Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In his enthusiastic introduction, John Berendt, author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, writes: "Authentic Southern food is not about pretension." Sure enough, this book by the proprietor of The Lady & Sons restaurant in Savannah, Ga., doesn't put on any airs. A great many recipes unabashedly list prepared foods among the ingredients. As an appetizer, Garlic Cheese Spread includes an eight-ounce package of cream cheese and an eight-ounce jar of Cheez-Whiz. Shrimp or Lobster Bisque contains, in addition to seafood, a can each of condensed tomato soup and condensed mushroom soup. The restaurant's most popular dessert is Gooey Butter Cakes, which starts with a box of Duncan Hines yellow cake mix. Still, some of the recipes attain a high level of regional authenticity: Georgia Cracker Salad is made with crushed saltines, tomato, scallions, hard-boiled egg and mayonnaise; Southern Fried Chicken acquires its crispy coating with a batter of eggs and self-rising flour. Readers concerned about high fat content should skip this book. But those looking for some distinctively American comfort food?and in a mood for some decidedly anti-nouvelle regression?might want to take a peek.

From Library Journal

Savannah's popularity as a tourist destination has increased dramatically in the months that John Berendt's Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil has been on the New York Times best sellers list, and in his introduction to this cookbook, Berendt says Deen's restaurant is one he recommends to visitors as exemplifying "the very heart of Southern cooking." Deen (the Lady) says Southern cooking is "comfort food," and she and her two sons serve homey, completely unpretentious food at their popular downtown restaurant. Many of the recipes she includes here rely on convenience foods (canned soup, Cheese Whiz) and some have been perennial favorites in "community" cookbooks since the Fifties or Sixties. Area libraries will want copies; most others can skip.

Once again Paula Deen delights us with her yummy southern cuisine.
Her recipes are easy to follow, and she has beautiful pictures that show off her country cooking.

If you are an avid cook you will love this cookbook. If you aren't, enjoy the pictures and have a friend or
family member cook for you. And if you can, visit her famous restaurant in Savannah...The Lady & Sons.

Read, cook, and enjoy!:-)

Always have loved Paula's home cooking recipes!!!! Someone borrowed my bookbook and never returned it so I reordered a new one. Love all of her recipes. Hate the fact Food Network dropped her shows. I have stopped watching Food Network channel. I will always be a supporter of Paula Deen. My family loves her recipes.

How hard is it to proofread something like that!!! Here is but a partial listing. I quit proofreading and will get a refund I guess.

Great southern recipes in this book. Nothing in this book is even remotely "healthy" though, this is old fashioned southern comfort food

I bought this because me and my family has been to Paula's restaurant in Savannah. I wanted to cook something that I had tried on the menu. I am not sorry because everything I have tried from this book has been delicious just ask my family.

I am actually a cook that if something looks pleasing to the eye, I will try and cook it. I bought a bunch of cookbooks and didn't read the summary description of those books so when I received this book, I was so disappointed to find out that there were no pictures of the recipes. I will not return it because the shipping cost is the same as the cookbook price so I will probably just donate this book back to the library.

Perfect condition. Arrived quickly. Busy deciding which recipes to try first. I recommend this seller. The book looks like it is brand new but of course I bought it used.
