After doing the research, meeting the people, doing the interviews, taking the photos, and making the recipes, I am happy to say, Savor Missouri: River Hill Country Food and Wine is lauching April 17! I am hoping that you won’t be able to resist Missouri’s great rivers— the Missouri, the Mississippi, and the Meramec—and take a trip to follow the waterways to wine trails, peaches, fresh honey, smoked meats, and more. Our state is a magnet for agri-tourism—irresistible and delicious—and Savor Missouri gives you travel stops for weekends or longer jaunts full of Missouri flavor.
In fact, I hope you find yourself standing on rolling land with breezes scented with berry. Pick a weekend and see for yourself the welcome in the eye of the owner of one of our state’s specialty meat shops, taste the flavor of the region with award-wining wines, and experience Missouri’s tasty eateries. While I was visiting specialty farms, cheese makers, breweries and relaxing wineries, I gathered fifty-plus recipes from restaurant chefs, farmers, winemakers and more. These producers of regional flavor are Missouri’s gems.
Here’s what they are saying:
"With this wonderful guide, you can take the time to fully engage your senses, pair these recipes with travel throughout the state, and enjoy all the beauty and tastes this great state has to offer."

"Savor Missouri celebrates the flavors of our region with family recipes from the people working the land. It takes you right up to the table of the people working to produce Missouri's abundant and delicious food and wine. It's a stand out read."
