I wrote this review for Zine World #24.

At least three folks asked to review this four-in-one vegan cookbook, which should indicate what a hot commodity it is. This professionally bound publication includes all three issues of The Dirty South Cookbook, plus Hot Damn & Hell Yeah. I’ve been cooking out of The Dirty South #1 since I commandeered it from my housemate three years ago, and I can’t wait to try some incredible recipes from Hot Damn & Hell Yeah.

The book is more like a 'zine' and not really a traditional cookbook. The recipes are definitely inspired and regional and provide lots of interesting ideas to people who are not from "the Dirty South" and those who are, alike. The one complaint I've heard about the recipes is that they are not necessarily "healthy" because many items do include frying or deep-frying, and some fatty ingredients. I would suggest that you not eat from this book for every meal, but rather refer to it for new ideas ...more

This is the ONLY vegan cookbook I own whose recipes I have consistently been pleased with and made again and again. The "Dirty South" side, which originally attracted me, has been less of a gem, but the "Hot Damn & Hell Yeah!" side provided me with the now-famous (at least among roommates and dinner guests) recipes for vegan pot pie and chocolate cake. I can't say enough good things about every recipe I have attempted (and, surprisingly, succeeded at) preparing in this book.

This has some really fantastic recipes in it! I've made the chicken fried tofu (or whatever it's called) so many times I don't even have to look at the recipe anymore. I grew up eating a lot of Southern cooking, and crave it often, so this is one of my favorite cookbooks.

It's easier to tell when you're flipping through it, but this is compiled from cookzines and is split in half as two distinct cookbooks. The first one is Tex-Mex and the second is mostly Southern comfort food (with some Trinidad and Ethiopian thrown in). "Hot Damn & Hell Yeah" is written in an affected southwest dialect that comes this close to irritating and includes lotsa skeleton cow-person drawings. "Dirty South" has cool illustrations of its own and uses mostly a conversational tone in ...more

The third edition is superb. You can find it at w/ an updated cover. The herbivorous recipes and artwork are well-done, fun, and certainly original.

Finally made our first meal from this book: buttermilk fried seitan. (Yes, it's a vegan cookbook; the recipe really calls for soymilk.) It was awesome!!

Looking forward to trying these recipes - especially cornmeal mush which I used to eat a lot as an undergrad.
