The Gathering Place

Johnnie Sue Myers is a Cherokee Elder whose passion for preserving her culinary heritage has culminated in her first cookbook: The Gathering Place — Traditional Cherokee DishesAnd Southern Appalachian Cooking.

Her specialties are the preparation of wild game meats and the gathering and preparation of wild vegetables in the Cherokee and Southern Appalachian traditions.

She explains “My kitchen is ‘The Gathering Place’ where four generations of my family have gathered to share special events, deaths, births, weddings, graduations, super bowls; and each event took place with food prepared by me, with recipes that I created or were passed down by family members. The memories are priceless."
