Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The Terrys (mother and daughter) take the cake and then some with their first book. In recipes and anecdotes, they offer home cooks the irresistible combination of hospitality and delicious dining available at the Savannah, Ga., restaurant depicted in John Berendt's Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. The dishes seduce with enticing blends of traditional and unexpected tastes-apple in the Cream of Cauliflower Soup, an unexpected spice in Chilled Cinnamon Spiced Shrimp. Many dishes call for Southern ingredients (black-eyed peas, grits, country ham), but the Terrys reach beyond regional roots. Chilled Tomato, Red Pepper and Cucumber Soup balances the sweetness of roasted peppers with the pep of poblano, garlic and basil. Fish and shellfish chapters are particularly strong with items such as Tuna Roasted with Mustard and Pepper, which is first napped with a Lime Mustard Glaze. Also welcome are such tips as the suggestion that roast chicken, shredded while hot, is a successful substitute in crab recipes. Meat and poultry get fewer starring roles, but sauces, both savory and sweet, win applause, while desserts demand encores. They are as rich as Chocolate Cappuccino Mousse Cake or as simple as Ginger Poached Peaches and include such versatile staples as a Sweet Nutmeg Whole Wheat Crust. Illustrations.

From Library Journal

Elizabeth Terry is a self-trained chef who came to the restaurant business relatively late in life, but she's been acclaimed as one of the top chefs in the country. With college-age daughter Alexis, she has collected the favorite recipes served at their elegant, family-run restaurant in Savannah, Georgia. Terry is known for her imaginative interpretations of classic Southern dishes, and she notes that heirloom cookbooks were part of her culinary education; an emphasis on fresh local ingredients has also been an important part of the appeal of Elizabeth on 37th since it opened in 1980. In addition to recipes such as Country Shrimp with Tomato and Okra and Rich Dense Chocolate Pecan Torte, there are lots of chef's tips from Terry and very personal family anecdotes from her, her husband/restaurant partner, and their "two restaurant kids." An engaging book filled with delicious recipes; recommended for most collections.

I bought this book after a visit to Savannah and Elizabeth Terry's wonderful restaurant, more as a memento of my trip than a book to actually use in the kitchen. It has become one of my most frequently used cookbooks. I have tried about a dozen recipes so far. They are simple and foolproof, but taste as if you spent much longer preparing them. Her marinades are especially creative, and her fish dishes have all been wonderful. I am planning to give several copies as Christmas gifts this year.

Everything in the book is great, unique, flavorful and simple! A family favorite -- everyone wants the recipie when I have dinner parties and they think I slaved for hours -- really most take a bit of pre planning and chopping -- some can be done ahead of time and then you can truly relax! Chicken, fish, pork, sauces, and other fun items to make you look like a pro!

Elizabeth and her daughter Alexis have put together one of the best cookbooks out. It is a charming book with lots of easy-to-follow recipes and many, many little stories. After reading this book, you'll feel like one of the family (The whole family are super chefs)--and you'll be able to cook almost as well, too. A really great cookbook with intriguing, unique recipes..

We dined at the restaurant and we had the 'tasting menu' - it was fabulous. But, I was dreaming of the stuffed vidalia onions. The recipe is in this book - stuffed with sausage! We made it and it was rather easy and tasted like I remembered. We've also tried a few other recipes and have been very pleased.

Finally, a cookbook from one of America's best restaurants that even I can follow. No training needed, as a test Elizabeth Terry made sure that her teenage daughter could cook every recipe. In thirty days my family tried over thirty recipes with great success. This book makes a great gift. You still will want to visit her Savannah restaurant to meet this very nice lady in person.
