Editorial Reviews

The New York Times Book Review
The flavors here are big…[Thompson's] punchy but not ham-handed. And he has a missionary's fervor for the sides and vegetables that he calls…"the apex of Southern cooking."
—William Grimes
From the Publisher
The flavors here are big. . . . [Thompson] has a missionary's fervor for the sides and vegetables that he calls, in his introduction, 'the apex of Southern cooking.'—The New York Times

Library Journal
Accomplished food writer Thompson (managing editor, Edible Piedmont; Grillin' with Gas: 150 Mouthwatering Recipes for Great Grilled Food), who also writes the "Weekend Gourmet" column for the Raleigh News & Observer, here begins with spicy Sweet Potato Guacamole, a familiar yet deliciously unconventional dish that hints at what's to come. Recipes like Cheese Straws, Ambrosia, Jicama Ginger Slaw, and Fred's Favorite Oyster Dressing balance old with new, sweet with savory, and plain with upscale. More importantly, they reflect a rich history and the influences of a talented food community that includes Sara Foster, James Villas, Frank Stitt, and others. VERDICT A bible of classic and contemporary Southern sides. Highly recommended.

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
At last—a cookbook devoted to the glorious side dishes of the American South. This distinctive book is as wise, warm, and witty as the incomparable Fred Thompson. Turning its pages is the next best thing to being in his company. And it's the book to turn to when company's coming. I'm making room on my shelf of favorite cookbooks for this new classic.—Nathalie Dupree, TV host and author of New Southern Cooking and eleven other books
