Enter to Win a Cookbook by Chef Mee McCormick of Pinewood Kitchen & Mercantile

53 Comments By 

From being raised on food stamps and battling autoimmune diseases to culinary school, her own restaurant, and now releasing her second cookbook, Mee McCormick has come a long way with her relationship with food.

During her time at a professional culinary program, McCormick learned intensive allergy cooking training. That training has allowed her to offer a fully inclusive table at her restaurant, Pinewood Kitchen & Mercantile in Hickman County, where everyone can enjoy Southern comfort food without worry of food allergies and dietary restrictions.

McCormick’s second cookbook, My Pinewood Kitchen: A Southern Culinary Cure, features more than 130 comfort food recipes that may heal stomach pains, reduce inflammation and reverse chronic autoimmune diseases. For more information on the restaurant and cookbook, visit pinewoodkitchenandmercantile.com.


We’ve partnered with McCormick to give a copy of her new cookbook to one lucky reader. Enter below for your chance to win!

(Note: This book was featured as a giveaway in our Winter 2020-21 issue. The giveaway has now ended. Thanks to all who participated.)

    I am a cookbook collector and noticing that you are a gluten-free establishment and we just discovered that my one year old grandson is gluten intolerant makes me want to research more about this type of cooking.

    Local flavor can only be found in local cookbooks. They are my “go-to” reference in my kitchen’s library. On line? No way. Recipes at my floured fingertips. No worry about messing up the keyboard.

    I would love this cookbook. I love to cook and host my family. My niece has food allergies, which leaves her out of enjoying some family favorites. I feel terrible when she can’t eat what I have cooked. This cookbook would be a god-send to both of us! She really wants to try new foods – and some old foods if they don’t make her sick.
