Edna Lewis, the African American granddaughter of freed slaves, grew up on a farm in Freetown, Virginia. Over her lifetime, she became known as one of the keepers of history, tradition and culture of true Southern cooking. Her writing and her recipes continue to guide chefs and cooks committed to using fresh, seasonal, regional food sources, no matter where they live. After moving from rural Virginia to Depression-era New York, she tasted freedom from racism for the first time, joined the Communist Party and became a renowned chef, serving the glitterati of art, theater, and literature. She wrote of her life and her recipes in several popular cookbooks. In 1989, she met young chef Scott Peacock. They became good friends and wrote a cookbook together. As Miss Lewis grew frail, she and Scott moved in together, caring for each other as best friends and colleagues.
