As Southern as they come with an emphasis on fresh, local food and traditional flavors. The vegetable section of the book is perhaps the most interesting with intriguing options such as cardoons gratin and saffron-braised celery. It's Southern so there's a lot of ham, a lot of greens and more than a few breaded options. Perhaps least inspiring are the desserts with homespun but generic options like peach pie and apple brown betty. Still, the style and heart of the book make this one a charmer.
