Editorial Reviews

Review

“This collection captures both the spirit and the history of Southern food culture. The breadth of this collection is inspiring. To be able to read Frederick Douglass next to Edward Behr and Michael Pollan is exciting to me. As someone who is passionate about American culinary history and culture, I was also pleased to find that these writings really challenged some of my most basic assumptions about why Southern cuisine exists as it does today.”—David Chang, chef/owner of Momofuku


“A veritable feast of good writing and original thinking . . . Like the well-made meal, it’s carefully sequenced to document tradition as well as innovation, history as well as the surprisingly new.”—Tom Rankin, director of the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University


"Southern food has become high profile, but there is not a better book than Cornbread Nation 6 to understand its appeal. From family tables to city restaurants, from Cajuns to Texans to Geechee girls, from slave food to contemporary ethnic offerings, this book offers engaging and informed stories of the diversity of southern foodways. A book that gives food voices from Frederick Douglass to Wendell Berry (by way of Michael Pollan) should be consumed with gusto. Pour a beverage, whether bourbon or Cheerwine, and sit down with this book on the porch. The light will shine."—Charles Reagan Wilson, Cook Chair of History and Southern Studies, University of Mississippi


“Not all for the serious, scholarly or scientific. . ., Cornbread Nation 6  also brings humor and humanity to what could ultimately be the best on-going collection of food writing in America today.”—Edible Memphis



"Reading is a pleasure that most of us wish we could do more often, if only time and energy would allow it. Reading about food is an even more exquisite treat for some; if the focus happens to be Southern food, well, that's simply icing on the cake. Luckily, for those who appreciate all that the world of Southern food entails, there's Cornbread Nation. . . . [Brett Anderson] has created a compilation that will literally make the reader salivate."—Roni K. Devlin, Shelf Awareness


"I've hardly put the volume down."—Andre Gallant, Athens Banner-Herald


"Southern cuisine is a moving target unwilling to lie still for even the discriminating palates of Southern food writers. But thankfully, those folks are still out there, cheering, challenging and chewing on everything that Southern food has come to represent. Their stories come together in Cornbread Nation 6. . . . It gives a revealing and insightful look at [Southern cuisine's] evolution."—Nedra Rhone, Atlanta Journal-Constitution

An annual collection of food writing that focuses on Southern food, this book is a wonderful collection of short essays, memoirs and (thankfully, only a little ) poetry. The authors range from those of national renown like Michael Polllen to local writers. I generally like anthology style formats since it offers you a "taste" of a author that may be worth following in the future. I also enjoy the "Best Food Writing" series edited by Holly Hughes which is often displayed at larger book chains but this book far surpasses it.
