Editorial Reviews

Review

[Includes] tasty savory uses for bourbon.--Charleston Post and Courier

Purvis provides a belly warming small batch of whiskey facts about Kentucky's greatest export.--Tampa Tribune

A tribute to the spirit of the South.--Wilmington Star-News

An intoxicating journey through the history of bourbon. . . using [Purvis's] trademark wicked wit and Southern food knowledge to entice your food curiosity as well as your palate.--Creative Loafing Charlotte

[The] recipes . . . are clearly and concisely written and easy to follow.--Advocate

There's nothing wrong with drinking your bourbon with some mint and simple syrup or sipping it straight up, but bourbon adds flavor to cakes and pies, livens up salad dressings, enhances the tang of a meat marinade, and jazzes up a hot dog. So let's think about adding a few more splashes of bourbon to our meals.--Lexington Herald-Leader

Kentucky's signature spirit proves itself worthy of a place in the pantry.--Lexington Herald-Leader

Kathleen does bourbon justice with insights and attention to detail in the history and distilling process of this amber nectar. If you know a bourbon drinker, make sure they have a copy.--Edible Piedmont

Crisply illuminating.--Kitchen Arts and Letters

[A] splendid series.--Los Angeles Times

Out to dispel this awful misconception that bourbon is only designed for pre or post dinner discussions. . . [Purvis] takes bourbon from the bar into the kitchen.--Mobile Press-Register

SAVOR THE SOUTH--designed to give Dixie's most time-honored ingredients their due.--Garden & Gun

Spirited writing . . . of the South's favorite whiskey.--jeanandersoncooks.com

Review

Kathleen Purvis's Bourbon is a supremely engaging, lively exploration of the origins and practice of the South's most beloved spirit. It also may be the most exhaustive cookbook on the subject ever published; Purvis has packed this volume with so many great ideas for bringing bourbon's beguiling, smoke-and-caramel flavor to the center of the plate (Bourbon Benedict, Bourbon-Glazed Salmon, Bourbon- Coffee Brulee) that from now on we'll be keeping a copy on the bar and another in the kitchen!--Matt Lee and Ted Lee, authors of The Lee Bros. Charleston Kitchen

The book includes recipes for cocktails, appetizers, main dishes and sides, and desserts. Interesting sidebars include "Cooking with Alcohol" and "Which Whiskey is Which?" It is well written and researched. I highly recommend it. I am going to try "Bacon Bourbon" and "Apple Butter" this week.
