Hey, anyone who knows the Surry County (NC) term for a deep dish pie has to be special. I thought I might have imagined that I'd heard my mother refer to her blackberry pie as a "sonker" until I saw an article about the book in the Raleigh paper. Ms. Anderson actually does answer e mails and give advice on cooking; unfortunately she told me there probably won't be a sequel book that includes several things she had to leave out of this book, like Blenhiem Ginger Ale. Well worth the reasonable price, I've given copies to several people including my brother and best friend.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Love this cookbook!
This book is soooo much more than a collection of recipes. It's about southern food and southern food heritage. The stories of some of the items (moon pies for example) brought back such great memories and I learned so much about where we get our regional food identity. The recipes are also wonderful! I would recommend this to everyone who appreciates sitting down at the southern supper table no matter where that table is located.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I had not heard of this book and was scanning around B&N for something new.I got it. This is not like any other cookbook you'll come across. Not only is it filled with practical and delicious recipes, but the author gives us a great deal of background on just about any and everything dealing with food and famous food personalities. So many cookbooks just repeat the same thing over and over with minor modification. This is the first cookbook I've come across that's really original. I was reminded, and only slightly, of the new 'Barring Some Unforeseen Accident' book that incorporates a cookbook into it, though I don't believe there's anything in that book you'll want to actually make as it is a spoof on Junior League cookbooks. A LOVE AFFAIR WITH SOUTHERN COOKING is a must-have for any kitchen, southern or not.
