I was a little saddened at the death of Don Knott's this week. Like many people, I am quite fond of The Andy Griffith Show. I ran across this book that lists in chronological order 72 episodes in which food plays an important part. Aunt Bea's Mealtime in Mayberry would be the perfect gift for the classic-television loving gourmand. The following is the book description - The authors have carefully chosen more than seventy-five scenes from the show in which eating plays a big part. Each scene comes alive with eye-popping black-and-white or color photographs accompanied by corresponding dialogue and recipes for the food from the show.
Included are everything from a casual lunch with Andy and Barney at the courthouse to a sit-down dinner with the Darlings at Andy's house. Aunt Bee's Mealtime in Mayberry is a tasty way to remember one of the most popular television shows of all time. With more than 100 photographs, most of which have never been published, and 150 recipes, this full-color, hardcover gift book makes a wonderful remembrance of America's friendliest town.
