lemon herb vinaigrette to butternut squash and leek lasagna, from Chinese-Italian-American fortune cookies to Cara Cara orange marmalade, the recipes collected here fulfill that promise, drawing close a diverse assemblage of Nashville folk who understand how potlucks deliver both sacrament and sustenance."
John T Edge, director, the Southern Foodways Alliance and coeditor, Southern Foodways Alliance Community Cookbook
Every Third Thursday... Life is Delicious
Grab a plate. Pull up a chair. Good company. Great food. No rules. It's potluck.
When Nancy Vienneau started a casual potluck celebrating good food and goodwill, she had no idea it would be going strong five years later. The ever-changing group of diverse people who attend have one thing in common: a dedication to good food. As a result, every month, a non-scripted parade of seasonally inspired dishes appears--dishes that draw on ingredients from the participants' own gardens, their neighbors yards, or the farmers' market. These dishes celebrate their provenance and their history. Roasted tomato goat cheese tart with Tennessee Bradley tomatoes, Me-me's chocolate cake inherited from a beloved grandmother's recipe. Chicken baked with fresh plums from a neighbor's tree. Acorn squash filled with Southern sorghum and pecans. Pimiento cheese made with local farmstead cheddar. Crowder pea salad flecked with Benton's country ham.
Like a sourdough starter made from flour, yeast, and water, this simple get-together has grown into a lively, rich event full of interesting folks and food. Between these covers you'll find glorious dishes, heartfelt stories, plus tips and ideas for starting your own community potluck. Did someone say it's Thursday?

|display_description||"This is not your grandma's potluck. The cliche is unavoidable. At the third Thursday potluck, you won't find canned soup casseroles or whipped delite, as much as you may love them. What you will find instead is an array of dishes in sync with the season. Each month offers up an appropriate menu. July is for tomatoes; August for figs; December for gifts from the kitchen; February for staying warm. Gouda Risotto with Fresh Peas, Cider-Braised Pork with Pears, Crab Mac-and-Cheese, or Brown Butter Honey Cake, they each appear in their seasons at this lively community potluck. Hosted by a group of goodwill-wielding friends and strangers, the potluck's beneficiaries have one thing in common: a love of good food. The premise is simple; on the third Thursday of every month bring a seasonal fresh dish for sharing. The result is gloriously rich: new friends, fun, and good eats. Whether you're looking for instructions on assembling your own potluck (the first clue: no rules), or recipes for imaginative, honest dishes, whether it's for a group of six or thirty, the inspiration in this book will suit anyone who wants to celebrate good food and good neighbors."--|
