Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Ferrell purchased Mary Mac's Tea Room in 1994. He here shares a brief history of the restaurant, which in the 1940s was one of 16 tea rooms in Atlanta, and includes historical photographs and biographies of past and present owners and staff members. With plenty of traditional Southern recipes accessible to novices—from Daddy's Oyster Stew and Chicken and Southern Dumplings to Crawfish Gumbo and Country Cheese Grits—this part history, part cookbook is recommended for Southern libraries and is bound to inspire travelers.
