Down South- Book Review
This cookbook has a great variety of recipes. The photos are beautiful and I enjoyed learning more about the South in general. Each recipe has a background story or a tidbit of info about it. I really like the layout of the book and how easy to read it is.
I was a little disappointed as most of the recipes are a bit fancier than I was expecting for Southern food. Maybe fancy is not the word I want but maybe a bit more sophisticated like restaurant feel than home cooking. I did find a few recipes I will be trying like the smoked chicken thighs, yeast rolls, and chocolate chunk monster cookies. Of course I had to tell my boys there is a recipe included for frog legs. The frogs in our yard though are teeny tiny so they won't have to worry about ending up in my kitchen.
I think this would be a great cookbook for someone who likes to have dinner parties or even leave out on the coffee table for company to look through since it contains more than just recipes and photos of food.
