What a fantastic book/cookbook! The Jack Daniel’s Spirit of Tennessee Cookbook by Lynne Tolley & Pat Mitchamore is more than just a cookbook. Through the pages of this beautiful book, you’ll find recipes, stories, photos, traditions, and some of the folks who come from the lovely area of Lynchburg, Tennessee. This is a delightful portrayal of the life, character, food, drink, and history of the south.
The recipe sections include: Drinks (of course!), Appetizers, Soups & Salads, Vegetables, Breads, Entrees, Outdoor Cooking, Desserts, Cakes & Pies, and Accompaniments. There are plenty of recipes that include the famous Jack Daniel’s Whiskey, but many more that do not. In addition to the numerous recipes, this book shows a rich heritage of Southern living and hospitality. It is both interesting and informative, with the photos adding beauty and flavor. (Some of the photos are downright stunning!)
While I am not much of a cook myself, I do enjoy reading cookbooks. And this one just plain made me happy. I would recommend it to cooks of all levels, and even to those like me, who like to simply read cookbooks, look at the pretty pictures, and fantasize just a little about being a great cook!
This book was provided to me for review by Thomas Nelson Publishers.
