Editorial Reviews

Dallas Morning News, 11/5/10
This cookbook, which you'll know at a glance is Southern, categorizes more than 800 recipes mainly by ingredient. Where else would you also find entire chapters devoted to Coca-Cola, crawfish, grits and macaroni and cheese, as well as apples, corn and zucchini? Gravy gets its own chapter, too, with recipes for red-eye, sausage and tasso ham varieties. Author Tammy Algood mingles classic and new, sometimes with folksy, descriptive names, such as Dressed-for-Sunday Black-eyed Peas and Easy-Street Oven-Fried Okra. Navigating the recipes by ingredient is different, but gems like Andouille Grilled Grits and Sweet Potato Spoon Bread make the adjustment worthwhile.

Boston Herald’s Fork Lift food blog, 10/27/10
"… 800 recipes that will have you whistling Dixie."

Nashville Scene,10/28/10
She brings a no-nonsense instructional voice to the ambitious inch-and-a-half-thick tome — which is conveniently organized around 85 ingredients — and plates it with an endearing side of nostalgia for her grandmother's kitchen. With multiple dishes per page, Algood's short recipes are practical and manageable… In an era of chef-personalities who fill their cookbooks with glamour shots of themselves holding even more glamorous dishes, Algood relies on the character of the recipes. Hers is not a coffee-table book; it's a kitchen-counter book.

Tampa Bay.com 11/10/10
"When Tammy Algood talks of Southern food, she speaks of abundance. … Her 800-recipe book, The Complete Southern Cookbook, celebrates that bounty with traditional and tweaked favorites of her beloved South."

DailyCady.com, 11/18/10
"…old-timey, no-nonsense primer for taking your kitchen below the Mason-Dixon. It’s got everything you could hope for…" 

The Times-Picayune, October 14, 2010
"Any book with a chapter on gravy wins my heart. The author, based in Nashville, Tenn., delivers the goods from almonds to zucchini in an unusual food-by-food chapter format."

Tampa Bay.com 11/10/10
"When Tammy Algood talks of Southern food, she speaks of abundance. … Her 800-recipe book, The Complete Southern Cookbook, celebrates that bounty with traditional and tweaked favorites of her beloved South." 

BookPage, December, 2010
"Worthy of landing on your holiday gift list. … Tammy Algood has taken an ingredient-oriented approach…Each ingredient comes with info on nutrition, preparation, selection and storage and a succulent array of down-home recipes."

"When Tammy Algood talks of Southern food, she speaks of abundance. … Her 800-recipe book, The Complete Southern Cookbook, celebrates that bounty with traditional and tweaked favorites of her beloved South."

Chapter16.org, a publication of Humanities Tennessee, 11/22/10
Tammy Algood emphasizes seasonality and freshness in The Complete Southern Cookbook, an ambitious collection of the South’s best recipes…. At a time when bookstore shelves are sagging with glossy, Food Network-style cookbooks, Tammy Algood’s The Complete Southern Cookbook is an anomaly. It contains no stylish pictures or fancy ingredients, no delectable yet impossible-to-pull-off meal plans. But what Algood’s book lacks in glitz it makes up for in practicality—which is, after all, what most home chefs really need. In crisp, no-nonsense recipes, Algood takes readers on a virtual tour of the Southern kitchen. From Brownie Mint Julep Soufflé to Eggplant Green Tomato Kebabs to nine different recipes for fried chicken, The Complete Southern Cookbook has something for every home chef, regardless of region or skill level."'

Ann Weber, Bellarmine Coll. Preparatory, San José, CA, for Library Journal’s Express Review
The South is famous for hospitality, and this book is chock-full of recipes that will complement gracious living… Even if some of the regional cuisine is not appealing, everyone will find something among the numerous recipes. Because the book features seasonal foods, freshness is a key ingredient. There is plenty of healthy Southern cuisine, and this book showcases it. A substantial basic cookbook.
