“Who better than the folks at Garden and Gun to gather this new generation of Southern food culture in one lovely volume? The Southerner’s Cookbook offers traditional recipes, essays, and a full glossary of terms that might fly right by those of us who grew up elsewhere.” (Edible Upcountry)
“[Garden & Gun’s] first dedicated cookbook is a culinary cross-section of the modern south, drawing recipes everywhere from tiny fried-chicken joints to the meticulous tweezer food of the region’s highest-end restaurants.” (Eater)
“There are so, so many Southern cookbooks out there, but if you only have room for one, The Southerner’s Cookbook is a good call.” (Epicurious)
“Even if you didn’t grow up on the food, The Southerner’s Cookbook will make you long for a plate of fresh-from-the-fryer chicken, buttermilk biscuits, and vinegar-laced collards. [A]nd if you’re lucky enough to be from the South, these recipes might just make you homesick.” (Tasting Table)
“Every year, every cookbook season for the past decade, there’s been a steady stream of Southern cookbooks that parallels the national interest in the region. Now, the editors of the award-winning Garden & Gun magazine have published one of the smartest, most attractive Southern cookbooks yet.” (The New Orleans Times-Picayune )
From the Back Cover
From Garden & Gun—the magazine that features the best of Southern cooking, dining, cocktails, and customs—comes an heirloom-quality guide to the traditions and innovations that define today’s Southern food culture, with more than 100 recipes and 4-color photography throughout.
From well-loved classics like biscuits and fried chicken to uniquely regional dishes such as sonker (Piedmont, North Carolina’s take on cobbler) or Minorcan chowder (Florida’s version of clam chowder), each recipe in The Southerner’s Cookbook tells a story about Southern food and its origins. With contributions from some of the South’s finest chefs, a glossary of cooking terms, and essays from many of the magazine’s most beloved writers, The Southerner’s Cookbook is much more than simply a collection of recipes: it is a true reflection of the South’s culinary past, present, and future

If you're a southerner like myself, then you will feel right at home. If you're not, then this cookbook poses as a great opportunity to get yourself acquainted with the south and the delicious cuisine it has to offer.
While there are many southern-themed cookbooks out there, if you have room for only one, this is a good way to go.
Now in a different city, I've been hunting high and low for some good fried chicken only to constantly be disappointed. I made this book's recipe and WOW, I couldn't believe my first attempt would come out that good. Everyone at the table was salivating and I ran out of pieces too quickly. People were grabbing a 4th or 5th piece because it was too good to stop.
If you want to cook authentic southern food, this is the cookbook for you. The recipes are so classic that I know I'll be pulling out this book on Sundays for my kids for decades to come.
The photographs are excellent and the recipes are entirely authentic with a twist.
