Editorial Reviews

Boston Herald’s Fork Lift food blog, 10/27/10 “… 800 recipes that will have you whistling Dixie.”Nashville Scene,10/28/10 She brings a no-nonsense instructional voice to the ambitious inch-and-a-half-thick tome — which is conveniently organized around 85 ingredients — and plates it with an endearing side of nostalgia for her grandmother's kitchen. With multiple dishes per page, Algood's short recipes are practical and manageable… In an era of chef-personalities who fill their cookbooks with glamour shots of themselves holding even more glamorous dishes, Algood relies on the character of the recipes. Hers is not a coffee-table book; it's a kitchen-counter book.Tampa 11/10/10 “When Tammy Algood talks of Southern food, she speaks of abundance. … Her 800-recipe book, The Complete Southern Cookbook, celebrates that bounty with traditional and tweaked favorites of her beloved South.”
