Georgia on my mind........ Mar 11, 2010
I live in Georgia, and I have eaten at Johnnie Gabriel's restaurant in Marietta and at Paula Deen's restaurant in Savannah. The food at Johnnie Gabriel's restaurant is better...........and her cookbook is great. The recipes include Southern cooking and American food......there's something for all cooks.
Her cakes are legendary in my area of Georgia.....comprising NW Georgia and the Atlanta area. Want her cakes at your wedding? Book the cake a year in advance.......they're that much in demand.
Recipes have typos! Mar 5, 2010
So far I have tried two of the recipes from this cookbook, and both dishes turned out wonderfully. The caveat, however, is that both recipes contained typos. The ingredient list for the casserole I made lists milk as an ingredient. However, the recipes never instructs the reader what to do with the milk! The pasta dish I made called for 3 OZ. of olive oil to saute garlic! The recipe should have read 3 tablespoons of olive oil. If you are savvy enough to ignore or correct mistakes, then the book contains some great recipes, but I personally found the typos disappointing...

This is a great little book with basic southern recipes. The pictures of the finished recipe makes your mouth water just looking at them. I bought this for my granddaughter so she would always have recipes for some of our favorite foods. I recommend this book to everyone - even if you don't cook it is interesting reading.
We must be cousins! Jan 21, 2010
Cooking in the South is one of the best regional cookbooks it has been my pleasure to come across in quite some while. Johnnie Gabriel has done a bang-up job of explaining Southern culture while she gives us absolutely 100% authentic recipes for old favorites and standbys that have formed the back-bone of Southern cooking across the region for many a decade.
The first recipe I happened on the very second that I opened the book was my mother's recipe for Pear Honey - which we've been making in my family for more than 60 years now. If you've never had Pear Honey, you must try it - easy to make almost any time of the year and simply luscious. Whether it is the Cheese Straws that no good Southern girl of any age would consider throwing a shindig without, or the Pimiento Cheese we all adore so much, the Pound Cake with Caramel frosting or the Key Lime Pie, every single bite is authentic - right down to that Vanilla Ice Cream that we cranked up every Sunday afternoon when I was a girl, the one my kids still produce today.
Don't think Johnnie's little book is all "old" recipes though. I found a wealth of new things to try - a Southewestern Chicken Soup, White Chili, a recipe for the Best Salmon You'll Ever Eat and one I can't wait to try - Roasted Carrot Souffle.
Johnnie Gabriel - Bless Your Heart!
PS - The dessert section is not skimpy either!
Easy down to earth recipes Sep 12, 2009
Liked the idea that these are recipes that most "regular" Americans would fix to eat. Recipes are not complicated and are very flavorable.
