9780026220156: My Mother's Southern Kitchen: Recipes and Reminiscences

The food and wine editor for Town and Country presents a collection of 265 simple, no-nonsense Southern recipes--everything from Barbecued Spareribs to Sweet Potato Biscuits. Intertwined with colorful family lore, bits of nostalgia, and cooking tips, the recipes are drawn from Martha Pearl Villas' sacred black cookbook, compiled over decades.

Review:

James Villas' background is an unusual blend of Greek, Swedish and old American South, and this book combines the recipes and often-hilarious cooking tips of his genteel-yet-feisty mama, Martha Pearl (Martha Pearl says: "There's nothing, repeat nothing, worse than a heavy, poorly seasoned, warmed-over hush puppy that's been fried in old fat") with memories of a happy gourmet childhood.
