"Jones continues to be the master at creating dishes to excite your taste buds. Delicious!" --Donna Hodge, food editor, N'DIGO magapaper

Crawfish étoufée, Chicken Fried Steak, Creamed Spinach, Mixed Berry Cobbler. . .Is your mouth watering yet? These decadent, flavor-rich dishes are part of the long Southern tradition of "smothered" foods.

Rooted in the author's upbringing and peppered throughout with personal anecdotes, Smothered Southern Foods explains the simple art of "smothering" as nothing more complicated than covering one food with another food or sauce, while baking or braising the dish in a covered skillet or pot. Vegetables, meats, and even desserts can be smothered, and the results are any food lover's delight.

With tips on buying and storing vegetables, easy-to-follow directions and serving suggestions, and recipes for 105 mouthwatering favorites, Smothered Southern Foods is a delicious way to bring the true taste of the South into your own home, the way Southern chefs have cooked for generations.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Although smothered may conjure up visions of foods cooked in a rich sauce-such as Crawfish Etouf e or Ham and Red-Eye Gravy-the term actually refers to any food cooked in a covered pot with some liquid. Jones's new book, then, includes both the aforementioned classic dishes and simpler recipes such as Okra and Tomatoes and Hot and Spicy Chicken. Jones is the author of The New Soul Food Cookbook and Mama's Tea Cakes, and here again he includes many treasured family recipes and stories about growing up in the Mississippi Delta. For most collections on regional cooking. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
