Southern Snacks: 77 Recipes for Small Bites with Big Flavors

SOUTHERN SNACKS                                     PERRE MAGNESS

This cookbook is dedicated to the truth that southerners are just as skilled and generous with the snack as they are with their bounteous, overflowing meals. In seventy-seven recipes that range from classic to contemporary, Perre Coleman Magness embraces the southern approach to snacking, including all the small bites you'll need for any event, whether a football game, a party, or if things are looking down, a funeral. Many of the recipes are inspired by southern community cookbooks, home cooks, and chefs who put new twists on southern flavors.

Highlighting local ingredients and traditional techniques, these snacks--from Fried Dill Pickles with Delta Comeback Sauce to Louisiana's Natchitoches Meat Pies and Charleston's Benne Wafers--shine a light on the diversity of regionally distinct southern cuisine. The contemporary recipes work ingeniously with familiar southern ingredients, from Field Pea Hummus and Country Ham Pate to Smoked Catfish Spread and Sweet Tea Pecans. The recipes are enriched with delightful stories and lore, along with thirty-six lush color photographs. Getting together with friends and family? You will never arrive empty-handed again.
 

PAT'S REVIEW

A cookbook with southern recipes. For me some like the Smokey butter bean spread, Bourbon spiked caramelized onion bacon bean dip, and the Hollywood fried pickles were just a few that stuck out for me and ones that I am going to try. The book is easy to follow and is broken down in sections from dips, spreads, butter, deep fried, fish, and drinks. There even was a cheesecake made with ham. Along with the recipes, there are pictures that add to this book. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 3 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
