Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cooking has always followed the seasons in the South. This has led to so many longstanding food traditions: strawberry jam in spring, apple cobbler in fall, fried green tomatoes in summer, pickled beets in winter, and the list goes on.
 
With more than 800 delicious Southern recipes for over 85 different ingredients, there are plenty of options when your garden is plentiful and your freezer is stocked. From Almonds to Zucchini, these delightful recipes are organized by ingredient to highlight the seasonality of the recipes.
 
Tammy Algood has been cooking Southern food all her life. Along with this complete collection of her favorite down-home recipes, she has also included some contemporary dishes as well: Lemon Butter Asparagus, Merlot Brownies, Pralines and Cream Cheesecake, Southern Chicken Cordon Bleu, and Mixed Mushroom Tart.

Review:

"Even readers who've never crossed the Mason-Dixon line will appreciate Algood's voluminous collection of southern staples in this soon-to-be classic. Arranged alphabetically, Algood patiently explains how to properly prepare 'a mess of peas' and can like a pro, and shares the significance of regional favorites, offering recipes for Red Velvet Cake, peach pie, banana pudding, Oysters Bienville, chicken fried steak, and countless other southern staples. Iconic ingredients like Coca-Cola find new uses; apple cider not only appears in Apple Cider Cupcakes with Apple Cider Cream Cheese Frosting but also mixes with honey, a jalapeno, and apple wine to create a glaze for grilled shrimp; and peaches are used in everything from beignets to soup to salsa. Algood takes an egalitarian approach to barbecue (offering options for vinegar, ketchup, and mayonnaise-based sauces without taking sides), biscuits (22 recipes), and gravy (14 recipes). Surprises like blackberry bars, Virginia Peanut Coleslaw, and Macaroni & Cheese with Thyme Bacon Crumbs will stimulate even the most jaded palate. Missing are suggestions for meal combinations and photographs, a minor complaint considering the book's scope. Those longing for a singular reference of the many facets of Southern cuisine will be hard pressed to find a better collection.
