This was our cookbook month for our adult/teen book club. The plan is to read a cookbook or read about a cook and everyone cooks and brings a recipe from it. This month’s book is: A Love Affair with Southern Cooking
I chose this book first because everyone loves to read it and the recipes! I have to admit, it was tons of fun to read. She traveled the South for decades learning all about southern food. The book has great personal anecdotes, a timeline of food in the South, and histories of people and products that are from the South. Many of the recipes I liked, but some were a little too “foreign” for me. 😉 Who knew southern food was so varied and different than what I know!
Peaches for place settings, sunflowers in mason jars with a little burlap and ribbon and bowls of candied pecans.
I also printed some questions to use for our cookbook book clubs. Cookbook Book Club Questions
We had boiled peanuts, grits, okra dishes, sweet potato dishes, etc. Yum!
We also had some iced tea with bourbon and lemon. And we also had some Cheerwine shipped in. Something I’ve never tried. But, they were good!
