I bought this book over 10 years ago because I was such a huge fan of the movie (and still am!). I also love to cook, and consistently, I pull this cookbook out more than any other. As others have recognized, this book contains those recipes that you wish you had from your own great-grandmother, and are all very practical but delicious.
Even if you never mixed up a single recipe, the humor and wonderful old photographs and stories in this book would be worth its price, and then some. I highly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of the movie, country cooking, or the South.

No longer do I have to put store bought food in a piece of Pyrex and take it to a family reunion. I am happy to say that I can make all the delicious food from 'down home". The biscuits, gravy, pies, chicken and dumplings, the list goes on and on, all are easy to make with a short list of ingredients. Now, if I could learn to talk southern...

Back home in Georgia, we'd get together and eat. Sometimes, we'd eat each other, but mostly we ate Momma's fried chicken, some of Gladis's potato salad, and a mess of Mother Burnside's turnip greens. . .We'd eat until we was about to bust. . .then we'd have homemade ice-cream and watermelon cooled in the stream. . .then we'd sit on the porch and just talk. . .
Ms. Flagg's cookbook calls back those days, when the parson would stop by for Sunday Dinner, and us kids would be jealous and angry because the reverend would ask us a bible study question, and the child that got it right would get that last runner < a chicken leg for you Yankee readers>. . . and if we missed, that leg went to the parson, and we went just a little bit hungry.
Ms. Flagg's recipes are "comfort food." Read as "Southern Comfort Food." Need a snack? Sipsey's "Fried Green Tomatoes" will lift you to realms unknown. Depressed? Try the "Chicken 'N' Dumplings." Go to taste heaven you never dreamed existed! And you think you know bar-be-que? You don't know jack, sailor. . .In the south, it's bar-b-q. . . And bar-be-que starts <starts, mind you> with half a hog. . .Yankess don't have hogs, they have "pigs," and there, as Shakespeare observed, "lies all the diference."
Buy this book. . .Eat some "good eatin'"
You yankees come down, ya hear. . .you'll go home fatter, happier, and a li'll bit fatter. . .but that boild stuff y'all eat. . .never gonna taste good again. . .
Y'all just remember. . ."Secret's in the Sauce!"

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.
