Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Fans of Food Network personality Paula Deen are well acquainted with her sons, Jamie and Bobby, through her program, as well as their own culinary travel show, Road Tasted. This companion piece to the series recounts their visits to mom-and-pop establishments across the country, alongside the Deens' own take on featured establishments' signature dishes. Readers need not be familiar with the program to find the book useful, as the brothers offer a selection of dishes ranging from regional specialties such as Lobster Rolls and Brats to Truffles and Rosemary Lamb Chops. Some recipes, such as a basic cole slaw, require little preparation, and more involved recipes like Crab Corn Cakes with Basil-Jalapeno Sauce are still relatively easy to prepare. The focus on specific locales and their dishes elevates the book a step above most of its type; instead of offering a basic recipe for grits, for example, the Deens offer a twist: add two ounces of goat cheese. Traditional thumbprint cookies benefit from incorporating ground pecans into the dough, which is then rolled in chopped pecans; corn bread is greatly enhanced by the chopped bacon and sautéed apples folded into the batter. These memorable touches guarantee that this cookbook will quickly become dog-eared from regular use. (Apr.)

Melissa Clark
The stars of the new prime time Food Network show Road Tasted, Jamie and Bobby Deen know great regional food inside and out-and their much-anticipated first cookbook delivers just what their fans are hungry for: the best recipes inspired by their tastiest discoveries on the road and personal stories of the people who make and serve some of the fabulous foods they encountered on their journey. Born in Georgia, Jamie and Bobby are the sons of famous Food Network host and best-selling cookbook author Paula Deen. The boys got their start in the food business back in 1989 when their mom hired them to deliver sandwiches. The three Deens joined forces to open a restaurant in Savannah, The Lady and Sons, which led to Paula's cookbook series and popular Food Network show. These two good-old-boy charmers are frequent guests on Paula's Home Cooking and beloved by Food Network audiences. Writer Melissa Clark from Brooklyn has spent her entire professional life associated with food. Her work appears in The New York Times, Food & Wine, Travel & Leisure, and Real Simple. She has also collaborated on 17 cookbooks, one of which received both a James Beard award and the Julia Child Cookbook award in 2000.

    Disappointing Collection

    I greatly anticipated this book as I enjoy watching all of the Deen's on television and they come up with some clever recipes but this book was an extreme disappointment. The quality of the pictures, layout, paper is excellent but the recipes are many times so simplistic that it is almost insulting to suggest an every day cook couldn't think of it on their own. Giving the benefit of the doubt, this may be good for beginning cooks who have never had a spoon in their hand but if you have any experience at all, wait for this to be on a yard sale before purchasing. You will have a traveling experience - which is the impression I got after looking through it page by page twice. The thought that came to me was, "these fellas needed an excuse to write off their travels". I look forward to better cookbooks from them forthcoming.

    One of my favorite new cookbooks

    I love Paul Deen, and thought this book looked fun - and I was right! This has actually become a coffee table book for me, because of the gorgeous illustrations and photos, fun stories, and of course delicious recipes. I read it from cover to cover when I bought it! I highly recommend this one, especially if you are a cookbook junkie like me!

    Deen Bros.

    Essentially it's a cookbook featuring recipes from many restaurants around the country, which they've adapted. (Why can't I get a job like this?) It's divided into The South, The West, The Midwest, and The East. (I'll do everything in between!) The boys (I hope they don't mind being called that) start off in Key West, in particular at the Conch Republic Seafood Company. You can see my complete review on my non-fiction book review website. Yahoo! search using keyword PettProjects.
