When I heard last spring that Amy Rogers had launched a foodie website affiliated with the NPR station in Charlotte, I had to get in on the act. I remember Amy from Novello Press, when she compiled a delightful cookbook, Hungry for Home including snippets and recipes from writers across the South. I was honored to have two of my short pieces invited to that distinguished table.
Now Amy’s involved with WFAEats, a clever take on the WFAE call letters. Here’s a website all about food in the greater Charlotte area. I can’t think of cooking without thinking of my mother, a woman who truly hated the chore. As her antithesis, I’ve ventured into kitchen where few dare to tread actually hunting and frying my own wild morels, conquered the pressure canner and last but not least, learning to like a livermush sandwich with slaw on top.
To prove WFAEats is all about diversity, they’ve posted my essays on lunchmeat and livermush, bless them. See for yourself at http://wfae.org/topic/wfaeats
