Sharing a meal around the table is the perfect expression of all things Southern: hospitality, grace, humor, and a devotion to great food. Author Rebecca Lang--a professionally trained chef and lifelong Southerner--makes the reader feel right at home, with pre-meal sips on the porch, indulgent dinners laced with bacon, decadent desserts, and messy morning-after breakfasts with biscuit crumbs and homemade jelly. These are the recipes that fill our memories of family and home, pull readers into the kitchen, and leave them fulfilled at the table. Essays from well-known and much-loved Southerners--like Chick-Fil-A founder Truett S. Cathy and novelist Cassandra King--pepper the chapters with wisdom, humor, and insights gained from time spent at their own dining tables. Better yet, Around the Southern Table is filled with recipes for dishes that Southerners crave and cherish for everyday as well as special occasions. From mouthwatering main dishes like Shrimp and Grits or Stuffed Meatloaf to classic desserts like Lemon Pie or Pound Cake and Peach Ice Cream, every recipe tells a story, and, more importantly, is absolutely delicious. Each and every recipe is 100% homemade from-scratch and 100% Southern. This book invites you to pull up a chair at your favorite table and make great food and unforgettable memories of your own.

Really enjoy this cookbook! The recipes are great and I really like the pictures of what the finished product is to look like. As an engineer with details in mind, it really helps. The Humming Bird Cake has very quickly become a family favorite.
