Description: Southern cuisine has a tradition and charm all its own, with specialties as varied as the South itself. And, although tradition is certainly evident in these pages, there is nothing old-fashioned about The Art of Southern Cooking. Even the "old family secret recipes," many of which appear here for the first time, are all adapted for easy preparation in today's kitchens.
Here you'll find interesting ideas for dishes with a well-seasoned Southern touch such as Smoked Oyster and Corn Casserole, Crab Meat and Bacon Rolls, and Louisiana's spicy Shrimp Jambalaya, along with recipes for crisp Southern Fried Chicken, Baked Ham with Sweet Potatoes, and some mouth-watering sausage, ham and cheese casseroles.
The chapters on vegetables and relishes cover everything from traditional black-eyed peas, green beans, and turnip greens boiled wtih a piece of bacon or ham, to a flavorful Sweet Potato Souffle and juicy Pickled Peaches and Pickled Watermelon Rind. And the recipes for hot breads include such old favorites as Corn Bread, Hush Puppies, and Sweet Potato Biscuits.
No book of Southern recipes would be complete without a section on desserts, and all the favorites are here, including rich and sweet Pecan and Scupernong Pies, traditional Christmas Fruit Cake, and a Lane Cake that calls for your best bottle of bourbon.
Remarkably complete and authentically Southern, the Art of Southern Cooking is a book for novices and gourmets, and anyone else who would like to know more about this unique American cuisine.
