Nathalie Dupree's Shrimp & Grits Cookbook presents a dish born in South Carolina and elevated to new heights. Authors Nathalie Dupree and Marion Sullivan reviewed the most famous and the most cherished recipes for shrimp and grits to cull out the best for a cookbook which even covers what kind of pan to use. Another plus: recipes come from top lowcountry chefs, are paired with color photos, and include plenty of variety, from Goat Cheese, Basil and Shrimp Timbales to Shrimp and Grits with Country Ham and Red-Eye Gravy and Quick Tomato-Bacon Shrimp and Grits.

I had checked this book out sooo many times from our Public Library I was finally compelled to get online and find a copy for keeps!!! I absolutely love this book... I guess you can tell I love Shrimp and Grits too!
This book is a jewel from cover to cover. There's some history that was great to learn but the recipes are awesome. If you're like me, this is one for your culinary library. Read, Eat, and Enjoy!

This is a terrific guide to real southern good food, centering around grits and, of course, shrimp. The truth is that grits are very closely related to polenta, and they can be great. This book is a terrific guide to good grits & good shrimp as they are eaten in the South. I am a California inhabitent myself, but this food is good. The receipes also are not too complicated and good for family or guests.

Another fabulous cookbook by my favorite southern cooking author. I've already tried a recipe and it was a huge hit with my family. PS -- They don't particulary like grits.

You don't have to be from the South to LOVE Nathalie Dupree's Shrimp and Grits.
And who would have thought that an entire cook book on these lowly, but Heavenly ingredients could be so varied, so intriguing and so straight forward.
Every kitchen should have this cook book on the shelf.

This book may just be the greatest book ever written. Ms. Dupree is one of the founders of the Southern Foodways Alliance and a true champion of traditional Southern cuisine. The recipes in this book run the gamut from the simple to the complex (but never so complex that amateur cooks can't make them), and reflect all the various cultures that made their contributions to Low Country cuisine. You wouldn't believe the number of different ways in which shrimp and grits can be prepared and the incredible range of flavors these two simple ingredients can provide, and Ms. Dupree expresses them all wonderfully. Almost all the recipes require ingredients that are easy to find and all the ones I have tried have been, without exception, absolutely delicious (and I've tried over twenty so far). If you love Low Country cuisine, buy this book. If you've never had the pleasure then you REALLY should buy this book. I've owned a copy for a few weeks now and it has never left my kitchen counter. I've managed to eat shrimp and grits at least three times a week since buying the book and have yet to duplicate either a recipe or a flavor profile. Simply a wonderful piece of work. If you buy this book and don't love it, don't bother ever cooking again.

I am a HUGE fan of shrimp & grits, and every time i vacation in Charleston, i simply must find some. So i was thoroughly intrigued by a cookbook that features a whole set of recipes for this particular "delicacy". This is a fantastic collection of recipes and it is well written and illustrated. I didn't know there were so many different variations of this dish! This is an excellent book.
