From Publishers Weekly
This surprising, eccentric volume is full of curious anecdotes, history and cornbread lore, from tales of the Native Americans teaching Pilgrims to make cornbread, to stories of slaves living on little but "ash cakes," corn patties baked in the ashes of a fire. Most intriguing (and delicious) are the recipes themselves, which span the globe to find the happy taste of cornmeal in dozens of novel incarnations. Vermont Maple-Sweetened Cornbread is a classic, a medium-sweet skilletful of steaming yellow bread that makes a wonderful companion to baked beans or a mellow soup. Savory Onion-Scallion Corn Cakes are a spicy variation on the theme, livened up with a fresh green chile. Many recipes are for cornbread accompaniments, like a Golden Gazpacho that turns garden vegetables and lots of corn into an all-American version of the Spanish soup, and Patsy's Cornbread Salad, which mixes chunks of tomato, bacon and onion with cornbread for a Southern take on the Italian bread salad called panzanella. The most exciting corn-themed dishes come from less expected places: the labor-intensive but phenomenally flavorful Sancocho is a South American stew, and African Vegetable Mafe is dense with peanut butter and sauteed vegetables, perfect for sopping up.

The book is divided into styles of cornbread: Southern, Northern, Southwestern, Global, Babycakes, Yeasted, Soulful Spoonbreads, Crisper, Go-Withs, Desserts, and several others. The wood-cut style illustrations are very nice, the writing is clear and entertaining.
I'm looking forward to finding my perfect cornbread recipe.
It's also nicely formatted for the Kindle and everything seems to work. Always a plus. Editing looks top-notch-an even bigger plus.
Everything you could ever want to know about cornbread and more. This book takes you through northern, southern, native, and progressive cornbread styles and then an entire other section packed with what to eat with your cornbread. Even dessert.
One thing I LOVE about CD's books are her menus. Dotted throughout are menu ideas inspired by holidays, happy days, or just good days to bake some cornbread. It's that little jolt of inspiration we sometimes need when dinner time rolls around.
Perfect for cornbread lovers, quasi-vegetarians, and anyone who loves cozy comfort cooking.
This book has been part of my library for some time, and I delight in flipping through for inspirations. It's indispensable for me - I so enjoy trying a new recipe and remaking favorites to enjoy on their own or with meals.
Dragonwagon writes her recipes clearly and concisely; each that I have tried - and I have tried many - have easily accessible ingredients and easily understood methods.
Regardless of your regionalism, I highly recommend The Cornbread Gospels.
