Mary Mac’s Tea Room is a legacy and cornerstone in the Southern dining tradition in Atlanta, Georgia.

In Mary Mac's Tea Room, author and owner John Ferrell brings together over 100 classic recipes from this venerable institution of Southern comfort food.

When Mary Mac's opened in 1945, it was one of 16 tea rooms around Atlanta, Georgia. More than 70 years later, it stands alone in carrying on the tradition of bringing great Southern cooking to everyone from blue collar workers to celebrities.

Now you can bring home many of the restaurant's famed recipes, along with richly illustrated photography, old menus, postcards, and artwork from its magnificent history.

About the Author:

John Ferrell purchased Mary Mac's Tea Room in 1994 from the original owner. Margaret Lupo handpicked Ferrell to share her historic business and recipes, and her vast knowledge of down-home Southern food. Ferrell has expanded the business while still maintaining the beloved traditions of "Atlanta's Dining Room."

Mary Mac's Tea Room has been serving up classic Southern comfort food to the people of Atlanta, Georgia, since opening in 1945. The last of the city's old Southern tea rooms, Mary Mac's thrives today, serving more than 1,000 customers every day.

From Booklist:

Mary Mac’s Tea Room, an Atlanta institution, had prospered under two different owners since its beginnings in 1945. In the early 1990s, new owners almost bankrupted the restaurant—and left it on dining life-support. New owner (and author) Ferrell came to the rescue, who, with friends, family, and no little elbow grease, restored its innards—and its soul—to serve 1,000 meals every day. This is a homey 125-recipes-with-stories cookbook, filled with southern dishes such as pot likker (the juice from greens), hush puppies, and oyster stew. Check your cholesterol-reducing statins at the table; after all, the first sentence in many of these recipe instructions is “Line a plate with paper towels and set aside.” The preparations are simple, with equally as streamlined ingredients (though one might scratch a head trying to figure out where to find, for instance, a large whole chicken hen). Even more heart-warming are the anecdotes of local and international customers (Tim Conway and Ted Danson, to name just two), the servers, the chefs and line cooks, and the just plain funny tales. --Barbara Jacobs
