The Book

Ozark Grannies’ Secrets LLC, a new Missouri Ozarks company, has published a book by Cygnet Brown and Kerry Kelley who are spilling the beans about foraged foods with the release of their first book Ozark Grannies’ Secrets, Gourmet Weeds. Gourmet Weeds provides information about forageable foods, recipes using those foods, and stories you might hear around an Ozark dinner table.

Gourmet Weeds shares information about forageable greens, fruits, vegetables, and nuts recipes and stories about the Ozarks and is sure to resonate with millennials and Gen Z audiences who want to learn the skills of past generations and how to apply them today. This book offers a new approach to Ozark cooking and foraging and how to easily incorporate them into everyday cooking using everyday ingredients.

The book separates itself from other books of its kind in that it is written in a narrative format that makes this cookbook a one-of-a-kind story of the Ozarks, making it entertaining and useful.

This book has a folksy writing style, stories, and recipes, it is a fun read.
