This cookbook made me want to start driving south and sampling all the good food the writer discovered. A lot of the recipes look pretty simple and delicious.I'm definitely going to try making the Pecan Chicken in Woodford Reserve Maple Cream Sauce (though I'll have to borrow a half cup of bourbon from someone!)Nana Deane's Pecan-Coconut Pie from Ray's Dairy Maid in Barton, Arkansas looks good, too!
It may stretch the definitions of "Southern" and "dives" a bit, but is generally a fun book. Full of places to stop if you're out that way, wherever "that way" may be, but nothing stood out as having to make a pilgrimage for.Like some of the best travel/food combos, this is more about the stories about these places and dishes than a strict "recipe" type cookbook.
I was super geeked to find my parents' new neighborhood in the Missouri section. I found it strange that MAINE was in a book that was supposed to be SOUTHERN Dives, and I think it was a stretch to include fancy restaurants, since it's supposed to be Southern DIVES. Not as advertised.
First of all, I love southern cooking! I may never make most of the recipes but I love the stories and history surrounding their inclusion in the book. I think a road trip is in my future!
I loved this book recommended by my daughter. Denise. Fun facts, trivia, food and travel in the south! What more could you ask for? Recipes, oh yes recipes for some of these favorite dives!!
Funky and fun
I have not tried any of the recipes yet, but I'm looking forward to it. I'm also looking forward to trying some of these "dives", when next I'm in the area. Great color photos or the area, regions and food. All restaurants have GPS coordinates, and phone & address, plus a "don't miss" item on the menu, color photos and a recipe or two from each establishment. There are also "Rubbernecker Wonders" listed through out the book, those kitschy stops along your road trip like; Mayberry, Andy Griff [...]
The photography was great and I guess I thought this was more of a coffee table book. Some strange choices in restaurants/dishes for my state were included. And I was honestly shocked to find out how many of the restaurants started with premade items including pie crusts. I guess I was hoping for some insider secrets. So, 2 stars for the recipes, 4 stars for the pics.
Wish I had read this book before I visited 3 states in the book. However, I have seen a couple of the places on other trips.
Some good recipes.
Some really good recipesy would get from libraryy copied a few.
yummy! I did not consider Oklahoma to be a Southern state.
