The Red Truck Bakery Farmhouse Cookbook

Brian Noyes, founder of the beloved Red Truck Bakery in Marshall, Virginia, and author of the Red Truck Bakery Cookbook, presents more than 95 all-new, comforting recipes celebrating ingredients and traditions from the bakery's home on the edge of the Shenandoah Valley and the Blue Ridge mountains.

With small-town charm, an emphasis on local, seasonal produce, and country comfort inspiration from the 170-year-old farmhouse where the bakery began, The Red Truck Bakery Farmhouse Cookbook features Brian’s favorite savory recipes and old-time classics from family, friends, and the bakery archives.

This is the food that Brian cooks at home as well as for the bakery's thousands of customers nationwide—plus recipes for favorite Red Truck Bakery dishes that have not been shared before.

Recipes include:

  • Potato & Pesto Flatbread
  • Corn Crab Cakes with Jalapeño Mayonnaise
  • Mid-July Tomato Pie
  • Pork Tenderloin with Rosemary and Blueberries
  • Sweet Potato and Poblano Enchiladas
  • Lexington Bourbon Cake
  • Virginia Peanut Pie
  • Caramel Cake with Pecans (which Garden & Gun magazine called "the perfect Southern dessert")

For those who are eating vegetarian or vegan, there are plenty of plant-based options, like a vegan and gluten-free Coffee Cake, Carrot & Leek Pot Pies, Mushroom-Ricotta Lasagne with Port Sauce, and the Bakery's beloved “Beetloaf” Sandwiches.

About Brian Noyes

While the art director of the Washington Post and Smithsonian magazine, Brian Noyes baked pies and breads on weekends in his Virginia farmhouse and sold them out of an old red truck he bought from Tommy Hilfiger. When a New York Times story sent 57,000 people to his website in one day, he left publishing to launch the Red Truck Bakery in a 1921 Esso filling station.

The bakery now has two locations, ships thousands of baked goods nationwide, and has earned praise from Oprah Winfrey and Barack Obama.

He is a member of the Southern Foodways Alliance and the James Beard Foundation.
