The recipes are not overly complicated, the ingredients easy to find and everything I have made is delicious.
Barbara W. Tye
As a member of the Junior League and a collector of Junior League cookbooks, I have to say that this book is one of the best I have ever seen or used.

So it is nice to be reading the book looking for a recipe and have interesting stories to read as you look!!!

This book is a winner! It is not only full of beautiful pictures, but also contains fabulous menu suggestions for any occasion. I have received rave reviews from all of my guests. You must try the chicken pecan quiche and the spinach and strawberry salad. It has become the first book that I turn to every time!

Jr. League cookbooks have come a long way since the first little spiral-bound paper products of some 40 or 50 years ago. I don't know if the Atlanta Jr. League was the first to come up with the cookbook moneymaker project, but I do know their cookbooks have been much respected over the years -- venerated, even.
In this one, though, they've outdone themselves. Even if the recipes were awful (and they're not), there's still enough entertainment in this book to make it worthy of the price. And that's not counting the gorgeous illustrations that place it firmly in coffeetable display status.
It's the stories by famous Georgia writers that kick this volume into the stratosphere of pleasure.
Ferrol Sams's double-take as he watches Katie Couric brave a glass of horse's milk on the Today Show, for example, is bound to split a stitch or two.
Then there's the late Lewis Grizzard on his prowess at the grill. "I come from a long line of outdoor grillers," he says, "My Uncle Jerome still holds the American record for consecutive days grilling out, 178."
Reconstructed Yankee Bill Diehl holds forth on how he came to love the South. He quotes his mentor, Ralph Gill of the Atlanta Constitution, "We must work to make a better North, South, West or New England, because in so doing we make a better America."
The inimitable Anne Rivers Siddons holds forth on the difficulties of finding a bowl of real Southern grits while on book tour in the great Fly-Over Land.
Stuart Woods, Eugenia Price, and Valerie Richards Jackson are just a few of the star-studded literary lights who shine in these pages. What a great idea to showcase Georgia's finest literary talents along with its best culinary talents!
I'll vouch for the recipes, too.

This book is one of my favorites. I've cooked about 75% of the recipes and the vast majority have turned out wonderful. There are a few that sounded good, but didn't turn out well, but those are few and far between. If you're from The South, you'll instantly bond with it. And if you're from anywhere else, it will give you a comprehensive and current view of southern cuisine. Enjoy and eat well! P.S. The bourbon pound cake - it will make you cry. Yum.

This is a great book with recipes and stories. The recipes range anywhere from very very easy to somewhat difficult. Especially great are the Vidalia onion recipes (you can use any sweet onion instead). It also makes a great gift for a wedding shower, mother's day or housewarming. P.S. I don't agree with the review on Coca-Cola cake -- I had it last night and it was fantastic. Make sure to look for Atlanta Cooknotes, another great cookbook from the Junior League of Atlanta

Having used many recipes from the cookbook I was extremely upset by your recipe for the "Coca-Cola Cake". I know many people who tested the recipes so I did not feel the need to check the recipe when I questioned the list of ingridients and their amounts---that was my fault, however to have such a special recipe wrong and to have it right in the previous book really baffles me---where were your testers???? I was making this cake for a birthday luncheon of 20 women many who were not from here or even the south and I was embarrassed.It will be a long time before I use your book again and I will not recommend it as I feel I can not trust the recipes. I do hope corrections will be made.
Sincerely, Janet Cembor

Verified Purchase
The first recipe I tried from this book was the "controversial" Coca Cola Cake-& it was indeed a flop! In researching other versions of this recipe I found that for the icing, this recipe calls for 3/4 cup of cola whereas most others call for approx. 3 tablespoons! No wonder mine looked lake a "floating isle"! Now I'm not sure I trust the other recipes!

True Grits is a wonderful cookbook. Not only does it have great (and easy) recipes from the south but it is also a beautiful book. It is the perfect gift for cooks who enjoy southern cuisine and appreciate coffee table quality cookbooks.
