Southern Food cover October's Book
Southern Food: At Home, on the Road, in History
by John Egerton

Southern Food is a feast of a book—a tribute to his native region’s traditional foodways and the generations of creative cooks who invented and refined them by an accomplished researcher and writer of history. John Egerton is also a Southern boy who knows good catfish or barbecue when he tastes it, and Southern Food spotlights some 200 restaurants where loving hands still cook it up right. And as the title promises, it also offers a wealth of home-tested recipes for those who want to preserve some of these traditions on their own. Part travelogue, part cookbook, part history, Southern Food is delicious reading, whether devoured all at once or sampled again and again.
