Your Stories: Kreis Beall and Blackberry Farm

An inn that has recently received accolade upon accolade is quietly nestled in the mountains in Walland, Tennessee.

It's a destination for the country's upper crust. And part of its charm? It is East Tennessee through and through. And so is Blackberry Farm's Founder Kreis Beall.

You never see Kreis Beall without her Jack Russell Terrier, Buddy Beall. Her pup is right on her heels as she walks the grounds of her family farm. And what an incredible farm it is.

Blackberry Farm creating "Foothills Cuisine"

There's a new cookbook from the folks over at Blackberry Farm.

This one is called The Foothills Cuisine of Blackberry Farm. It holds recipes from the chefs and artisans that make up the experience of the farm.

The book is also a lesson in how the people of the foothills used to live, and how people of today can learn to be self-sufficient, with simple recipes that you can make in your own kitchen. (Unless you live at my house where the kitchen is about as big as a postage stamp.)
