Southern food is less about any particular ingredient and more about a state of mind.  Appalachian cuisine is deeply rooted in our heritage – born through centuries of “making do,” never wasting and seeing delicious opportunities everywhere.

These recipes are a compilation of Buy Haywood’s Cooking Local Project (2012-2013) and Cooking Local Together (2014) events.  Both projects aimed to foster healthy eating and increase the sale of locally-grown fruits and vegetables in WNC through expanded knowledge of fresh food preparation and nutrition education.

Enjoy this collection of recipes from local chefs, agripreneurs, Buy Haywood staff & volunteers!  These are wonderful menu ideas featuring local in-season fruits, vegetables, herbs and other delicious Haywood County products.  Also, visit our Farm Fresh Blog for other recipes and seasonal menu ideas.
