    Some Recipes Not Clear

    The Southern Foodie by Chris Chamberlain was the first cookbook I have ever reviewed, especially on a kindle. The moment you open the cookbook on kindle you get right into the index.

    On my food blog, Whine and Cheese, I featured some of the recipes. The recipes are great, but some do not explain clearly on how to prepare the ingredients. In one recipe, I wasn't sure if I should cook the fresh collard greens. In the Southwest, we do not have canned collard greens on the shelves. It's distinctly southern. But we do have them fresh in the produce section. Having never tried collard greens, I didn't know whether collard greens are steamed or what-not, and had to guess.

    The stories of the different restaurants in the south read like a review. They were less interesting than the recipes themselves. The recipes I tried turned out great, and since I usually substitute or improve upon any recipe, that is not a detriment to the book. I have decided to keep the cookbook on my kindle and not delete it. I am still working on trying the recipes.

    I would recommend the book to anyone curious about southern cuisine. Just don't expect the narratives on the restaurants to excite you as the shows on the Food Network or to read like Rachel Ray's travel/recipe book. I gave this book four stars. Book given by publisher to review.

    I recently got The Southern Foodie- 100 Places to Eat in the South Before You Die and the Recipes That Made Them Famous by Chris Chamberlain to review. This is not only a cookbook, full of delicious recipes from the south, but also a documentary about famous restaurants and the chefs that made these recipes famous. Included are 134 recipes from 100 top chefs in Thirteen southern states.

    Also included with each recipe is the address, website, and phone number for each restaurant, in case you can't get enough of this yummy southern food! This book is also full of tasty looking pictures of many of the things that you can cook.

    Some examples of the types of recipes that are included are:

    Prejean's Sweet Louisiana Pralines from "Ralph's on the Park," in New Orleans, Louisiana.

    Buttermilk Biscuits from "Old Chickahominy House," in Williamsburg, Virginia.

    Country Ham Fritters from "Proof on Main," in Louisville, Kentucky.

    Many of the recipes in this book are pretty simple, and can easily be made with many of the ingredients that you have at home. But a few of the recipes may not be suitable for beginners. I tried making the Pralines, and as I've heard before, I realized that practice does make perfect. I noticed that you definitely should read through the recipes completely before starting, otherwise it is much easier to make a mistake. I like that some of the places that Chris Chamberlain gathered are from, not only fancy southern restaurants, but also smaller, more casual restaurants.

    I found this to be a very interesting book to just sit down and look through. It is neat to learn about how a restaurant started, or what everyone seems to like so much about it. I think that this would be a great book for someone who is interested in learning about the food and culture in the south, and how to cook food from many famous restaurants, big or small.

    BookSneeze® has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of this review. All opinions that I have expressed are my own.

    Perfect addition for your cookbook collection

    Being a southern gal, I can tell you I know southern food, so I was excited to receive The Southern Foodie by Chris Chamberlain for review. Some of the recipes featured are true southern dishes while others could better be classified as "fancy" southern cooking. Regardless, though, my husband and I found lots of new dishes we would like to try out and plenty of restaurants that we will be visiting in the future.

    I love the page-long introductions to each restaurant. They provide an initial description and alert visitors to dishes that are not to be missed. Each intro also provides hints about the type of cuisine, atmosphere, specialties, and insider tips.

    The Southern Foodie is the perfect addition to any foodie's cookbook collection and would make a wonderful gift. [4 stars]

    I received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson's Booksneeze program in exchange for my fair and honest review.

    I spent many years in the south, some of the recipes even come from a town only a few minutes from where I lived. It was great to read about all these truly southern dishes! While I'm vegetarian now I still enjoyed many of these dishes and adapted some to fit my dietary plan. My husband is a major seafood lover, me don't like the smell. I blame living with the smell for years! :) So he has enjoyed this cookbook review very much and thanks Booksneeze and Me for agreeing to review it.

    If you are looking for a great cookbook then check out The Southern Foodie there is a recipe for everyone. Who doesn't like come good, old fashioned southern cooking! :) I know I do! It's comfort food to the core.

    thank you booksneeze for allowing me to review The Southern Foodie 100 Places to Eat in the South Before You Die (with a smile on your face)

    The Southern Foodie100 Places to Eat in the South Before You Die (and the Recipes That Made Them Famous)

    By Chris Chamberlain

    Great Southern Hospitality. I love to cook and this book was terrific. I loved how Chris Chamberlain went all over the South to big and small restaurants and compiled their favorite recipes and shared them with everyone. Since I was small I use to love to entertain it is wonderful to share a meal at the dinner table with special friends and family. This cook book helps you reconnect with the comfort food of the South. One of my favorite dishes that I was able to share with special friends at work was The Apricot Fried Pies. They were a hit and it was very nice to see your friends savor every bite. I would recommend this book to all those Foodies and share the experience of the South. Get your eats on.
