Doc Bill is known for his love of food. But he also has a love for  farming, fishing, studying the history of food and cooking.  And dining at various restaurants is a big part of how he experiences culture and destinations he visits.

Doc Bill has been cooking and creating great recipes for over 30 years.  He has written two cookbooks – Gourmet Southern Appalachian, The Foods of Georgia’s Barrier Islands (Co-authored with Cornelia Bailey and Yvonne Grovner) and editor of Cherokee Cooking From the Mountains & Gardens to the Table (authors Nancy and Tony Plemmons). His cookbook – Gourmet Southern Appalachian Cooking has become a favorite of chefs eager to explore the abundance of wild and flavorful ingredients growing in the Appalachian foothills of North Georgia.  And, the Cherokee cookbook highlights not only recipes but Indian lore with great stories of day-to-day life and culture of the proud Cherokee people.  This book too has become highly sought after by chefs seeking to learn more about the ingredients used in Native American cooking.
