After virtually wearing out the pages of Marvin Woods' first book, I came across this one and immediately snatched it up. Once again, Mr. Woods brings fourth classically elegant dishes of the south with a more modern flair. These dishes are the sort that not only offer down home flavor to any meal, but will offer the romanticism of the old South. Any guest at your home will be thrilled to be treated to these regional specialties. You need not be a professional cook to be successful with these dishes, following the directions will yield wonderful results that will have you and your guests harkening back to the spanish moss mansions of the deep south. Buy this book, you wont be disappointed.

I'm a southerner by birth, and I'm always looking for ways to spice up the old standbys while keeping a smidgen of authenticity. That is what I was expecting from the "fresh twist" in the title of this book. If we're talking about the "fresh market" angle, than I really can't complain, but there certainly weren't any new ideas here. The recipies are solid and traditional, but no more exciting than any other standard southern cookbook out there. Paula Deen still has the market cornered for sensationaly flavored traditional southern food, in my opinion.

As one that watches his TV show whenever the opportunity allows me, I had to have a copy of his book. And as one born and raised in the south, I fnd that his recipes, while not exactly as I knew them, do remain faithful to many of the meals I grew up with. I don't always follow them as written (I sneak in a few of my Mothers methods) nonetheless, you can't go arong with any of his.

Every recipe is wonderful! I've tried at least a dozen and they were all as good as the descriptions. Nice photos, easy-to-follow directions make this cookbook a winner. Since Turner South network went belly-up, I have missed Marvin Woods Home Plate Cooking show. This cookbook contains most of the recipes except for one that I am desparately hunting for ... French Coconut Pie. Other than that, I rate this one very high.
