Southern Living No Taste Like Home Cookbook


Update! Congratulations to our winner by random draw, Elissa who said...
"Two of my favorites, Deep South Dish and Southern Living! My mama and one of her sisters started my cookbook collection 25 years ago and I would love to add this wonderful book to it!"
Elisa please contact me at mary@deepsouthdish.com to claim your cookbook. I'll need full name and mailing address - congratulations!! I know that you'll love this book.

--------------

As a food blogger, I have had the privilege of reviewing quite a few Southern Living cookbooks and while they have all been fantastic books, I think this is my most favorite one to date.

Organized geographically, Southern Living No Taste Like Home: A Celebration of Regional Southern Cooking and Hometown Flavor by renowned food writer Kelly Alexander, is like a culinary travelogue across more than twenty of the South's tastiest hometowns. "All hometown food is special, of course," she writes, "but I daresay Southern hometown food is extraordinary." Based on my website visitors, I'd have to agree.

You'll receive a warm "Welcome to" to each town and see adaptations of recipes using iconic Southern ingredients from "People to Meet" - local actresses, reality stars, singers, songwriters, pitmasters, journalists, and other celebrities in each town, including of course, local restaurateurs and chefs. In between you'll find recipes from other local folks, along with a smattering of classic recipes from the Southern Living and Oxmoor House test kitchen archives.

"Things to Do Like a Local" sidebars will tip you off with places to see and fun things to do. Some of the features include places like the Atlanta Cyclorama, depicting the entire July 1864 Battle of Atlanta. You'll learn how we say praline here in this part of the Deep South and how to make some, as well as how to make a walking taco and where to find authentic puffy tacos in San Antonio.

You'll be guided where you can go to enjoy the wines of Virginia and how to make or where to find Nashville Style Hot Chicken, an incendiary spicy dish said to be "discomfort food in the best sense of the word" for its heat. You'll learn how to order a meat and three at cafeterias like Niki's West in Birmingham, visit the Versailles in Miami's Little Havana, take in the duck parade at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis, and how to do the Kentucky Derby like a local.

"Foods You Gotta Try," blocks are where you'll find out about local specialties like Gumbo, how to have a Crawfish Boil and how to peel them, exactly what Alabama White Barbecue Sauce is, how to make make Houston Vietnamese foods, Mint Juleps and Kentucky Hot Browns, King Ranch Chicken Casserole, Carolina Barbecue, Benne seeds and Purloo.

From the Heartland of Dixie to Cajun Country, from The Coastal South to Bluegrass, Bourbon and BBQ Country and all points in between, No Taste Like Home truly is a celebration of all the unique flavors of each region of the South.


Here's just a sampling of the kinds of recipes you'll find from each of these six regions.


The Heart of Dixie


In The Heart of Dixie chapter, you'll find features from areas in Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi and local celebrity recipes including Chef Kevin Gillespie's Chili Slaw Dogs, Author Susan R. White's Sour Cream Pound Cake, Pitmaster Myron Mixon's Smoked Whole Chicken, Frank Stitt's Flounder with Lady Pea Succotash, Chef John Currence's Chicken and Duck Pot Pies and John Edge's Mississippi Delta Tamales.

Also included are some favorite recipes from locals such as Smoky Pimiento Cheese Deviled Eggs, Tiny Caramel Tarts, Delta Style Fried Catfish, Mississippi Bourbon Punch, Butternut Squash Bake and Peach Melba Shortcakes, among others.


Cajun Country


Cajun Country is all about Lafayette and New Orleans, Louisiana with recipes for John Besh's Pickled Shrimp, Emeril Lagasse's Fried Oyster Po'boys, Actress Angela Kinsey's Corn Casserole, Miss Kay Robertson's Crawfish Pies and Chef Leah Chase's Creole Bread Pudding, along with recipes from other locals including Hurricane Punch, Chicken, Tasso and Andouille Gumbo, Coconut Almond Cream Cake, Red Beans and Rice and Creole Potato Salad, and more.


Big, Bold Texas


Big, Bold Texas gets its own region, bringing us to places like Houston, Dallas, Austin and San Antonio and featuring Miranda Lambert's mother's Famous Meatloaf, journalist Robb Walsh's uncle's Barbecued Cabbage, actress Eva Longoria's Mint Lemonade, Lady Bird Johnson's White House Pecan Pie, as well as contributions from locals like Grilled Tri-Tip with Citrus-Chile Butter, Mojo Chicken, Chipotle Smashed Sweet Potatoes and Tacos al Pastor, to name a few.


The Piedmont and the Mountains


The Piedmont and the Mountains chapter focuses on North Carolina and Virginia, bringing you finds like reality star Emily Maynard's Cornbread Salad, Chef Dean and Erin Maupin's Strawberry-Rhubarb Cobbler Pie, author Charles Frazier's Soup Beans, along with recipes from locals such as Asparagus-New Potato Hash, Watts Grocery-Style Spoon Bread, Crook’s Corner Shrimp and Grits, Bourbon Glazed Ham and Orange-Sweet Potato Pie with Rosemary-Cornmeal Crust, among others.


The Bluegrass, Bourbon and Barbecue Trail


Kentucky and Tennessee are the focus of The Bluegrass, Bourbon and Barbecue Trail chapter with Chef Kathy Cary's Old-Fashioned Blackberry Cobbler, Chef Kelly English's Tempura Fried Okra, Naomi Judd's mom's Deviled Eggs, Trisha Yearwood's Chicken Pizza, Loretta Lynn's Chicken and Dumplin's as well as recipes from locals for Blackberry Cornbread, The Fat Elvis, Corn Chowder and Sorghum-Glazed Turnips plus many more Southern Living favorites from the archives.


The Coastal South


The Coastal South winds down the east coastal areas of the South, from Maryland to South Carolina, Georgia and Florida bringing us actress Mo'Nique's F.A.T. (Fabulous and Thick, Full and Tasty, Fluffy and Tender) Green Beans, Chef Duff Goldman's Charm City Chocolate Cake, author John Martin Taylor's Frogmore Stew, Rapper Vanilla Ice's Chiles Rellenos, Wayne Brady's grandmother's Red Velvet Cake and Bobby Deen's Crispy Oven-Fried Chicken along with recipes from locals for Low-country Shrimp and Okra Pilau, Maryland Black Walnut Cake, Low-country Red Rice, Rum Cake and others.

In a soft hardcover format that is 10 x 8 inches in size and 320 pages, it is a hefty 2.7 pounds and chock-full of recipes and lots of nice pictures of both local scenery, landmarks and of course, the food. Knowing Deep South Dish readers, I know you'll love this book personally, but it would also make a fabulous gift item for anyone who loves to cook Southern food. Add it to a basket containing the pantry ingredients and a recipe card for one of the recipes here, and you'll have a gift they will remember. Whether you're a Southerner, or someone who got here as fast as they could, I think this book will show you that there really is no taste like home.

Look for it at online retailers like Amazon, or in your favorite bookstores. Also available in Kindle format for a great price.

  11. Although I grew up in the North, I've been in the South since 1986. I'm just an Amateur when it comes to cooking, but I've found by looking at Recipes from around this Great Country & putting my own spin to it, I get a lot of Satisfaction from. Besides, don't have enough Money to Travel around this Great Country, & to old to take Culinary Classes. By doing it my way. is much more Satisfying.

  138. Don't ya'll laugh, but, I do all the cooking in my house. My wife works 10 hour days and is just to tired to cook when she gets home so that's where I had to step up and help her. Cooking is a blast. I am constantly looking for new things to cook up. This book would help a lot! I need idea's. By the way, I need some help making real southern 'red eye gravy'. Any help would be appreciated. Well, keep up the good work and cook on!!!

  158. I just love cooking and learning about cooking traditions from various regions throughout the US. Being from Owensboro, Kentucky, I had to scroll down to "The Bluegrass, Bourbon and Barbecue Trail" first, before reading the remaining regional overviews. Owensboro touts being the "BBQ Capital of the World", and well, we really think it's true! We have the best Burgoo, bar none.
    Love your recipes Mary and thanks for a chance to win!
    Thanks,

  172. Have enjoyed Southern Living more years than I'd care to state!! The blog gives me daily reading into areas I miss and improved insights into their recipes. Reminders of foods from areas I've lived in or have been a frequent visitor to: LA,SC, NC, So. FL, VA and MD. This cookbook would be wonderful to read & cook from as well as exposure to areas I am not familiar with, ex. TX. Am hoping this wonderful cookbook comes my way!!!!!

Would love to have this book and share recipes. :) Antoinette J
