Editorial Reviews


"To be in the company of a mind this curious is a pleasure."
The New York Times Book Review (New York Times Book Review )

"With a sensibility rooted in both research and rock'n'roll, [John T. Edge] has made throwbacks to standbys like catfish and collards and fried pimento cheese hip."
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (Atlanta Journal Constitution )

"Sit back and travel with accomplished food writer Edge as he presents some of the best and most unique restaurants the South has to offer. . . .Without a doubt, Edge demonstrates just how much food is woven into the fabric of the South. This book will score high."
Library Journal (Library Journal )

"Edge is a man on a mission, a mission to preserve and celebrate two of America's greatest cultural gems: the food and the food lore of the South. . . . Southern Belly is the apotheosis of Edge's great passions for Southern food and Southern people. The book is filled with pictures, drawings, maps, stories, recipes and--most important--a carefully culled selection of Southern restaurants that serve what Edge calls 'honest food.' He is a spirited guide . . . What he does best: uncover another unsung gastronomical treasure with a surprising, uniquely Southern story."--Salon.com (Salon.com )

"The book blends history, culture and good eating, with visits to more than 200 restaurants."--Atlanta Journal Constitution (Atlanta Journal Constitution )


"I want to keep Southern Belly around for reference and re-reading. That's why I keep fighting off the urge to eat it."—Roy Blount Jr.
