At its most fundamental, food nurtures fellowship.
Food is a meeting place where people from all walks of life can gather and find equity. Food is a blessing. As John Carter Cash writes in The Cash and Carter Family Cookbook: Recipes and Recollections From Johnny and June’s Table, his family, beginning with his grandparents Ray and Carrie Cash, knew this well.
“Through it all, there were two things that remained steadfast. One was the family’s faith in God, the other was suppertime. … But no matter the food upon the table, no time was more important than the daily gatherings at suppertime.” Thus begins a touching collection of stories and recipes that were passed down the dinner table. Alongside cheese grits and Brunswick stew are the memories and reminiscences of the tunesmiths and movie stars with whom the Cash family broke bread. Get a taste of the favorite foods served at the table of arguably country music’s first families.
