I started working in restaurant kitchens because I wanted to turn that experience into a career in food writing. I guess then, Deep Run Roots, my first cookbook, is the culmination of that pursuit. Part story, part history, part recipes, I’d like to think Deep Run Roots is much more than a cookbook. And I hope it’s the first of many books like it, I get to write.
