Evening Shade Cookbook: Recipes from Burt Reynolds and the Folks of Evening Shade

This one takes a little poking and searching to find, but there is a hardcover edition that has a picture of the cast of Evening Shade on the front, and a Volume II that includes recipes from Hilary and Bill Clinton as well. The first volume was published in the early 90’s.  Evening Shade was a television show in the early 1990s that aired on CBS, about an ex-Pittsburgh Steeler (Reynolds) who returns to rural Arkansas to coach high school football.

 

 

 

We don’t currently have this copy on Biblio, but man, it would be a great find! It would be an excellent addition to any Biblio want list.
