I have a few beefs with this cookbook. It is authentic southern cuisine. But first of all the author does not
teach the reader how to make stock. Now no self respecting southern cook would use store bought broth
when you can have much deeper and better tasting home made stock. The author suggest several recipes
that you use store bought broth which is expensive and provides little flavor compared to stock.
The second beef is common to a lot of Kindle cookbooks; Most people who really enjoy cooking want to
see pics done with professional photography and there was none in this book, nor was their nutritional
The third beef is that for buttermilk recipes, she suggests using only a half a tsp of baking soda. You get
much lighter biscuits when you use 2 tsps of baking soda. It is the chemical reaction between the acidic
buttermilk and the alkaline baking soda that causes rising.
And finally, her recipe for cheesy mashed potatoes is flawed. She suggests putting chilled milk and cream
cheese in with hot boiled potatoes. The combination of the very cold and the very hot causes the mashed
potatoes to be GUMMY. If you want light airy mashed potatoes, you must heat the milk and the cream cheese
just below boiling and then mix the two hot ingredients together. Any good southern cook would know this.

We are all familiar with foods that are particularly “Southern” – fried chicken, jambalaya, collard greens, biscuits, and pecan pie, to name only a few favorites. All foods develop from a combination of the tastes and traditions of its populations, together with ingredients that are available in the area. Africa, Spain, France, and Scotland have all contributed to the development of Southern food as we think of it today. Each region brought its own ingredients and cooking methods, and combined them with the fresh local foods to create an irresistible cuisine we all love.
