This Southern recipes cookbook from Bear Wallow Books has a collection of 48 old-fashioned recipes like spoon bread, and hush puppies. There are also 17 peach recipes like peach cobbler and peach Betty.
Southern recipes and cooking are known to be flavorful, rich tasting, and just downright good. This collection captures some of the best food of the South that has been enjoyed for centuries.
The best thing is you do not need to be from the South to enjoy these dishes. We have so many ingredients available to us in different parts of the country that you can recreate a favorite dish you enjoyed on a vacation tonight in the comfort of your own home. This cookbook also gives you the opportunity to try a new dish and experience a different part of our heritage.
If you are looking for some authentic Southern comfort foods; this cookbook is a good place to start. There are also historical notes sprinkled into the cookbook relating to histories of some of the recipes. I love to read about the histories of where some of our classic American heritage recipes came from, as it says so much about how the U.S. was built.
