Overview

In this, his eighth book, Robert St. John has compiled an all–encompassing memoir detailing what it was like growing up in the Deep South, and what life is like for a restaurateur, chef, author, columnist, husband, and father in the 21st century South.

Dispatches From My South includes chapters on childhood, fatherhood, family life, and the quirkiness and chaos of the holiday season. As he is wont to do, St. John strays into the dark world of strange foodstuffs and obscure eating practices. Follow along as he travels the country eating his way through the finest restaurants and the lowliest of joints. In addition to the greatest hits from his popular weekly food/humor column, this volume includes never before released writings, poems, and essays, as well as moving pieces written in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

St. John also includes his Top 40 recipes of all time in addition to 20 new, soon–to–be favorite recipes.

For anyone who grew up in the South, and anyone who wishes they had grown up in the South, even people who didn’t grow up in the South and didn’t want to grow up in the South, even for people who grew up in the Czech Republic, even people who� well, you get the point. Everyone needs to buy this book. So what are you waiting for?
