About the Author

A member of Relais & Chateaux, Blackberry Farm has won dozens of major awards for food, wine, service, and general excellence from Zagat, Travel + Leisure, Conde Nast Traveler, and Southern Living, and is frequently ranked the #1 small hotel in the United States. Proprietor SAM BEALL grew up on Blackberry Farm, which was founded by his parents, Kreis and Sandy Beall. After attending the California Culinary Academy, Sam Beall apprenticed at the French Laundry, the Ritz-Carlton, Cowgirl Creamery, and Chateau Potelle. He oversees the entire farmstead, from its restaurants to its heirloom gardens to its honey house.

One of the most recognized and respected food writers today, MOLLY O'NEILL, long the food columnist for the New York Times, is the author of three cookbooks, including the best-selling New York Cookbook, A Well-Seasoned Appetite, and The Pleasure of Your Company, as well as a memoir, Mostly True: Food, Family and Baseball. She hosted the PBS series Great Food and is the editor of the critically-acclaimed "American Food Writing." Twice nominated for the Pulitzer Prize, she has won the Julia Child/IACP Award for cookbooks and was awarded three James Beard citations for books, journalism and television as well as the society's Lifetime Achievement Award.


"Sam Beall's heartfelt words and the beautiful images took me back to my first visit--to the Bealls' incredible hospitality and the delicious meals they nurtured us with. I am excited that Blackberry Farm continues to evolve into an idyllic destination, grounded by its own sense of place and history."
--Thomas Keller, The French Laundry

"Hospitality, generosity, authenticity, quality, family...Life has stopped and our stress disappears at Blackberry Farm. The food and wine reveal the best of nature. Happiness is what can be found here."
--Alain Ducasse, Alain Ducasse at the Plaza Athénée and Louis XV - Alain Ducasse

"Like Blackberry Farm itself, this book is a celebration of the South and a family dream, deliciously realized. It will take you in, enfold you in a warm embrace and bring you home again to the nurturing hills of Tennessee."
--Patrick O'Connell, The Inn at Little Washington

"If the saying 'God is in the details' rings true, then he may reside along the green hills in the shadows of the Smoky Mountains at Blackberry Farm. The Beall family has created the ultimate destination for lovers of food, wine, gracious service and the infinite 'nice things' that make living grand."
--Frank Stitt, Highlands Bar and Grill

"I admire the Blackberry Farm ethic -- the reverence for place and people, the dedication to artisanal excellence, the trust in long-held tradition, and the belief that, as Wendell Berry once put it, eating is an 'agricultural act.'"
--John T Edge, writer and educator
