For nearly two decades, Dairy Hollow House—a country inn and restaurant tucked into the Ozark Mountain resort town of Eureka Springs, Arkansas—welcomed guests from all over the world.

Although the famed inn is now closed, you can still enjoy the satisfying and life-affirming dishes by the James Beard Award–winning writer/restaurateur Crescent Dragonwagon in this thirtieth-anniversary edition of Dairy Hollow House Soup & Bread, a story rich cookbook as gutsy and distinctive as a steaming bowl of Gumbo Zeb.

“I love the food, the stories, and the passion so apparent in Dairy Hollow House Soup & Bread. My only regret is that I didn’t discover the book when it first came out. I have no doubt that I’d be a better cook and host if I’d grown up with a copy, but now I am happily making up for lost time. This is a terrific book.”
—Steve Sando, founder of Rancho Gordo

“One of my all-time favorite cookbooks. Crescent’s wit and wisdom shine through, and the recipes are as timely and delicious today as they were when I first cooked them.”
—Nathalie Dupree, coauthor of Mastering the Art of Southern Cooking

“Brilliant in its simplicity. A prime example of what a talented cook can do given a firm sense of place and a feel for its products.”
Village Voice
