"I tell Savannah-bound friends that if they want a short course in the meaning of Southern cooking--the flavors, the ambience, indeed the very heart of Southern cooking--they should drop in at The Lady & Sons."

"The recipes in this book are so wonderful, I almost ate the book!"

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In his enthusiastic introduction, John Berendt, author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, writes: "Authentic Southern food is not about pretension." Sure enough, this book by the proprietor of The Lady & Sons restaurant in Savannah, Ga., doesn't put on any airs. A great many recipes unabashedly list prepared foods among the ingredients. As an appetizer, Garlic Cheese Spread includes an eight-ounce package of cream cheese and an eight-ounce jar of Cheez-Whiz. Shrimp or Lobster Bisque contains, in addition to seafood, a can each of condensed tomato soup and condensed mushroom soup. The restaurant's most popular dessert is Gooey Butter Cakes, which starts with a box of Duncan Hines yellow cake mix. Still, some of the recipes attain a high level of regional authenticity: Georgia Cracker Salad is made with crushed saltines, tomato, scallions, hard-boiled egg and mayonnaise; Southern Fried Chicken acquires its crispy coating with a batter of eggs and self-rising flour. Readers concerned about high fat content should skip this book. But those looking for some distinctively American comfort foodand in a mood for some decidedly anti-nouvelle regressionmight want to take a peek. (May)
Library Journal
Savannah's popularity as a tourist destination has increased dramatically in the months that John Berendt's Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil has been on the New York Times best sellers list, and in his introduction to this cookbook, Berendt says Deen's restaurant is one he recommends to visitors as exemplifying "the very heart of Southern cooking." Deen (the Lady) says Southern cooking is "comfort food," and she and her two sons serve homey, completely unpretentious food at their popular downtown restaurant. Many of the recipes she includes here rely on convenience foods (canned soup, Cheese Whiz) and some have been perennial favorites in "community" cookbooks since the Fifties or Sixties. Area libraries will want copies; most others can skip.

    Too plain...

    Maybe it's just me, but every cookbook should have at least some photographs of prepared meals. This one has NONE, and it was very dissapointing to see Paula create a cookbook with no photos of her great meals. Don't get me wrong - I love the personality of this woman and I love to watch her shows. However, this cookbook has done nothing for me but created dissapointment. If I see a photo of a great looking meal, it makes me want to prepare that meal, but when I have a plain receipe staring at my face, that's intimidating...

    like being a child again

    I have had the pleasure of both receiving this cookbook as a gift, and later eating at Paula's place in Savannah. Her food is the epitome of Southern cooking. It's simple, yet rich. I found several recipes that were identical to ones that my late grandmomma took to her grave. Eating her food, whether at home or at her laid-back eatery in Savannah makes me feel like I am a child again in South Carolina, eating my grandmomma's hoe cakes and butter beans, or Aunt Nita's greens and cakes. Thanks for the trip back, Paula!!

    True Savannah Southern Cooking

    As a Savannah native, I grew up eatting some of the best cooking including a great deal of the receipes in this book. Paula Deen, who is a fantastic lady if you ever get to meet her, has captured the best of Savannah and the Low Country cooking in this book. If you are ever in the Savannah area, you need to go to Paula's restaurant in City Market. It is some of the best cooking you will ever have!

    Lady & Sons: Savannah Country Cookbook

    The book is filled with good honest southern dishes. Reminds me of country cooking from the midwest.

    A MUST HAVE

    I have never been inclined to write a review until now. I have all of 'Lady and Sons'. They are, by far, the best cookbooks EVER! I have tried many of the recipies and they all have been wonderful. The Snickers Pie is only one of my favorites. If you are looking for a cookbook that has the best homestyle cooking, you will find it here. Definetly a must have on your shelf!!

    Wow! Recipes that you can really use.

    This is the best cookbook I have found in a long time. I love all the hints and the tips in the back of the book. Paula is a true Southerner. The recipes are easy to follow. I have made 5 dishes so far and they have all turned out wonderful. Keep write'em and we'll keep buyin'em.

    An Awesome Cookbook

    This cookbook is simply divine. I love the bio about the author and she does everything with syle and grace. Her shows on Food Network are just the icing on the cake. Her food has flavor,texture and taste as well as eye appeal.

    Great recipes and a good read

    If you like food and Savannah, you'll love this one! So fine, it's not gourmet...who cares. It's yummy-sounding recipes for the way most of America cooks.

    Superb Cooking

    Loved the cookbook. It was a gift from my mother. The ingredients are not strange and hard to find. The dishes are something the whole family can enjoy, including my four year old. The recipes cover a wide variety from everyday cooking, to great guy snacks to fancy dinners.

    RE: Ebook

    Not happy because the index page numbers do not correlate with the page numbers and there is a reference to some recipes in the content that are not even in the book.

    The Lady's Chicken Noodle Soup

    We love The Lady's Chicken Noodle Soup! We were fortunate enough to visit The Lady & Sons restaurant in Savannah, where I purchased my first Paula Deen cookbook. I liked it so much, I picked up The Lady & Sons Savannah Country Cookbook as a wedding gift for a friend. The bride told me she is very excited to try some of the recipes.

    One of my favorite cookbooks!

    I purchased this book as a gift for the mother of a visiting British friend because I wanted to give her something "American". This book exemplified American home cooking at its best without a lot of fuss. We have several favorite family recipes including Jamie's Chicken Salad, Black Bean Salsa and Broccoli Salad. I still have so many I want to try! A must for a cook's library!
