Interview With Sam Beall, author of the Blackberry Farm Cookbook

Listen to the story.

Today on Around and About, a cookbook based on recipes from the kitchen of a world-class Tennessee restaurant.

Sam Beall joins us.  He is a trained chef.  He’s the proprietor of Blackberry Farm ,a place that’s also a restaurant and a country inn serving foothills cuisine.  The philosophy of the place is “farm to table”; food grown on the farm is prepared and served right there at the restaurant.

A 2004 Zagat survey named the location as America’s number one small inn.

And Sam Beall was recently a guest on the Martha Stewart show, demonstrating his Blackberry Farm style cooking.

The book has received a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly, who called it “big, bold and beautiful… a reflection of the good life.”

The book has also been a number-one Amazon best seller.

Beall, who spoke to us during a signing at Rock Point Books, says he is a little surprised by the attention.
