Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This delightful cookbook celebrates the glories of southern baking, with 300 recipes for the breads, biscuits, cakes, pies, cookies, and sweets that have been the pride of southern cooks for generations.

From his first chapter on cornmeal--with recipes for dumplings, hushpuppies, and four styles of spoonbread--to his delicious array of desserts--including persimmon pudding, lemon chess pie, and pecan cake with caramel icing--Bill Neal interweaves fascinating bits of culinary history with a native's knowledge of the cooking secrets of the rural South. He demystifies beaten biscuits, revives such southern standbys as baps and bannocks, and freshens up old favorites such as peach cobbler and fruitcake. Passing on the traditions of the southern kitchen, Neal pays tribute to the richness of the region's heritage.

Biscuits, Spoonbread, and Sweet Potato Pie was first published in 1990.

Synopsis:

A classic cookbook from the one of the South's most beloved chefs, the late Bill Neal. This exploration of the rich southern baking and dessert traditions contains almost 300 recipes, many with headnotes offering preparation tips, information about the origins of the dish, and anecdotes and quotes drawn from southern food lore and literature.

Synopsis:

This "authoritative journey through the baking and related confectionery of the South" ("The New York Times Book Review") celebrates the glories of Southern baking with 300 recipes for the breads, biscuits, cakes, pies, cookies, and sweets that have been the pride of Southern cooks for generations.
