Review

Praise for Sara Foster’s Southern Kitchen
 
“Sara Foster’s book on Southern cooking is absolutely stunning. She takes old-fashioned recipes like buttermilk biscuits and fried chicken and updates them for modern cooks. I can’t wait to work my way through this gorgeous book!”—Ina Garten
 
“From squash-threaded hush puppies to brûléed rice pudding, Sarah Foster is a keen synthesizer of Southern genres and geographies. My copy of her latest is already dog-eared and (red-eye) gravy splattered.”—John T. Edge, series editor of Cornbread Nation: The Best of Southern Food Writing
 

“Sara Foster is the quintessential Southern cook. On every page of Sara Foster’s Southern Kitchen there is ample evidence of the accuracy of its subtitle: ‘Soulful, Traditional, Seasonal.’ ” —Julia Reed, author of Ham Biscuits, Hostess Gowns, and Other Southern Specialties

“Sara Foster skillfully breaks through the boundaries of classic Southern cooking. The recipes and photographs are full of Southern soul and charm. I want to stick a fork right into the pages and devour them.”—Donald Link, chef and author of Real Cajun
 
“Some of the recipes in this book are traditional, others have been adapted to modern times. All will tempt people who love to cook.”—Bill Smith, chef and author of Seasoned in the South

You'll get ideas for every season and every occasion.

Now I need a book for myself and will certainly order one and probably others to keep on hand for gifts needed in the future.
Marilyn Leonard
The best thing about this book is that everything we've made from the book so far has been well tested and delicious.

An excerpt from my review on KateCookstheBooks.com:

Her approach is straightforward, her recipes simple, and her instructions clear. Her affection and respect for her subject is obvious and unwavering. Of the recipes I tried, the downright inedibles were few (one to be precise: the incendiary Memphis-Style Barbecued Spare Ribs). Some, unmemorable: Friday Night Steak Sandwiches, Mixed Bean Salad with Herb Vinaigrette, Creamy Potato Salad, Spicy Pepper Jelly-Marinated Grilled Pork Tenderloin, and the Farm-Stand Peach Ice Cream (grainy and a disappointing waste of in-season peaches).

To-be-made again (and some already have): Deviled Ham Salad, Spring Pea Toasts with Lemon Olive Oil and Fresh Pea Shoots, Pimento Cheese, Salt and Pepper Skillet Cornbread, Summer Corn Cakes with Chopped Tomato and Avocado Salsa, Kate's Sweet Potato Refrigerator Rolls, Crispy Chicken Cutlets with a Heap of Spring Salad, Fried Green Tomato BLT, Slow-Roasted Pulled Pork Butt, Anytime Hoppin' John, Summer Succotash, Fried Green Tomatoes with Buttermilk Green Goddess Dressing, Summer Squash Casserole, and Sour Cherry Preserves.

Sara's cookbook is probably the first good one I've bought in many years. I bought a second one for a friend, too. I read it, like a novel, after checking it out at the library. Such down to earth good sense, easy to follow instructions.I've made several meals to rave reviews. Thank you, Sara.So many tips on great little local eateries I hope to visit. She's done a great job promoting those businesses. The trip to FL this year is going to take longer with several side trips just to EAT.

I love cooking from Sara Foster's books. I purchased all her books and enjoy cooking from it for many years now. Her food is fresh and healthy. I just puchased her new book and I already cooked up a few dishes already. Her recipes is easy and very tasty. This is healthy southern food ( unlike Puala Deen). I love Paula Deen and puchased 2 of her books, but I only cooked from it once in a blue moon because of all the butter and other fats in her recipes. Love all your books Sara.

AS with all of Sarah Fosters books this one rates right up there with the best. I have had the pleasure of eating and shopping in Foster's Market in Durham and enjoyed the food and especially the coconut macaroons.
I made the barbecue out of this book for a labor day picnic and brought the dish home empty.

There hasn't been a recipe that I have tried from this book that wasn't wonderful. Particularly the Favorite Buttermilk Biscuits, Watercress Angel Biscuits, Salt and Pepper Skillet Cornbread, Pork Tenderloin and Buttermilk Biscuits with Roasted Tomato-Thyme Gravy, Brown Bag Chicken, Chicken and Dumplings, Crispy Pork Chops, Pat's Skillet-Seared Steak With Herb Butter, Pimiento Cheese Burgers, Pickled Jalapeno Meatloaf, Foster Family's Pot Roast With Herb-Roasted Vegetables, Carolina Gold Rice, Anytime Hoppin' John, Buttermilk Mashed Creamers, Baked Rosemary Sweet Potato Halves, Crispy Fried Vidalia Onion Rings, Braised Cabbage and Molasses-Bourbon Pecan Pie. I've stepped outside of my comfort zone in doing some deep frying and meat cooking and the instructions have been dead-on. I loved reading the introductions to the recipes and the write-ups of different restaurants around the South. The pictures are absolutely beautiful too. I can't recommend this book enough for anyone who likes to cook.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Music Lover from Wisconsin on September 28, 2011
Format: Hardcover
In the two days I've had a copy of SARA FOSTER'S SOUTHERN SOUTHERN KITCHEN, I have made:

-Garden Tomato Soup with Creamy Goat Cheese
-Foster Family's Candied Sweet Potatoes
-Red Beans and Rice with Andouille Sausage

All three recipes were straightforward and delicious. No surprise to us there - we cook from Ms. Foster's first two cookbooks at least several times a week. Sure, some of the recipes feature ingredients (oysters, crab, fresh okra) not readily available in rural Wisconsin where I live. We do have catfish, crawdads, and salmon, vine-grown tomatoes, and most every ingredient mentioned in the book, even grits. This Southern cookbook works pretty well up Nort', hey.

Sara is thorough, engaging and this book is beautiful. Larger in scope than her past books, "Southern Kitchen" really has tremendous heart in every page. We love the food find must stops that she has included throughout it's given us the yearning to travel to each of them and spend some time.
The best thing about this book is that everything we've made from the book so far has been well tested and delicious.
