Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This collection of the homestyle Southern dishes Jones prepares at his Queens, N.Y., restaurant brims with familiar favorites, such as Corn and Smoked Oyster Fritters, and Collard Greens and Turnip Greens with Smoked Ham Hocks and Smoked Neck Bones. While Jones claims to have a "healthier" approach to Southern cooking, it's hard to see the evidence here. He may substitute canola oil for Crisco, for example, but there's still plenty of fried food: witness Potato Pancakes, Crab Cakes, and Southern Fried Chicken, to name just a few. The occasional head notes are chatty and friendly, if somewhat self-serving (e.g., "My wife often reminds me that not everyone shares the same passion for spending endless hours researching information about food and cooking techniques as I do"). Though some home cooks may be pleased to find straightforward recipes for Waffles, Grilled Boneless Pork Chops, Meat Loaf, and Potato Salad, there's nothing that distinguishes this simple, unadorned book from others on Southern cuisine.

Meet the Author

Richard L. Jones has been the executive chef of Richard's Place since 1994. Raised in a strict Southern household with seven older siblings, Chef Jones spent many a Sunday at his deacon father's side watching a traditional meal take shape. This collection of recipes is as much an homage to his father's talents as it is to Chef Jones' love of New York's multiethnic cooking and the constant inspiration he finds in converting his Northern clientele into soul-food fans.
In addition to his frequent appearances on the Television Food Network, Chef Jones is the recipient of several culinary and community awards, including GQ magazine's Golden Dish Award and the Congressional Award for Entrepreneurial Excellence.
