The Regulator welcomes Georgann Eubanks, author of The Month of Their Ripening: North Carolina Heritage Foods through the Year, for a reading and book signing.
Georgann Eubanks begins in January with the most ephemeral of southern ingredients—snow—to witness Tar Heels making ice cream. In March, she takes a midnight canoe ride on the Trent River in search of shad, a bony fish with a savory history. In November, she visits a Chatham County sawmill where the possums are always first into the persimmon trees. We also learn about softshell crabs, scuppernongs, sarvis berries, oysters and more. Eubanks takes readers on a flavorful journey across the state. The Month of Their Ripening makes a nice gift for a happy and tasty new year!
Georgann Eubanks is a writer, Emmy-winning documentarian, and popular speaker. She is the author of Literary Trails of Eastern North Carolina, Literary Trails of the North Carolina Piedmont, and Literary Trails of the North Carolina Mountains.
