Edna Lewis on Coffee

“The smell of coffee cooking was a reason for growing up, because children were never allowed to have it and nothing haunted the nostrils all the way out to the barn as did the aroma of boiling coffee. The decision about coffee was clear and definite and a cook’s ability to make good coffee was one of her highest accomplishments. Mother made real good coffee but some mornings my father would saddle the horse and ride more than a mile up the road to have his second cup with his cousin Sally, who made the best coffee ever.”

~ Edna Lewis (1916-2006),  Renowned African-American chef, teacher, and author who helped refine the American view of Southern cooking. From “The Taste Of Country Cooking”
