Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Flagg, author of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Caf e (Random, 1987) and of the screenplay for the popular movie inspired by the book, admits that she is no cook--but she loves to eat. And so she has collected favorite recipes from the real cafe that was her model, The Irondale Cafe in Irondale, Alabama, run by her great-aunt for more than 50 years and still going strong. All the traditional dishes are here, from grits to barbecue to black bottom pie, along with the author's irreverent, irresistible commentary on Southern cooking and culture. Quotes from Fried Green Tomatoes and period photographs further add to Flagg's atmospheric text. Recommended for most collections.

    The BEST cookbook

    This is THE best cookbook you will ever use. I have made many recipes from this book, and each one has been exceptional. My husband and I agree; there is not a bad recipe in the book.

    The best in southern cooking

    This is the best southern cookbook I have ever found. Just like my mama made!!!! A must have for your collection especially if, like me, you have moved out of the south and can't find these wonderful dishes anywhere else!

    Love this cookbook

    The recipes are easy to follow and short which I like. Also the little comments by the recipes are fun to read and most are very funny. I have a friend that I know will love this cookbook too so I have bought another one to give her at Christmas.
