Overview

Welcome to Nathalie Dupree's South, a place of ladies' luncheons, bake sales, fresh fish dinners, and pit barbecue, where time seems to move a bit more slowly and where fresh, flavorful food is an indispensable part of everyday life. For years, television host and author Nathalie Dupree has led the renaissance of Southern cooking, bringing the best of the region's fare to the rest of the country. Now available in paperback for the first time, Nathalie Dupree's Southern Memories is the culmination of her lasting love affair with Southern food and Southern living. It is a heartfelt tribute to the people and places that have shaped her philosophy of cooking and entertaining.

Join Nathalie as she explores the glorious South, from the oyster beds of North Carolina to the rice fields of Louisiana, with dozens of delicious stops in between and foolproof recipes for more than 150 regional favorites. This culinary tour of the region she has called home for more than forty years pays homage to the old and the new. Offering recipes for such Southern classics as Hopping John, Frogmore Stew, Angel Biscuits, and Country Ham Cooked in Coca-Cola, Nathalie also presents a hearty helping of less traditional fare, including Beef Tenderloin with Oysters Rockefeller Sauce and a savory Vidalia Onion Tart.

Gorgeous full-color photographs capture the South's gracious ambience, and Nathalie's personal reminiscences highlight the history and customs that have influenced the way Southerners eat today. For anyone who has longed to step into Nathalie's world as seen on her PBS series, Southern Memories will be as welcome as a cool iced tea on a hot summer day.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Nathalie Dupree writes about food like no one else—with warmth, passion, and an unmistakable style of her own—but nowhere is her voice clearer, or more irresistibly charming, than in this timeless classic."—Damon Lee Fowler, author of Classical Southern Cooking

"Rich with classic and modern recipes. The pictures of the dishes are so beautiful, you might be tempted to take a bite out of the page.”—Library Journal

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Southerner Dupree ( Nathalie Dupree Cooks for Family and Friends ), a restaurateuse, columnist and television host, reflects, ``My South is the South where I ate fried fish for my wedding supper on the island of Ocracoke . . . the South is my soul.'' Here she feeds the body, too, with such favorites as ``Fish Muddle'' (a stew), fried catfish, microwave peanut brittle and other no-nonsense indulgences from south of the Mason-Dixon line. Pure pleasure has rarely been so immediately apparent in a culinary album: pictured plenty beams from almost every page, and it's unsurprising to find a ``Spring Garden Cake'' adorned with candied violets at rest in one photo under lavishly draped festoons of wisteria. Dupree's vision combines comfort with luxury as though there were no other choice; her taste is never pretentious, and her scruples about buttermilk, shortening and bacon are few and far between. But that's the South, and she doesn't reform it, leaving that chore to whatever Puritans may remain and inviting the rest of us to enjoy a full and flavorful repast. (Oct.)
Library Journal
