Lots of folk have read "Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe," by Fannie Flagg. Even more have seen the movie, "Fried Green Tomatoes" <and was anybody else concerned about the movie's ambiguous ending?>. I read Ms. Flagg's cookbook with delight, anticipation, more than a few hunger pangs, and a profound sense of relief that somebody, somewhere had the good sense to preserve these fine old dishes of the deep South and pass them on. Her recipe for "Chicken'n'Dumplings" matches the faded 3x5 card version I inherited from my mother almost to a tee. Her "Fried Chicken" is enough to send the health-conscious into a coma! Well, y'all. Welcome south. We fry things down here, but at least the food has some flavor and texture. Take "Fried Green Tomatoes," as one example. You can't "boil" green tomatoes; nor can they be broiled, roasted, or baked. Honey, they gots to be FRIED. But one bite, and your taste buds done boarded the glory train to paradise, 'specially if you wash it down with the "house wine of the south" <thanks to "Steel Magnolias">, a big tall glass of homemade ice-tea.
Miss Flagg's cookbook brought back a comforting time of nostalgia, when momma's Sunday dinners were a treat looked for all week long, and us kids hated it when the preacher came by of a Sunday evening. It also brought back several dishes I thought had perished when the Interstate Highway system destroyed the back byways and unimproved roads that lead to the "old home place(s)" throughout the South. The ham and "red-eye" gravy recipe alone is worth the cost of the book, and even a Yankee girl can make it if she takes her time and doesn't try to "fix" it.
Salt abounds. Calories flourish. Fats lurk everywhere.

I know how to boil water, but beyond that, I know nothing about cooking. However, I have the good fortune to be married to the best cook in the western hemisphere, and she loves cookbooks. I bought this one for her, but as it turns out, I have enjoyed reading it more than my wife has. Fannie Flagg is the best novelist ever, of all time, having written the best novel of all time, "Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe". Not only does this cookbook reveal the secrets of down home southern cooking, which makes all other cooking around the world seem, well, second rate, it is also chock filled with all kinds of funny, wise, make you want to laugh and cry at the samet time, literary nuggets that only Fannie can do in her unimitatable style. (Ok, Ok, I'm from Alabama, so maybe I'm a little bit prejudiced)
I promise you, you need to order this book. You will love the little tidbits of info that is sprinkled into this book like a master chef sprinkling spice onto a materpiece dish. For example, did you know that "Hush puppies", a southern treat made of corn meal, onions, etc. was originally created as a cheap food made to feed to dogs to make them quit barking from hunger?
No matter where you are from, North, South, or some foriegn place like France or California, I guarantee you will love the recipes, the wonderful photograghs of the rural, southern cafes, and the incomparable anecdotes by America's literary equivalent of Norman Rockwell.

I was born/raised in the south and moved north 13 years ago. After moving into "yankee country" I began to search for a southern cookbook which had recipes I remembered from my childhood: buttermilk pancakes,fried chicken,barbecued chicken,southern cream gravy,fried green tomatoes,fried okra,and banana pudding just to name a few for starters. I wanted the cookbook to have been authored by a southerner, that way I knew the recipes would be authentic. There is nothing worse than to purchase a southern cookbook only to find it has been authored by someone who was born/raised in New York City. What do they know about the southern way of life, particularly food? One day while in a used bookstore I stumbled onto this "jewel" of a cookbook. I grew up watching Fannie Flagg on television as a child and have enjoyed reading her books as an adult. I knew she was a southerner, so she was someone I could trust. Her cookbook is a "goldmine" of recipes. They are written the way I remember my grandmother/mother preparing them for a meal, they taste just like I remember!Who needs salad, tofu and bean sprouts when you can eat fried chicken, buttermilk biscuits, mashed pototaoes with gravy and top it off with a piece of pecan pie? My advice to you is to purchase the book and dig in!

I bought this cookbook because I loved the movie (of course) and because I was a military wife at the time and living far away from my southern homeland. I grew up eating southern food, but somehow, I never learned to make it (there was always an abundance of those kind of women in the kitchen, making biscuits from scratch and fatback and greens). I figured this book would help. It's written in the true style of a southern scratch cook - one has to use a bit of common sense - but you won't be disappointed. And let me say, the key lime pie recipe is absolutely DIVINE!!! None of that watered down Red Lobster stuff; this thing is full of tangy flavor and soooooo easy to make. Some of the other recipes take a bit more work, but stick with them, they'll do ya good. THe homilies and old-fashioned pictures make the book a joy to read as well, and Ms. Flagg is over the top in the very best way with her southern girl sass. If you have a drop of southern blood or at the very least a love of the South, it'll bring a tear to your eye. The very highest recommendation and thanks for writing it.
As a quick aside, my grandfather's favorite evening snack was something (obviously) not included in this book. Make yourself up a batch of Martha White white cornbread, fill up a tall glass with WHOLE milk, crumble in the cornbread until mush, and eat it up with a spoon. It's called soakie, and Granddaddy would just as soon as not have used buttermilk, but I never could stomach that. It's a tasty treat!
