The Hemlock Inn Cookbook

Originally written in 1982 by Ella Jo Shell and then reprinted in 1996, Recipes from Our Front Porch has sold nearly 15,000 copies. Revised and edited, this third edition has been put together by Ella Jo’s daughter, Lainey.

Inside you will find memories of growing up at an inn, raising children there, and embracing its lifestyle. But more than that, you will discover an abundance of recipes handed down from generation to generation, served bountifully on lazy Susan tables at Hemlock Inn in Bryson City, North Carolina.
