Description: "It would not be hard to bake biscuits, he thought. He had sat at the kitchen table hundreds of times and watched her at the cabinet, her hands flashing over the dough, and it did not seem a hard thing to do." 

With those words, Atlanta author lorry Kay lends his own brand or culinary wisdom to one or the tastiest reads ever to grace the kitchen or the coffee table. 

True Grits: Tall tales and Recipes from the New South is filled with haute- and home-style cuisine from Atlanta, Georgia, a city now as well known for its diversity as its hospitality. 

Make no mistake about it. Though True Grits includes recipes as traditionally Southern as Fried Chicken and Buttermilk Biscuits, this is New South rare all the way. There's Rosemary Mushroom Grits, for example. And a marvelous Marinated Veal Chops with Vidalia Onion Compote. 

Recipes have been gathered from Atlanta's most respected chefs, caterers, and every-day cooks. Most or the rare reflects the many and diverse cultures that now call Atlanta home, and much or it is lighter, healthier, and easier to prepare -- musts for an international city with the world on its doorstep. 

Designed to introduce you to Atlanta s people as well as her cuisine, True Grits also contains essays from some of the Souths most distinctive voices, from Anne Rivers Siddons and Bill Diehl to Eugenia Price and Lewis Grizzard. 

Whether you are a born Southerner, a transplant, or an out of town guest, True Grits is a must-have. 

It just might be the best ever hard-bound tour through the hearts -- and kitchens -- of the South.
