"The Southern Foodie" by Chris Chamberlain, book review. Subtitle: 100 Places to eat in the south before you die (and the recipes that made them famous).

Southern Food...Is your mind full of golden fried chicken, mashed potatoes, hush puppies, collard greens, mac and cheese, chocolate cake, and sweet tea? If not, you have never been to the south, because these are the staples of the Southern kitchen or church potluck. But restaurants, well, they have done all these and more.

Author Chris Chamberlain, a native of Nashville, has compiled an impressive book listing 100 restaurants in the southern states from TX to FL with their stories and a signature recipe from each. Living in Tennessee, I read that chapter first and was pleased to see that I had been to two of the restaurants on the list.

This book is a combination tour guide and cook book. The author has included a detailed description of each restaurant including its history and cuisine. Then he includes a recipe from the menu, past or present. Don't make the mistake of reading this while hungry, because the descriptions and photos are mouth-watering!

So, if you are planning to travel, this book can offer restaurants to try along the way. Or if you are a Yankee, you can try your hand at making some of the wonderful recipes, provided you can find the needed ingredients where you live. Feel free to improvise if you can't.

This book would make a great gift for a foodie or a travel buff. Wonderful illustrations and heart-warming tales of the restaurants make almost a coffee table book. This just might be the book for someone on your Christmas list.

The Southern Foodie
100 Places to Eat in the South Before You Die (and the Recipes That Made Them Famous)

By Chris Chamberlain

I was a little disappointed after receiving, Southern Foodie by Chris Chamberlain to review. I had hoped for a listing of real Southern cuisine restaurants that served meals at reasonable prices. Although there are those type of listings, there are more that are just a little highfalutin and expensive for my taste. Some of the restaurants only served a dish or two of "authentic" Southern cuisine.

Other than that, the book provides great coverage of restaurants in 13 states. It provides detailed information and a few recipes of the various restaurants. The book would be a great trip planning tool. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone wanting a good sit-down restaurants throughout Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, or West Virginia.

A couple of years ago, I had to go on a cookbook hiatus. We had too many, they were taking over. But The Southern Foodie, I rationalized was not just a cook book, but a travel log as well.

The idea behind The Southern Foodie is captured in the subtitle: 100 places to eat in the South before you die (and the recipe that made them famous). The book is divided by state and then each restaurant has a bio that explains not only what they serve, but a little of their history and what makes them great. There are recipes and pictures of the various ones through out.

We picked two for the purpose of review. And I want you to know that I also checked with my Southern friends and family to make sure that these restaurants were the real deal. Considering that we chose two from extremely small towns and both were known, I'm taking that to mean that the rest are going to be winners as well.

We made The Crown's Pavlova from The Crown in Town Restaurant in Indianola, MS. Even though it looked nothing like the picture, the entire family enjoyed every single morsel. It was a great dessert that came together easily with no specialty items. Which are key notions for most Southern cooking.

We also made Hattie Mae's Tomato Pie from Grits and Groceries in Belton, SC with homegrown tomatoes! It was delicious! I would eat it again, but I'm out of mayo. I'm also told that this restaurant isn't in Belton, but that's the closest land mark.

Overall, it's a great addition to our recipe library. If you want to take a trip through the South in your kitchen, this would be a great itinerary.

Format: Paperback
The Southern Foodie cookbook by Chris Chamberlain is a celebration of the glorious foods of the South and offers recipes of both traditional and modern Southern cooking. Through colorful photographs, lively stories and profiles you meet some of the finest chefs throughout the country and visit restaurants both rural and urban, popular and hidden.

This book takes you on a delightful culinary road trip. The chapters are arranged by state with stops along the way for classic Southern favorites like to-die-for macaroni and cheese and new instant classics like she-crab soup.

This book is much more than a fabulous collection of recipes; The Southern Foodie gives us a peak into the vibrancy of the culinary scene in the South and offers up insightful information on the defining ingredients and techniques of Southern cooking."
