Hard-living, larger than life, beloved in the bluegrass world: that's not all there is to J.D Rhynes. He also just happens to be an excellent cook. For 25 years J.D. has shared recipes, stories, and philosophy with readers of the Bluegrass Breakdown, the newspaper of the California Bluegrass Association. J.D.’s Bluegrass Kitchen is a handsome illustrated cookbook that delivers a heaping helping of J.D.’s tasty recipes, colorful yarns, and advice on the art of living. 

Best of all, the book comes with an audio CD that contains a selection of J.D.'s recipes set to music and recorded by some of your favorite bluegrass performers, including Rhonda Vincent, Doyle Lawson, Ron Thomason, Kathy Kallick, Laurie Lewis, Larry Stephenson, Leroy "Mack" McNees, and more!

After production costs are recouped, sales of J.D.'s Bluegrass Kitchen will be a perennial source of fundraising power for the California Bluegrass Association, a lively community dedicated to spreading the love of Bluegrass music among people of all ages.

J.D.’s Bluegrass Kitchen is due out in early 2015. You can help make the book come to life! Reserve your advance copy, and choose from a variety of other premiums, by pledging a donation.

Risks and challenges

We've got a crack team of volunteers for the various components:
- Editing the recipes and essays
- Photographing the delicious test products
- Recording the songs
- Setting up book parties to celebrate the finished product!
We'll keep you posted on our progress as we get each of these things done.
We can always use more helpers! Get in touch with us at ted@tedtedted.com if you're moved to join in the fun.
