I love Southern cooking. It means comfort food to me. The Southern Foodie by Chris Chamberlain combines two of my favorite things … home cooking and exploring new restaurants that serve delicious food. The recipes in this book come from 13 different states and draw from some of the best food establishments in the South.
This recipe book is unique. It has recipes of course, but it also has interesting facts about each restaurant including comments on the atmosphere, specialties, and insider tips. It can be used as a food travel guide. The bonus is that you also get to cook these tried and true recipes in your own kitchen.
This is more than just a cookbook. I love to travel, so I can see myself seeking out some of these restaurants to have a firsthand experience; ordering the food I recreated in my own kitchen. Now stop reading my review, get the book and start cooking … or if you prefer, it’s time for a foodie road trip!
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
