About this title


This entertaining, anecdotal cookbook presents the best of southern home cooking in more than 150 recipes made with your good health in mind. From appetizers to desserts, here are dishes you can eat without feeling guilty. Includes vintage photos and entertaining anecdotes about a way of life in which good eating has always played a major role. Illustrations.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Parker, a Natchez, Mississippi, caterer and eye-batting food writer, is aware that Southern cooking currently ranks high in both fashion points and nutritional no-nos; hence, her attempt to devise more healthful versions of traditional foods and dishes. Her solutions include oven-``fried'' chicken, greens without grease, and canola oil or margarine in place of bacon fat or butter. Southern cooks looking to lighten up might find some tips here, though the amounts of margarine and sweeteners and eggs and other items such as sour cream keep this far from the health-food- cookbook category: A sweet-potato cake with ricotta filling, for example, calls for one-and-a-half cups of oil, two cups of sugar, and four eggs to one-and-a-half cups of sweet potato, with one-and- a-half cups of confectioner's sugar to two-and-a-half pounds of skim-milk ricotta for the filling. And Parker's prose can be just as cloying. (Forty photographs- -not seen.) -- Copyright 1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
