This book has 40 step by step recipes that cover most of the traditional Southern foods that I learned how to cook from my Mother and Grandmother. However, I have adjusted them to use extra virgin olive oil and spices instead of the traditional method of seasoning them with salt pork and bacon drippings. I have included a full nutritional analysis for those items so you can decide which method you use to season your food.
You will find appetizers like Cheese Straws and Asparagus Roll Ups and a few more. It covers the breads like Buttermilk Biscuits, Cornbread Dressing, and Hushpuppies.
The Main Dishes section gives you recipes for Baked Ham, Chicken Pot Pie, Fried Flounder, Roasted Chicken with instructions for 3 different methods of roasting it. And, of course, it wouldn’t be complete without a Southern Style Deep Fried Chicken recipe.
The Side Dishes have those traditional family reunion inspired casseroles such as Asparagus Casserole, Broccoli Casserole, and Cheesy Potato Casserole. It also covers Collard Greens, Creamed Style Corn, Macaroni and Cheese, and Creamy Mashed Potatoes.
If you are looking for great recipes for Dessert, you have got to try the Banana Pudding and the Southern Sweet Potato Souffle.
The recipes in this book will have the number of servings, preparation time and total time from start to finish. Your time may vary if you are just starting to learn to cook. There is also a nutritional analysis with each recipe calculated using the USDA database, Version SR-24.
So, grab your copy now just in time to impress your family and friends for the holidays.
Update: Katherine’s Southern Cooking is now available in paperback. Just search for ISBN-13: 978-1481150118.
