From Publishers Weekly
Southerner Dupree ( Nathalie Dupree Cooks for Family and Friends ), a restaurateuse, columnist and television host, reflects, "My South is the South where I ate fried fish for my wedding supper on the island of Ocracoke . . . the South is my soul." Here she feeds the body, too, with such favorites as "Fish Muddle" (a stew), fried catfish, microwave peanut brittle and other no-nonsense indulgences from south of the Mason-Dixon line. Pure pleasure has rarely been so immediately apparent in a culinary album: pictured plenty beams from almost every page, and it's unsurprising to find a "Spring Garden Cake" adorned with candied violets at rest in one photo under lavishly draped festoons of wisteria. Dupree's vision combines comfort with luxury as though there were no other choice; her taste is never pretentious, and her scruples about buttermilk, shortening and bacon are few and far between. But that's the South, and she doesn't reform it, leaving that chore to whatever Puritans may remain and inviting the rest of us to enjoy a full and flavorful repast.

Nathalie Dupree writes about food like no one else―with warmth, passion, and an unmistakable style of her own―but nowhere is her voice clearer, or more irresistibly charming, than in this timeless classic.(Damon Lee Fowler author of Classical Southern Cooking)
Rich with classic and modern recipes. The pictures of the dishes are so beautiful, you might be tempted to take a bite out of the page.(Library Journal) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Natalie Dupree represents the gracious southern lady . She knows how to make her guests comfortable
and serve great food . I miss seeing her on public TV , and I will try to use the book to live up to her standards .
She never wanted any one to feel bad for the mistakes that can happen in cooking . She deserves to enjoy her retirement
and I wish her the best . Charleston is the place that suits her personality , the perfect southern town .Enjoy the book .
Thanks Natalie for being an inspiration . :-} :-} :-}
The recipes are straight forward with a delicious final product. There isn't any need for exotic items, or special instruments. This book concentrates on GOOD FOOD without the flashy "modern-cooking" illusion smoke screens.
The book was a great bargain at cost and quality as well.
