Farm Fresh Southern Cooking by Tammy Algood is in one word fantastic. I read the cook book as if it were a novel. The recipes are doable and I had most everything in my pantry to try my hands at some of them. I think that is a must when it comes to cook books that the recipes are general but still delicious. And most of the recipes called for a reasonable amount of ingredients that are not scary. She created a cook book that is both beautiful and doable. I think one other fabulous aspect is that she titled the recipes charmingly like orange hugged carrots, pocketbook zucchini, and pack a picnic pepper muffins. So, tell me you would not want to try these recipes out? This is a cook book I would gift to friends and family and I cannot wait to fill my belly with these delicious meals.

Travel the southern states with author Tammy Algood to find locally grown produce, herbs, farms, and farmers' markets. Then explore the 270 pages of recipes that Ms. Algood offers to not only tempt your taste buds, but also to expand your horizons with new fresh flavors, you may not have ever tried.
Besides the recipes, what I enjoyed the most about this cookbook is the author's trips to farms and farmers' markets all over the southern states of the U.S. She gives us an overview of what to expect when visiting each farm, what they offer, tours that may be available, location, website information, and contact information. I found myself looking up many farms on the Internet and enjoyed many of their offerings. It is a good way to discover new opportunities for family, fun, day trips, and the freshest goods you may ever find.
Ms. Algood offers a large variety of recipes, all with a southern flair, of course. The list of offerings includes: appetizers, soups, salads, breads, entrees, desserts, great breakfasts and more.
Some of my favorite recipes are the "Easy crust chicken pot pie", "Revival strawberry bread", "Orange hugged carrots", and "Savory Zucchini pie". The cookbook has many full color photographs; and the author also includes a chapter of canning instructions.
Although I did not think I would enjoy some of these southern recipes, I found this cookbook quite delightful, and look forward to trying some fruits and vegetables that I may not have discovered on my own.
I received this book from BookSneeze.com in exchange for my honest review.

We had the joy of experiencing Southern cooking first-hand when we lived in Waxhaw North Carolina many years ago. I became a huge fan of crusty cornbread, fried chicken and, even, Hoppin' John! Traditional Southern cooking is not known for being health food, however, and it is easy to err on the side of fat, sugar and lack of fresh ingredients.

Tammy Algood (a food personality on Nashvilles ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox affiliates) has created recipes which use farm-fresh ingredients yet remain faithful to tradition.

Farm Fresh Southern Cooking Straight from the Garden to the Dinner Table is a delicious way to enjoy traditional southern cooking with a nice,fresh twist.

Recipe Sections include Appetizers, Soups, Salads, Sides, Breads, Entrees, Desserts, Breakfast and Brunch as well as Canning Instructions. The cookbook is paperback and printed on high quality paper with gorgeous photographs. Recipes such as Fresh Peach Salsa, Mixed Pepper Turnips, Dried Pear Bacon Bread and Citrus Zest Waffles will inspire you to try something deliciously different.

The cookbook is also sprinkled with the names and addresses of Southern suppliers of catfish farms, pecan orchards and farmers markets. This cookbook is delightfully different. I highly recommend it!

Good recipe book for Southern food. Some great things like the Golden Brown Goat Cheese Medallions, Coconut Corn Fritters and the savory zucchini pie. I wish the entree/meat section was a bit more though. Also wish there were more photos posted with the recipes, as some do not have photos. I think photos are always great for people just trying out something new, a photo to go off of always helps. But pretty good book, altogether.

This great cookbook is chock full of delicious recipes and little tips with each recipe regarding serving options or how the recipe came about. But what I enjoyed the most were the stories mixed in amongst the recipes about the places where the author picked up fresh food items.

Highly recommended.

My Kindle copy of this cookbook was graciously provided by BookSneeze for my honest review.

One of a Southerner's favorite meals is a slice of juicy, ripe homegrown tomato on a fresh, hot butter biscuit! I could almost taste that biscuit and feel the butter and juice from the tomato on my chin as I read "Farm Fresh Southern Cooking: Straight from the Garden to Your Dinner Table" by Tammy Algood. What a wonderful book! Beautifully produced on thick paper with colorful photos and helpful insights, this book is just the right size to be holdable and readable. As I write this in Spring, our Farmer's Markets here in the States will soon bloom with gorgeous produce and other seasonal offerings. However, at any given time, somewhere in the world, garden goodness is ripe for the picking and fruit orchards offer a bounty of delights. "Farm Fresh Southern Cooking" encourages you to go fresh, go local when possible, and go for the gusto of food prepared and served the way it was meant to be enjoyed! These recipes are literally a "return to the roots" of good food from good earth. I am not a great fan of black-eyed peas, but when I saw the photo and recipe for "Pea-Picking Salsa", I wanted to dip a pita chip right into that page! "Roasted Bacon Pecans"--heh-heh--pecan, butter, bacon, sugar, and salt--heh-heh!!! "Garden Vegetable Soup"--no meat at all--just gorgeous veggies and veggie stock, kicked up with added white wine. If I list all the marvelous ingredients in the "Sweet Potato and Shrimp Chowder", you might just start to cry from longing. "Hot Bacon Dressing over Wilted Greens" is an absolute Southern Classic--really! "Twice As Nice Corn Casserole" is so darn good, you must have at least two servings. "Parsnip and Tart Apple Puree"--a most perfect accompaniment to a pork main dish. "Baked Parmesan Catfish" will set your whiskers to twitching with its crusty, salty goodness.Read more ›
