I won a copy of this cookbook. It was a great surprise, but not what I expected. Full of recipes, with a history of the restaurant that serves it. It was like taking a tour of the South. Love it and can not wait to get in the kitchen, or even better taking a road trip to one of these hot spots to taste their creation. I live about 2 hours away from one spot and am thinking about a visit to it.

This is a Fun Cook Book
The Southern Foodie -100 Place Eat to Eat in the South before You Die (and the recipes that made them famous) .This book makes you want to grab your best friend and this book and start a food crawl across the south. The author Chris Chamberlain has traveled and written about the places and the food that he loved in the south. You travel through 13 states with the author as you read this cook book and you get the best recipes from the restaurants. The book has great pictures with the recipes to and that is a must for me in a cook book. I love cook books with pictures. I think I might have to make the Redeye Shrimp and Grits from the Westport General Store in Westport KY. or maybe the Fruity Beer Can Chicken from JB Smokehouse on Johns Island SC. Maybe I need to travel a few hours to Fort Smith Arkansas and try the Yellow Crooked Neck Squash at the Calico Country Restaurant or to Penguin Ed’s Bar- B-Q in Fayetteville I mean who doesn’t want to try white chocolate brownies anyway. I just loved this book but I must say I am extremely partial to cook books with pictures that have recipes that have ingredients that you can get at the normal grocery store and that are easy or moderate to make. I just had fun dreaming of places to go. I give this book my four star rating. I must also let you know that I received a complementary copy of this b book from Book Sneeze for my honest opinion and review. The review I have written are just that my honest opinion.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

The Southern Foodie is an interesting addition to any cookbook collection. It would also be a fun book to have on hand while planning a vacation traveling across the states listed in the book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book lists some noteworthy places to eat across 13 of the southern states. The book is broken down by state. Within each state is listed an average of a half dozen places to eat that are worth pulling off the freeway for. Listed under each restaurant is the address, phone umber, email address, a brief description of what makes the place worth stopping at, a description of the cuisine and atmosphere, its specialties, and an insider tip (whether or not to make a reservation, etc). Then, each restaurant has shared one or two recipes from their menu for you to try!
As far as the recipes go, I found that many of them had ingredients that I'd either never heard of or don't ordinarily stock in my kitchen. This was not a huge surprise to me as I stock a fairly simple, down-home kitchen with mostly just the basics and I know that. But I'm not sure that I will get much practical cooking use out of this book without adapting the recipes to use ingredients that are either available in my town or that I already have on hand. That said, there were some yummy looking dishes (from appetizers, main courses, and side dishes, to salads and desserts)! I will be sure to try at least a few of these tasty treats in my own home!
I received this book free from Thomas Nelson's Booksneeze blogger book review program and am under no obligation to provide a positive review.
