“I normally don’t gobble my food. . . . But during a mid-November lunch in Savannah, Georgia, I shamefully lost control. And wound up ingesting my meal of the year. . . . Paula Deen’s home-style Southern menu at The Lady & Sons turned me into a ravenous beast unminded of manners, cholesterol, North-South diplomacy, and the dropped jaws of my companions. . . . If someone had reached for my plate, he’d have lost a limb.”
–Jerry Shriver, USA Today
From the Hardcover edition.

That is almost exactly the same opening paragraph I used for Paula's first book. It is as true of the second book as it was of the first, even down to the plastic amateur binding which makes the Random House imprimatur so surprising.
One of the few differences between the first and the second books is that the second adds more details to how Paula and her sons came to establish their restaurant. Another difference is that only a very few of the recipes are cited as dishes served at Paula's restaurant. A third difference is that Paula strays a bit outside the standard Southern culinary canon. Some distinctly French and Italian standards such as steak au pauvre and pasta Puttanesca sauce have found their way into the book. My humble opinion on the Italian dishes is that a few important details of the proper techniques are missing, but your result from following these recipes will be quite acceptable.
Like the first volume, almost all of the recipes call for a reasonable number of easily obtained ingredients and require a relatively few steps. Many recipes call for prepared or processed ingredients such as canned soups, packaged rice dishes, and Velveeta.Read more ›
