From the Native Americans, settlers learned to identify wild greens such as creases, fiddleheads, lamb's quarters, poke, purslane, ramps, and watercress. However, wild meat and animal fats were more important to the pioneer diet than greens. Wild game remained abundant well into the nineteenth century. D. Smythe toured the region and in his book, A Tour of the United States of America, said that he saw wild turkeys in flocks of 5,000. However, to supplement wild game, even the early settlers raised pork and beef that, for most of the year, could forage in the wilds.
In short, the chef transformed the simple bean cake into a multi-layered, mixed-textured, complex dish with visual appeal. Today, while they usually do not announce their heritage (they may fear the hillbilly stereotype), talented Appalachian chefs have been successful in cities from Pittsburgh to Charlotte. In The Encyclopedia of Appalachia, Jean Haskell noted that many of these chefs cook in a style inspired by traditions from Appalachian home cooking. They add flourishes to green beans, fried potatoes, and boiled beans.
These first settlers also brought food traditions that persist to this day. Pork, because it was easily preserved, was a valued frontier food. Farmers killed mature pigs, laden with lard, in late fall or winter. They boiled the fat for use in cooking and soap making, and they salted and dry-cured the meat, boiled bone and head parts to make souse, and simmered pigs' feet for soup. The pork lard that settlers used on the frontier dominated mountain cooking until the end of the twentieth century, and today, pork remains a favorite meat.
