Meet the Neelys: Pat and Gina, husband-and-wife team, hosts of their own television show, and proprietors of the celebrated Memphis and Nashville eateries, Neelys Bar-B-Que.

The Neelys down-home approach to cooking has earned them the highest accolades from coast to coast. It has also won them millions of viewers on the Food Network. Simply put, the Neelys are all about good food and good times. In this, their eagerly awaited debut cookbook, the Neelys share the delicious food they have been cooking up for years both at home and in their restaurants.

Pat and Gina hail from families with a boundless love of cooking and bedrock traditions of sharing meals. At the Neelys, mealtime is family time, and that means no stinting on “the sauce.” Indeed, thats one of the Neely secrets: the liberal application of barbeque sauce to almost anything—spaghetti, nachos, salad, you name it. Of course, there are other secrets as well, and you will find them all in the pages of Down Home with the Neelys, along with more than 120 mouthwatering recipes.

Here are the tried-and-true southern recipes that have been passed down from one Neely generation to the next, including many of their signature dishes, such as Barbeque Deviled Eggs, Florida Coast Pickled Shrimp, Pats Wings of Fire, Ginas Collard Greens, Grandma Jeans Potato Salad, Nanas Southern Gumbo, Memphis-sized Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Slaw, Get Yo Man Chicken, and Sock-It-to-Me Cake. Certainly, no self-respecting southerner would dream of offering a meal to a guest without a proper drink, so Pat and Gina have included some of their favorite libations here, too.

The Neelys work, laugh, love, and play harder than any family youll ever meet. Their love for good food is infectious, and in Down Home with the Neelys, they bring their heavenly inspired cooking down to earth for all to share.

Review:

"Husband-and-wife television personalities with their own Tennessee chain of barbecue joints, the Neelys unveil their first cookbook, full of 120 recipes that pull back the curtain on their award-winning seasonings, sauce, and fixings. Emphasizing their personal story and family recipes, this cookbook is brimming with down-home personality ('Girl, my favorite nut is the pecan!') and dishes that are 'simple, stylish, and not too fussy.' Those include tweaked standards like Warm Artichoke and Collard Greens Dip, Southern Crostinis featuring pimento cheese, Broccoli Cheddar Cornbread, and sweet potatoes with Marshmallow Streusel. Entrees include the expected (Pat's Wings of Fire, Spicy Fried Chicken, Old-Fashioned Glazed Ham, barbecued ribs, chicken and fish), the unexpected (Barbecue Spaghetti, Deep-Fried Pork Chops) and the playful in-between (like Get Yo' Man Chicken). They don't skimp on desserts either, including Momma Neely's 'calling card,' Sock-It-to-Me Cake, a yellow cake with streusel filling perfect for ending a meal or starting the day. Family stories, wise sourcing tips and plenty of commentary from Pat and Gina make this a warm, welcome addition to any cooking library's Southern shelf."

Synopsis:

The long-awaited debut cookbook from the celebrated husband-and-wife team, hosts of their own number one-rated Food Network show.

Pat and Gina Neely both hail from families with bedrock traditions of sharing meals, a boundless love of cooking and great food, and no fear of good, hard work to make it all happen. That's what has earned their Memphis restaurant the reputation as one of the best darn rib joints in the world.

Now they've given us a cookbook brimming with tried and truly delicious southern recipes that have been passed down from one generation to the next. The Neelys share all their secrets, not the least important of which is their liberal application of barbeque sauce to almost anything: spaghetti, nachos, salad--you name it. Here are more than one hundred mouth-watering recipes, including many of their signature dishes, such as Barbeque Deviled Eggs, Florida Coast Pickled Shrimp, Spicy Corn Chowder, Nana's Southern Gumbo, Sweet and Spicy Slaw, Get Yo' Man Chicken, Sock-It-to-Me Cake, and a few knock-your-socks-off libations to boot.

The Neelys' love for good food is infectious, and here, in their first book, they bring their heavenly inspired cooking down to earth for all to share.

Virginia Campbell, December 17, 2011 (view all comments by Virginia Campbell)
I very much enjoy watching the Neelys' cooking show on the Food Network. Pat Neely's gentle humor is the perfect counterpoint for the spirit and sass of his wife, Gina. These folks really know how to cook, and they cook much more than just the BBQ for which they are famous. There is a wide variety of recipes in this book. Food that is prepared with love and intuition, and then well-seasoned with spices and flavorings. Some of the recipes and cooking methods are very similar to my own family's cooking traditions like "Lorine's Brown Flour Gravy", "Sweet and Spicy Slaw", "Chocolate Chip Muffins", "Southern Creamed Corn", and "Molasses Baked Beans". Then there are wonderfully different recipes like "Crab Cakes with Lime Mayonnaise", "Turkey, Brie, and Cranberry Panini", and "Deep-Fried Pork Chops and Quick Vegetable Soup". The desserts are all tempting, but the "Southern Red Velvet Cake" is spectacular. The photo shows a three-layer cake that looks to be three stories high! The Neelys own and operate several famously successful BBQ restaurants. In this book, they share their recipes for BBQ seasoning and BBQ sauce and many tips and techinques for preparing mouth-watering barbequed foods. Just as compelling as all the wonderful food is the amazing real-life love story of Pat and Gina Neely, and how their two families work together and support each other in their business. Pat and his brothers started the BBQ business with hard work, skill, and determination. Gina and Pat were high school sweethearts who went their separate ways and married others after graduation. Ten years later, they met up again, and a high school reunion turned into a reunion romance. When Gina joined Pat in the family business, a match was made in heaven, and a loving partnership was formed. Bobby and Jamie Deen featured the Neelys on their program "Road Tasted", and then their mother, Paula Deen, featured Pat and Gina on "Paula's Party". TV history was made, and two Food Network stars were born. Great story, great food, inspiring people!
