A lot of these recipes I grew up knowing, but Nicole has her own twist that made me want to try her recipe -- Pineapple-Black Walnut Upside Down Cake, Fried Pie, Sauteed Soft Shell Crab. But it was the Savory Grits Waffle, that made me think, "this women got me wanting to buy a waffle iron". Really, I have never owned or wanted a waffle iron. This is a great cook book filled with love and passion for good eating. A great gift item.
When it comes to southern cooking I needed help in the form of a cookbook.
Things like cooking grits and biscuits without the proper guidance can prove disastrous (and it has in the past) most of the time.
I was actually able to make these clearly written recipes successfully.
Great desserts like the pineapple-black walnut upside down cake and red velvet cheese cake are outstanding.
Mains like the whole roasted duck with cherries and the ginger and pear pork chops are show-stoppers.
The stories are delivered with thoughtful and sincere expressive prose.
Nicole A. Taylor writes as a close friend that is right there in the kitchen with you.
It would seem she actually wants you to succeed in making southern food.
I really felt like Nicole wants me to be in the kitchen, cooking from scratch. Her "worldly" influences add a refreshing update to traditional Southern cooking that would make anyone want to get into the kitchen and throw down!
