Collards, Turnip Greens, Comfort Food: Books to Feed & Soothe

Looking for inspiration? For comfort? Perhaps you're searching for something familiar but with a new spin--a twist of the future?

These are my recommendations for cookbooks with a twist. They all tell stories. They all inspire. They all share wonderful recipes, something familiar with a bit of something new or unique. They adapt. They heal. They taste awfully good! Interestingly enough, although the authors' backgrounds are different, all of these books feature Southern cooking.
